The first day of summer and the sun is shining. It’s Easter Sunday and there’s loads to get done:

– Lawns scarified
– Compost bin emptied and mulched on borders
– Foxgloves, white Astilbes, climbing roses all planted
– Verbena bonariensis potted on ahead of planting in May
– Amelanthele lessoniana divisions potted up

And now? It’s Sherry o’clock, of course!

Missing….!

Spring has been missing since 20 March 2013. It was last seen in April 2012.

When spring was last seen it was all beautiful, azure blue skies, in which shone a watery sun; drifts of golden daffodils and virgin borders studded with butter-yellow primroses.

If you have seen spring please contact me via my blog…

Last years cuttings of Anthemis, Salvia, Lupins and much, much more are now ready for potting on. All of a sudden there aren’t enough hours in the day, nor days in the week. More tomorrow and first seeds to be sowed…
