We've had quite a bit of rain, although it has now dried up

Properly heavy rain at one point. Definitely enough for the grass to grow and to rescue our privet hedge - never had to water the hedge in the last 20 years - I might have lost a heebee though - it's in a side bed at the front which I have to go round to look at - can't see as I drive past.

I have been just doing the same. Planted spring onions in the greenhouse along with a few others. Manures the veg patch..In this bad time it is nice to have something that is giving pleasure.
My plum tree is looking ok but not the apple trees. I have had an aphid infestation so ordered ladybirds on line.?In the process of doing the garden path. My potatoes are growing like mad😀

My very kind son in law lead the other kids in painting my fence yesterday, over half done and I am so pleased. Spent an hour this morning arranging plants. I was just overwhelmed by his kindness and he says he will come and finish the rest when he has time. It was so hot
That looks lovely. I have got to do mine. I’m collecting plastic bottles. Apparently if you drill holes in them and put string through you can hang them with plants in them. 😀

Oh that’s different, I had some hessian, overlooked the sides and made some pouches. I put plastic bags inside as the hessian deteriorates in water. I used it for potatoes last year, pulled the sack up and the bottom fell out!!
My husband put the fence up the year before he died but it desperately needed painting and it has put a real happy spring in my step today. It’s really stupid as I have been feeling really down in the dumps and tearful but half a painted fence and I am happy as Larry!!

I love being in the garden. It is my escape route. I have just ordered a greenhouse. It’s coming from Germany but I cannot wait😀
