Enjoying Spring

I had a glorious afternoon in the greenhouse and garden.

It was so lovely, despite a brief hailstone shower!

I made up 15 small pots of 'Oregon Sugarpod' mange-tout and 25 of Pea 'Oasis' and parked them in the greenhouse.

And then I just sat there for about half an hour, enjoying the sunshine, until I got called.

Lovely shade of blue that plant. It was too windy where I was to go out so did some transplanting inside. Tomorrow is another day hopefully.

My secret is out. Will pretend to be asleep next time, Ladybird : )

Sorry about your bulbs, Fran. I find the safest thing with bulbs is to plant them in pots. The at least you are guaranteed to get to see them the first year : )

Jurga, I have only one aspect in my garden - full sun. It means there are several plants I can't yet grow. I'm hoping to grow some shelter eventually.

Lovely photo, had hailstones here as well along with driving rain as well accompanied by the March wind.
