Hubby has now marked out where the raised beds for the vegetables are going. We now have the all of the wood that we need to start building. I am sure building will start this weekend.
The seedlings are really coming on and we have had even more growth this week.
The daffodils are now starting to die off, but they are being replace by tulip buds and peonies. The cherry trees down the bottom of the garden are becoming full of flowering blossom. I was disappointed to see that my beautiful magnolia has lost nearly all of its petals, however I was delighted and intrigued to see that it has new buds which look to be full of purple petals. So I am excited to see what they look like once they open.
This is how our garden has grown this week...
|Marking out where the raised beds will go|
|We have covered the grass where the raised|
bed will go with cardboard. This should kill off
the grass and make it easier to dig over.
|We now have 4 cucumber seedlings|
|New magnolia flowers starting to come out|
|Tulips waiting to open|
|Now that the weather is warming up we are |
opening up the cold frame during the day.
|One of my favourite flowers in our garden is|
definitely the peony. I love the beautiful
large red flowers, I was pleased to see
the buds are coming!
