In the garden

On Friday nights I watch “Gardening Australia” and convince myself I’m a gardener – yes, I can do all that! Then I wake up on Saturday morning and realise I’m really a quilter!

However, on the last show the wonderful Millie Ross presented a segment on pruning roses. The next morning, Saturday, I followed her advice, took heart in hand and pruned, Really, Heavily pruned the roses, fed them and mulched them with leaves.

The Golfer gasped when he saw what I’d done – eeek! Finger crossed they survive and thrive!

The daphne is set to bloom soon

The sweet peas are growing apace

After re-potting all the orchids I wasn’t expecting any flowers this year but I have not only one

but two spikes!

I think I told you I’d made a “bulb lasagne” and the bulbs are starting to sprout – so exciting!

and the wheelbarrow is giving endless joy, seeming to change every day I look out the kitchen window with more and more flowers appearing

Gotta love a Winter garden! How’s your garden looking?

  1. My garden is in a state of benign neglect, so I shall simply take delight in yours. The professional gardeners who take care of the roses near here tend to prune back hard, so I’m sure yours will be fine!

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
