Easter long weekend was lovely, sunny and very warm
We decided to spend some time in the garden.
We weeded and added organic blood and bone
Some lime to sweeten the soil
And planted more seedlings
We still have chillies producing and eggplants have flowers so I’m hoping we will get a few before
The weather turns really cold
My Camilla's are flowering
And promise to make a stunning boarder in a few years
Today I got out my quilts, the ones I still have.
And decided to display them on my old clothes horse
I would love to get one of those old fashioned ones
But for now this will do
There is even room for a couple more!
Our newest granddaughter is due one week from today
So we are all just waiting now for her to make her appearance
Life is just moving along
Greek Easter is in four weeks
So we will do the egg thing again then
Hope you all had a lovely Easter
Or just a nice break
See ya xx
Look at all those quilts. You're leaving leaving a legacy there. What a great display.ReplyDelete
You've reminded me that we used to put lime on the compost. I might look and see if K has any in the shed. I use anything and everything.
It’s a few years worth I hope once I’m gone my descendants appreciate themDelete
Yup lime on the compost is great. Helps break it down quicker I think
That straw mulch looks attractive - F and Mr T used to take little naps in the straw mulch at our allotment on sunny days. We were just imagining that warm (not burning hot) sunshine, prickly bits of straw, tickly things you imagine are insects, humming of bees, bird song in the big hedge beside our garden, very distant urban sounds and the occasional aeroplane....nice smells...fresh straw does smell nice.ReplyDelete
It’s organic sugar cane mulchDelete
It breaks down and adds nutrients to the soil as well as keeping weeds down and moisture in
