Rain Stops Planting

SHOULD YOU WISH TO ENLARGE ANY IMAGES, CLICK ON THEM, AND REPEAT IF REQUIRED

It was Jackie who was up with the dawn this morning.

Frost and cherry blossom

She was struck by the frost on the Modus whilst the cherry was blooming, as the early sun lit the field behind the oak-lined hedge.

Frost on bench

The Castle Bench also had its share of white coating, although the sun had not yet reached the back.

Ladybird on euphorbia

By the time we drove off to buy 15 more packs of compost from Lidl, a ladybird (or ladybug if you are across The Pond) had been coaxed out to bask on euphorbia.

Palm Bed

We dug three bags of the compost into another section of the Palm Bed, and, until driven in by needle-sharp chilled rain, began inserting plants Jackie bought yesterday.

These evening we dined on Jackie’s delicious steak pie, new potatoes, and crunchy carrots, cabbage and cauliflower. She drank Blanche de Namur and I drank Axis Margaret River cabernet sauvignon 2014.

  1. I really liked the golden scrolling on the edge of the garden bench and can see the frost on the seat of this. I loved the way the flowers are still vibrant in the cold. They are “no shrinking violets!” 🙂

  2. Enjoy your great posts on your gardening progress Derrick, much like Sue Dreamwalker with her great allotment posts, its refreshing to watch peoples gardens come to life with much Love.
    Unfortunately I am limited to two above ground boxes due to renting the property.
    Cheers.
