Early summer sunshine


By gwendas


Hello everyone!
Hope you have been able to enjoy your gardens as much as I have done today?
We are due some of the rain and strong winds parts of the country have been experiencing but not until Tuesday I think, so I have been tying in clematis new growth, rambling roses and honeysuckle and staking various plants just in case!
Over the last week and finishing off today I have been changing my pots for summer – out with the finished bulbs etc and in with new phlox, petunias and marigolds for summer colour. My birdcage is planted up and the cherry tomatoes hanging basket – both just waiting for Rog and drill to put up hangers!
Am off tomorrow too so after going to get yet more compost I hope to get my courgettes in their willow planter and also aim to sow some beetroot and rainbow chard in pots. The potato planters seem to be successful – fingers crossed for lots of new spuds!
So glad to now have some time to catch up on GOY with your photos and news. We have been so busy here with our Mayday festivities – bigger than Christmas in our Cornish household! I have also had my pregnant daughter Kat here for it all too. She has gone home now rested and fatterned up a bit as she had been so poorly with morning sickness and a stint in hospital on a drip. But all seems to be going well with the ‘king prawn’ as her partner calls it! She hopes to have a gender scan soon – I never wanted to know what mine were, part of the surprise I think, but seems to be the thing to do now?
Right! enough chat, must look at what you’ve all been up to!
Love from Jo x

Thanks all and for your good wishes to my Kat.
I agree Lincslass forget housework - the garden's much more fun and rewarding. We too need some rain - preferably night time!
