Weekly picture diary - what a great idea. Your lottie is in full growing mode now.
I think the picture diary pages will tart to become longer from now on, Julieanne.
After all the reading I've done this morning this was a lovely post to view...even if it does make me realise that my plot looks like an abandoned field at the moment!!
I'm glad that you enjoyed it, Tanya. Remember there are two of our us and we don't have to fit work in.
What a lovely update. Your blueberries are way ahead, mine only have leaf buds on the stem at the moment. I just wish these winds would ease up so I can get out and do more so I'm not so ashamed of my sad state of a garden!
We have four different blueberries, Deborah and this is our earliest variety. It's been very windy here too today.
Your rhubarb's huge! I love this weekly picture diary idea.
Over the years my diary has had various formats, Sarah. I rather like the latest format it's more manageable than the earlier ones.
Lots of lovely mulchWhat's up with your soil between the chives. Looks like the surface of the moon!But I wish my garden was as tidy.
That area had become overgrown with autumn raspberries, Roger. I dug them, split and replanted last year but I also went through removing as much bindweed and couch as possible, The soil is very craggy and will get lots of mulch this year. To be honest the close up photograph does make it look worse than it actually is.
Everything looks great. I am also happy with my orchard. Everything is slowly waking up. What is a cardoon? I've never heard of it before.
Cardoons look like giant globe artichokes, Bonnie but they have smaller flowers. Bees love them. Apparently you can eat the stems but we grow them as ornamentals. In mid summer the flowers stems reach about 10 feet tall.
The shoots are so promising, Sue! The flowers are so beautiful!
It's a lovely time of year, Endah
Every thing looks full of promise Sue.
I'm hoping that the promise is fulfilled, Brian.
Loved seeing everything bursting into life!xxx
Glad that you enjoyed it, Dina.
