I’ve some images building up that I didn’t post last week… so I’ll try to put you off reading with photos instead 😀
A nice long weekend is ahead of us for Easter bank holiday. It’s a very much appreciated holiday too. I really need it. No, really.
And to make things better, my order from the RHS has arrived – Agapanthus and Delphiniums.
So, what happened with the snow?
Well, yes I woke to some but not much. I think we got off lightly here as there was probably less than a centimetre and it was just beginning to settle on the roads as I set off to work. Other parts of the city, however got something like 29cm! I guess it makes up for a few months ago when we got around 5inches and the rest of the city had nothing.
However, I do still have casualties – thanks to the high winds that also arrived. I think I’ve lost my Iceberg Rose, which although it is beautiful and I do love its white blooms I’ve had a difficult relationship with it and perhaps it’s a good thing that I can now replace it with Susan Williams-Ellis which is also a wonderful repeat bloomer but also has the added bonus of having wonderfully scented blooms.
A lot of the Daffs and Narcissi are now also bent/broken over, plus Hellebore ‘Tutu’ but that’s about the extent of the damage that I’m aware of so far.
I moved the spring pots by the front door containing Tulips closer to the house so they would be protected when snow arrived… Typically it all decided to snow on the front of the house – normally rain and such hits the back and rarely ever the front windows.
Right, I had better get doing some house work… Haha, who am I kidding???! By housework I mean sitting in the garden looking busy.
