Here's this month's batch of photos which haven't yet been seen on the blog. A real hotchpotch of things this month.
This is the rhubarb which I'd just planted at my old allotment plot when I found out I'd been given an allotment on a different site. I dug it up again and put it in a container until I could find a space for it on my new plot and it's still here in the container. I must get round to planting it out.
All my container grown fruit has been repotted in fresh compost this year. This photo of my smallest blueberry bush was taken in the first week of April, it's almost in flower now.
A few more photos from Yorkshire Lavender which we visited earlier in the month.
The marsh marigold is blooming away in my little pond, it's really happy there and takes over every year, I have to keep cutting it back.
I'm growing daffodil - Thalia this year. I'd seen them on various blogs and loved the look of them but I was really disappointed when they bloomed, they were a washed out lemon colour and I didn't like them at all. I'm pleased to say that they've improved with age and though they're now going over, they've been beautiful.
The potatoes I've planted in containers are starting to grow. Once they get going there's no stopping them.
In my Colour In January post, only one of my cyclamens were blooming. The other one has now come in to flower, albeit late. This is a pink variety.
I moved my Dicentra spectabilis last year and I'm pleased to see that it's survived the change of home. This photo was taken about ten days ago, it's grown loads since then. I'll always know this plant as Dicentra spectabilis even though it's had a name change to Lamprocapnos spectabilis, perhaps we should just stick to it's common name of Bleeding Heart.
You can see here just how the marsh marigold takes over my little pond at this time of year. I've got irises on the left hand side, they flowered for the first time last year so I'm hoping for a repeat performance this year.
The cherry tree is flowering away, I wonder if there'll be any fruit this year. I think any kind of blossom looks fabulous against a blue sky.
I'll finish with another photo of the daffodil - Thalia, she turned out to be a beauty.
I hope you enjoy these rather random posts I'm putting together at the end of each month.
Enabled - Would you like to see the latest bag of squishiness which arrived through the post from those lovely people at Wool Warehouse? I thought you might so here ...
