Preparation

This is what I planned to do today.



But this is what we did instead...




Cleared the vegetable garden pathways and turned over the beds.

It was chilly and damp, as well as hard work.




Spring seems to have gone back into hiding.
Thank goodness for flowers,
and cake.

  1. I can't get up any enthusiasm for gardening while it's still so chilly. Your garden looks nice and tidy and right ready to make a start.

    1. Left to my own devices I wouldn't have gardened either, Sue. Books were calling me.

    1. Hello Cat Lover, Welcome. They made me do it, the chilly weather makes me lazy! Somehow I think our weather is probably mild compared to yours. I'll pop over for a visit later.

  3. Oh. dear. I hope it warms up quickly on that side of the Atlantic. We catch a plane tomorrow afternoon to Frankfort and then a quick one to Amsterdam to start our river cruise on the Rhine.

  9. Thank you everyone, I really appreciate your comments. Spring is still teasing us, drenching, cold rain all night and more expected over the weekend.

    Sorry about the lack of personal responses, my energy levels are pretty low but normal service will be resumed as soon as possible. Have a lovely Easter and be sure to eat plenty of chocolate eggs tomorrow.
