Hello, I hope you're enjoying the lovely spring weather. This time of year always sees me coming up with a new plan for the garden, which more often than not doesn't happen for various reasons! but I'm hoping this one will. I was inspired by Sarah Raven's TV series "Bees Butterflies and Blooms" and last time I was at the garden centre I bought some packets of seed to scatter in our wild area to try and boost it a bit. Then I had a brainwave of leaving more of the garden to do it's own thing and ordered a bigger pack of seeds from Nicky's Nursery that I'm going to sprinkle over the grass area on the left of the garden and see what happens!
I've marked it out roughly with canes, and I'll just leave that area unmown and hope some of the flowers germinate. It's a gamble, with all the rabbits and pigeons but hopefully something will grow! There's already lots of tiny violets around the apple tree.
and the primroses are opening at the end of the garden
I'm really looking forward to seeing what comes up and hope it encourages more wildlife into the garden.
I'll leave you with a picture of my lovely Mother's day flowers. The girls couldn't make it home
this year, being in the middle of exams and year end projects, but it won't be long 'till Easter :)
