Can't believe it is almost a year since I last wrote in the journal. Although I have ben following Garden IE on Facebook.

Last year as we all know it was the most awful summer. The garden got away from us as the year progressed. It was just impossible to keep it in order. My husband found grass cutting a trial.

Despite this I had some plants which did well. I actually managed to have a good crop of tomatoes despite lack of sun.

I was out gardening this afternoon as it was sunny and there was a little warmth. It feels good to start tidying beds and seeing all the spring bulbs coming up.


Well this year we are going to have a brilliant summer! Gardeners are always optomistic.


I have ordered my seeds from the Irish Garden Plant Society so hoping for a good gardening year.

Of course you are right - we need an antedote to the doom and gloom.

Welcome back.
