It’s all coming along rather splendidly out back, so I’ve just take a few pictures for you.
You may recall we cut our rose bushes right back last year and all three are doing OK.
It is the red one that’s sluggish, and finally we have one bud coming through, possibly two.
The ancient mariner has LOADS of buds on it and will be an absolute picture when the pink showy blooms come out. For now though, it’s all green!
Our yellow Peace bush is the first to flower and there is another waiting in the wings to come forth. I’m really pleased because last year we had nothing.
Our flower bed is a mass of colour, sadly not shown to its full advantage in my photo
We’ve let it go wild to do its own thing and it’s lovely to see bees and butterflies coming to visit. The buddliah is leafy, but no flowers yet.
Meanwhile we are looking more like a garden
The greenhouse is flourishing with a beetroot, second batch of radishes, carrots, swede, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cucumber, peppers, a stray green bean plant and some late comer tomatoes (latter two out of shot)
The potatoes are also doing well in the junk plot, especially alongside our mint plant (on the left at the back behind the small conifer) which is four times the size it was last year.
Coming back indoors I saw this:
Yep, more wind surfers on the beach, and apparently the ice cream parlour and one of the cafes on the prom has opened.
Bank holiday this weekend, so no doubt we shall be seeing more of the above and this……..
