A new post from the new house. The Goldfinches are regular visitors along with the Greenfinch, A Blue Tit, Blackbirds, Collared Doves, Pidgeons, House Sparrows, and today a female Chaffinch..
The flowers are blooming nicely in the sunshine.I have spent a lot of time packing boxes at the old house over the weekend, and started to move them today.
A handfull of plants remain to be moved, and my large collection of pots from the outhouse!
The rain has been falling for days and the water butt here is totally full, and over flowing.We need a second rain butt and stand to collect the excess.
The raised beds are looking productive. Onions, Garlic, Shallots, and Carrots are growing on. The over wintered Strawberry plants have a few flowers growing on them.
The Strawberrys from the planter are growing masses of flowers. They should be very productive this year.
The greenhouse is full of bedding plants, and vegetable plants growing on. Two venus flytraps stand guard to keep the flys down.
The new garden is waiting to be developed, with the first border done, and the raised beds at the back. The fruit trees are all developing their fruits. I hope we can identify what is growing soon!
Its a lovely sunny day, with the smell of cut grass from the front of the house (Cat is in charge of the lawns).
