Today I had some gardening moments which was really, really nice since in winter there were virtually none. The vege. garden is ready to be planted and I wanted a few other plants to add some more colour as it gets warmer. As hubbie needed to buy hardware items for the rebuilding of the pergola, it was the perfect opportunity for me to tag along with him and spend a very pleasant half hour in the gardening section of the store.
I came home with three tomato plants, one of which is a cherry tomato, two perpetual lettuce plants and a punnet of mignonette lettuce seedlings, some basil and marigolds to plant around the tomatoes. I also planted some bush bean seeds which I hope will germinate as they are bit old. I also bought some lobelia and petunia seedlings, some diascus and a verbena.
The day was beautiful and we all enjoyed the sunshine including the animals.
The echium coming into flower.
Spring - beautiful.
