Speaking of garden – I love this time of year! The clematis montana has been in flower for a couple of weeks, and now the cherry blossom has joined in the cascade, too biggrin.gif

We have tomato and cucumber seedlings in the greenhouse, and broccoli and lettuce seedlings hardening off before planting. The peas are showing, the carrots in the raised bed have germinated for once, and rocket and beetroot, too. The potatoes in the main bed are sprouting now, and we’ve planted six tubs of seed potatoes we were given at Hughenden (NT) walled garden biggrin.gif I must get some more lettuce on the go, and am just biding my time before getting going with squash, chard, sunflowers and beans. Oh yes, the broad beans are well on their way, too …

But there’s plenty of weeding to be done (DH’s job) – mostly in the flower beds, which are a fair way down the priority list but DH likes the distraction when he’s busy – that’s Friday’s day off sorted then laugh.gif
