For a little while now I’ve had the urge to do a bit of gardening – a very rare feeling so best taken advantage of!

The Golfer had been to the garden centre for me coming back with required items, so on Saturday before I put the binding on my quilt, and while the sun was shining ‘cos it’s going to be wet and cold all week, I got out in my gumboots

I noticed that the daphne is starting to get a multitude of flowers and will soon be opening out its fragrant blooms

and last year’s dahlias are now all in one pot – not sure if I need to trim back the greenery, but we’ll see how they go

I planted out some pink

and some white polyanthus – probably needed to get more but…….

We now have some fresh herbs growing; chives, basil, coriander and some self sewn parsley which I rescued

In the other overgrown, weedy herb container I found a tiny mint sprout so it’s now in its own pot……and finger crossed

Also finger crossed for these lavender cuttings that I took. The current lavender must be close to 30 years old and looking a bit worse for wear, so hoping to replace it with at least one of these

It was a very productive day, all in all. Now all this rain will see my new plants well settled.

    You have been busy, after years of trying to keep mint growing in a pot, I shoved my plant into one of the garden beds, it looked very sad over summer (I didn’t water it very much) but now it is trying to take over the bed, just need to find a recipe that uses a lot of mint now. Love your gumboots, they look bright and cheery.
