Last time I took an aerial shot of the back garden it was in the summer and so there was a lot of greenery. Not so now, on this frosty, albeit sunny, morning as we head towards spring.
My hope is that over the coming years there will be more and more in the garden throughout the year, not just amazing green and other colours from July to September. Still, the garlic (left-hand side) is doing well and no doubt will produce a better crop than last year, in view of the cooler winter.
The rhubarb is starting to sprout, which I am pleased about in particular because it was only recently moved. And there will soon be more flowers on the Ruby Anniversary rose. That was definitely worth its cost – somewhere between £10 and £16. If this is anything to go by, I’d recommend buying from the Royal Horticultural Society, especially with the five year guarantee on hardy perennials.
Anyway, time to start sowing – indoors. But first, we’ve got a permablitz meeting this afternoon, so it will be interesting to see how that develops now that the project might finally be getting off the ground. I think in any case it is going to be fun working with other people on a project at someone else’s home.
