I decided it was time to take a walk around my garden and enjoy it instead of just working in it!
Along the roadside the wild cow parsley is doing an excellent job of hiding the taty remains of the daffodils.
Outside the conservatory a pot of aquilegia is flowering
On the way up the hill to the veg patch I pass a rhododendron
At the top is a copper beech tree. As a child living on the edge of Manchester we would often go into Heaton Park where there was a huge copper beech which I loved. So we planted one here.
In the greenhouse most of the apricots I so lovingly fertilised with a brush fell off! But the peaches are hanging on so here’s hoping.
In another part of the greenhouse nasturtiums overwintered and are flowering again. I love them for their beauty but also eat the leaves and flowers in salads
In the veg beds I couldn’t bear to pull up these forget-me-nots and the peas don’t seeem to mind!
This apple tree is extra special because I grafted it myself. (The less said about the others which didn’t take the better!)
If I carry on into the woods the bluebells are flowering.
I am so lucky to have all this.
