Saturday in the garden

Saturday again and what a glorious day it has been. The sun has been shining for most of the day and I've spent nearly all of it either pottering in the garden or the greenhouse. It's been lovely finding flowers that I thought we'd pulled out when we altered the garden last year.

The crocuses were found hiding beneath the twisted willow tree; there are about six that have managed to survive all the digging out from last year, the others were all put in pots. The primroses were nestling underneath the yew tree, don't they look pretty, all ready for some spring sunshine.Last year Chris, sent me packets of seeds that she had collected from her garden and I have been sorting through them all and sowing them in the greenhouse so if all goes well, I should have a garden full of flowers this year if they all grow. I've still loads more to put in but I'd left the compost outside and it was too wet to sow any more so I'll have to wait until it's dried out a bit. Actually feeling as though spring might just be round the corner.......

hugs,

What an exciting post Sue! I love gardening to bits!!
I know it just looks like a bunch of dirt in pots right now, but that last picture is my fave! I can't wait to see your sprouts and you must post a pic of your greenhouse in action! You lucky duck...a greenhouse...I only wish! Used to have one at my old house but had to leave it as part of the deal...sigh.

Oh how I wish I had your green thumb! My mother can grow anything, anywhere...sadly, she did not pass that gift on to me!! I admire women that can grow things!
