Bank Holiday Gardening Report
The shrub next to the back door is covered in pink flowers and lots of bees are buzzing round it.
The mini narcissus are still going and there are blue forget-me-nots all over the place which seeded themselves last year.
There are lots of bluebells in the front garden but we don't have a picture of them. Next we are looking forward to seeing the alliums and the clematis and the roses which have lots of buds on them but are not yet in flower.
After gardening all day my mum had to go and have a long bubble bath. She has got a student teacher (someone who is learning to be a teacher and needs children to practise on) starting next week in her class so it will be interesting to see how he gets on.
Oh yes, and the Great Floofy Gingerflower is already in bloom this year...
Your garden looks very lovely.
Bank Holiday always makes my Mum laugh because when she was in University she went on a student work abroad program to England (London to be exact) and the people at work said it was a bank holiday the next day, but she thought they meant that only the banks would be closed so she went to work anyways - what a dummy! We call our various holidays statutory holidays, so you can see her confusion (sort of); )
by the way we are working on making a pond in our backyard but none of our plants is growing. do you ahve more picks of the pond??we would loves to see them. I hope mombeanworks on the pond hard and then puts fishes in there for me to catch...errr....watch
Our garden is beginning to look much better. I should send mum out to take pictures.
We've been going out into the garden too... Pumpy ran all the way to the back fence and I just sat in the sun. The woman mowed the lawn and pulled a few weeds.
Isn't it nice that spring has sprung?
YOu have a lovely garden to play in.
I hope the student teacher learns a lot from your mum.
