Aldi Greenhouse in my back porch!
At last I have a start made! I got the Aldi 3 tier greenhouse last Sunday and set it up in my back porch which is south facing and nice and warm. It is great to have it near to hand as it is so much easier to keep an eye on it. I sowed some flower seeds - Gallardia, Gazania, Verbena, Echinacea and Geranium. I also sowed a packet of hebe franciscana varregata which I picked up in Barcelona last year. The Gallardia and Gazania had germinated yesterday - just 6 days! (photo in my Eeyore album)
Declan, my handy man hubby, made me two nesting boxes during the week (photo added to Handyman album) and I need to get these erected this week. My bird feeders are still very busy and I am keeping a good variety of food out for my little feathered friends. There is no end in sight to this cold snap.
It is great to see the stretch in the evenings - after a few more weeks I should be able to get out in the garden for a little when I get home from work. I am looking forward to that!

I got my copy of The Irish Garden in the post today and it was lovely to see you featured in the Member Profile. Congrats! It is great to put a face to a name!
