It has been a while but I was out in the garden on Monday afternoon for an hour and absolutely loved every minute of it. The sun was shining and even had a bit of warmth to it.

The garden was so overgrown and it needed a good clean up. But I only tackled a few bits here and there. Plants that needed to be cut back and cleaned up. Planted up the Hellebores I bought a few weeks ago in B&Q.

Needless to say I literally can hardly walk these past two days, definitely need to pace myself. The pains in the back of my legs is unreal. Obviously out of practice haha....will need to rectify that. But you know I enjoyed every single minute of it too.

I noticed one of the Hellebores I bought H. Tutu is now opened and its a little beauty.

Also great growth going on and the second photo is of my Tree Lupin which I have here now about 4 years and its doing great again with lots of growth.

Last photo are the two 'boys' taking in a few rays lol.....they love nothing more than sitting on the bench and enjoying the warmth of the sunshine.

I hope that Spring is going to be good to us and give us plenty of time in the garden. We are due some good weather now for Summer so lets bring it on and enjoy every single minute of it.

Hope you all get a chance to get outside.....tomorrow is the first day of Spring afterall.

Monday was the best day of the week so far and it is just great to get outside for a few hours. Love that hellebore.

Watch that pain in legs, Jackie. Might be PVD, peripheral vascular disease. See your GP if in any doubt, and make sure (s )he checks for Diabetes, if not done already.

Yes, it was great to be out earlier in the week ... too cold for gardening these last few days. H. Tutu looks gorgeous and Freddie and Rocky are in their element.
