  1. RHS Potato and Plant Fair 20/02/15

    by , 21-02-2015 at 08:58 PM
    Attended RHS Plant Fair, London on Friday afternoon. It was lovely to see some old friends and collect my order of lily bulbs, saved on postage. I've never seen so many potato varieties, so it was difficult to choose. I went for Lady Belfour (white), Vitolette (purple) and Anya (pink). Unfortunately, nobody was selling Casablanca, it did so well last summer and we enjoyed it in early summer salads.
    Looking forward to plant all my lily bulbs tomorrow.Attachment 53626Attachment 53627Attachment 53628Attachment 53629 ...
  2. First flowers

    I remember weeding last week and seeing no flowers except Christmas Helleborus. Went to prune the rest of fruit trees and was so happy to see little beauties of Crocuses and Iris Reticulata. My hands are itching to start planting, but my butt got so cold after 4 hours in the garden, that I decided it's too early. Sorted all my seeds and trays, waiting for compost to be delivered and more lily bulbs to arrive.Attachment 53384Attachment 53385

    Ah, sweet tulips of mine! Like a sunshine on a rainy day, I smile every morning I have my coffee in the garden. Can't wait for the rest to flower.

  4. Spring in progress, back to gardening

    Nice to be back. Winter was busy, managed to do weeding few times, bought hell a lot of new lilies (where will I grow vegetables this year?) Tulips are nearly there to flower, nice fringy ones.

    I hope everybody is well and happy!
  5. Summer is over

    Summer is over. It was very eventful. Two deaths in the family, one magnificent holiday, things I shouldn't have done, change at work, 2 babies born to friends, garden is developing nicely, 5 poems written, became a godmother, made loads of jam, sent clothes to charity, started decorating inside the house!
