The garden is waking up


Welcome to my new follower Dorothy.




 The last few weeks have been milder so I have ventured out to sort and tidy the greenhouse . It has just turned out to be a bit of a dumping ground.




I only keep the bird food here in the winter months then it will go back in the shed.



All tidy now.




Before Christmas I picked up a mini standard rose in Home Bargains for £3.99 - all of a sudden it has really come to life, as has the rest of the garden.























I picked these up today in Home Bargains for 99p each.



We went into B & Q also, and they had a clearance.






We paid just £3.90 for all of these.




At the end of last summer I was thinking this year I would turn my veg growing area into a flower bed for cutting  flowers to have  indoors, but I have decided against that, we will be avoiding spending to much money in this garden now as this summer could be our last. I will grow some tomatoes, courgettes and peppers in pots. Last year I collected flower seeds, and with the seeds I bought today I will try and avoid buying anything else.

Potatoes have gone in this space.





89p from home bargains. 


So hopefully spending £3.56 will give us a good crop of potatoes.


Nothing nicer than freshly dug spuds.


The last of the indoor Hyacinths are blooming now and I did buy some lovely cheery daffodils this week.





Now ..........
