sunshine and a spot of gardening...
Last weekend was glorious… if I owned a garden chair I would have sat in it and had a little snooze!
The sun was shining and the washing was on the line. On a bit of a whim we headed over to the garden centre to seek out some plants. Admittedly, we might have become a little over excited when faced with so many multi-buys.
Plants were piled into the trolley based on a not particularly strict criteria: did we like the look of it? Yes? Well, in it went. So we have a peony, rose, lupin, foxgloves, hyacinths, a dogwood and a few others whose names escape me.
Back in the garden, I danced around the borders pruning (or inexpertly chopping, really) everything I could get my secateurs on... meanwhile Chris extended the border on one side of the garden to house our new arrivals. We ran out of daylight before we had a chance to plant anything, but I'm excited to start that this weekend.
Elsewhere in the garden, the little crocus I planted back in winter and the daffodils planted by a previous owner are flowering. The large plant close to the house is awash with hundreds of little yellow flowers… I don't suppose any of you know what type of plant this is?

By the way, did you see yesterday's post about a giveaway I'm hosting? See that post here.
