I managed to clear one small bed yesterday and rake up the rest of the leaves under the maple tree which revealed lots of alliums which always seem to self seed in my garden and a load of tulip bulbs emerging.
I have some more sweet pea seeds on the go and the battle with the mice is on going,I have previous experience with mice when we lived in an old farmhouse so know there is never only one mouse!!
Today I have managed to plant onions,garlic and shallots but they were all in the raised bed but the poor back is still protesting,
Another plant I have in my garden is Euphorbia x pasteurii 'John Phillips',it is slightly tender and although it didnt die in the previous cold winters we have had it certainly didn't perform as well.So I took cuttings and now have 3 in different places
So rays of sun please continue to shine and make us reflect and have a light heart
