Spring Gardening

Well, Spring has certainly sprung in this neck of the woods and I have been bitten by the gardening bug. Totally distracted from my sewing, pottering around the garden.

I have discovered Pinterest, which is also a major distraction – but oh so inspiring!!!!!

This picture is my attempt at stacking some pots with herbs, flowers & veggies. I have planted mint, basil, strawberries, tomato, pansies & violas (Johnny Jump Ups).

My other attempt was just at grouping some pots with strawberries, peppermint, thyme, beans, violas, silverbeet, parsley and a couple of geranium cuttings to fill a gap.

My only problems is when I let “the girls” (bantam chooks) out to free-range so have to cover them up with bird netting to keep them out.

My new crab apple (Tom Matthews) has also just started flowering, such a lovely shade of pinkish red. You can see “the girls” in the background of the photo.

More planting & organising this weekend planned as we are trying to finish off the garden (mind you it has taken nearly 2 years to get this far) and we only have a very small garden, but haven’t had the time or funds to get very far. Still a way to go but so much closer than a few weeks ago – having lovely weather is also a great help.

Hope you get a chance to catch some rays this weekend.
