Yesterday was a fantastic day here in Dublin and it got up to 18C at one stage.

I spent a couple of hours in the garden doing a bit of tidying up, the most I have spent out there in ages and I really enjoyed it. Put some well needed compost down on the long border and planted up another few plants in waiting. 

Then out came the lawnmower and I 'hoovered' the garden. Its amazing how that can change the whole look of the garden. It takes up all the lose bits and all the debris, so was looking really well in the sunshine.

Very pleased with how it was looking by the time I had finished.  I also planted up a few seeds and my Dahlia too, so looking forward to seeing all those coming up soon!

And then today back to the usual March weather and its not going to get much better over the weekend. 

I hope though they did get that wrong and we can have some more time in the garden.


Hope you all have a lovely St Patricks Weekend

Yes, it was a scorcher. I spent all day doing stuff too.

Your garden looks great, Jackie.

Thank you all for your lovely comments, really appreciate them.

I am so disappointed that the weather has turned again, an absolutely miserable day here since 1pm. Just as the local parade was getting started, the heavens opened!! It doesnt look like its going to get much better in the next few days either!
