A short while ago, there was a rainbow to the south-west of the house. Yes, it’s drizzling and sunny at the same time. And windy, so doing my Friday morning inspection of the gardens has been quite exhilarating, one way or another.
I forgot to take a photo of the rainbow but the camera did come out for the first onion sprouting. It also happens to be the most mangy looking, so who knows.
Anyway, whilst outside staightening up the onion sets, I could plainly see the garlic bulbils coming through. There was one the other day but I decided not to get excited in case it was an errant crocosmia or bluebell. The stems are too thin, though, and the spacing too regular.
On the other hand, I found some thick plastic to cover up part of the front garden where lawn is starting to regrow. As there is green manure under the plastic in addition to the grass, this patch should really be quite fertile once the plastic comes off later in the year. And fingers crossed the grass will have got the message to not come back!
