A lovely weekend calls for pottering around the garden and car boot sales. We came home with a couple of good finds: jars, a lemon squeezer I always wanted, toys and books, an enamel teapot for £1.50 and a an oil painting for £2 which is waiting for a suitable frame and will grace our living room wall. The car boot sale was excellent this week, it seemed that everyone had a massive clearout and brought it all along.
The teapot’s colours are really nice, it will be perfect for the garden. Forgive my back wall, the kitchen is not finished.
Husband is making an orange frame for the painting. In other DIY news, Freddie’s room needs decorating, the white is bit dull in his small space.
In the garden things are really growing, I have few fritillaria flowers, at first I thought I planted the bulbs too deeply because as soon as they came up they started to turn their heads down and the bells were almost touching the ground but soon enough they bolted.
Hyacinths are providing brightness to the garden and things are getting green. I am also impatiently awaiting the apple blossom, should be any day now, the buds are nearly bursting.
Cavolo nero and carrots are doing great inside and pok choi, mustard and radishes germinated last week outside so there will be something to much on soon.
I have a production line of flowers in the greenhouse, cosmos and zinnias are germinating like crazy but sadly Bells of Ireland and euphorbia are just sitting there, has anyone had any experience with these? Are they supposed to take that long?
