Since it’s very clear we won’t be getting any nice sunny photos of the next few days at least… I’m using some taken last weekend…
I think I need some pretty colours right about now, but actually I’d really just love some sunlight. It’s almost as bad as being in the middle of winter with less daylight – but at least then we actually had sun!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m no fan of hot places. But as long as I have the sunlight then I can fight off this depressing feeling; it’s the dull grey that gets to me after a while.
Tulips are coming into bloom, not that I can take photos of them though and I worry that they will soon die thanks to being so wet. I can’t imagine they will come back next year.
And finally, Clematis ‘Willy’ has its charming little bells, I’m considering flooring it due to the move last year it has fresh growth at its base and then a gap and more at the top. It isn’t looking too attractive, so hopefully if I chop it we’ll get more fresh growth and perhaps a second flush later in the season – as it’s known to do so anyway.
Aquilegia blooms always look beautiful, I’ve a number of them around the garden now and am looking forward to the doubles blooming in the coming weeks.
Oh yes, and also I had a shock today… I have a bloom on my Peas… They’re still indoors on the windosill waiting to be planted! So tomorrow I’ll be emptying the veggie planter, adding in new compost and getting them planted regardless of how wet it is. They need to get outside. Same with the Sweet Peas and Tomatoes.
