Last garden photos of 2011
Can't believe it is so long since I have written anything. Where do the weeks go? Too much time spent on Facebook.
I have had 3 or 4 sessions in the garden already this year. Mostly cutting back and weeding. We tackled the Bay Tree and cut off all the dead branches from last winter. All now waiting to be shredded.
I have also been potting up lupins in the greenhouse and penstemons that I grew from cuttings. The penstemons are in the house to protect them from the cold.
The Witch Hazel flowered from Christmas Day and the snowdrops, crocus, primroses and irises are going strong at the moment. Lets hope there will not be much snow.
I have sweet pea seeds ready to sow . This time of the year all the new cataloguies are coming in. Great temptation!
Starting to think about Hillsborough Horticultural Society's Spring Show on 31st March and helping to plan for the Irish Garden Plant Societys AGM which the Northern Group are planning this year 12th and 13th May.
Off out into the garden wwhile the sun is still shining.
