With the pressures of work little or no time for the garden,Potted on tomatoes, chilli peppers and sweet peppers all seedlings have been evicted from the house to the tunnel. Planted some of the sweetpea into the bed on the NW of the house to climb up trellis should be scented so good near the back door. Sowed a few different seeds broadcast in beds to hopefully provide a bit more colour. Tulips are opening on a daily basis and putting on a good show and on the whole plants are looking good. Need to spend sometime in the kitchen garden to sow or plant out some more veg and must try to organise more into the polytunnel oh to have more time. Was busy working including today but Johnny and Ali have been levelling and raking either side of the new drive along with David who is now on leave after 6 months in Kosovo so it's starting to look good hopefully grass seed will be sowed tomorrow and everything will be helped along by the welcome rain. We were really lucky no rain all day really but at 6:30 it was torrential but the air is so fresh now, rain last night made no impression on the hard ground at all. Have posted up some more photos of our garden in April, photo of Clematis Alpina which is one of 2 I bought for £10 stg such delicate little bell like flowers. With any luck will get to a garden centre tomorrow to find some replacement shrubs some veg plants and a few more flowers hopefully and then plant in the nice warm and watered earth. One thing that is proving more and more difficult is reading journals and adding comments especially as I'm very slow on putting up comments and journals but it's interesting seeing all the work going on.
