94. How Does Your Garden Grow?
I have tiny daffodils I repeat I have tiny daffodils! In my own garden!
The rest of the garden however is barren, the bulbs I planted have yet to come up and it's all looking very unloved and neglected. There are however signs of hope, the bluebells are popping up, their thick green leaves growing by the day and the apple tree has buds starting to form. Talking of the apple tree I am after some advice - I planted it 3 years ago and last year I remember cutting it back a bit pre-Spring but not when I did it, it that something I should have already done or should be doing now? Thank you in advance!
It seems like ages since we were in France, Ozzy declared this week that he is saving his pocket money to go back there, sweet, sweet little boy.
To what I like to think of as Plant Mummy Corner...
To my favourite spot at Wisley, the Apline Houses:
We walked over to a section that we haven't been to before, to numbers 33 - 37 on the map below:
The tall trees, the heather and the space makes this the perfect spot for a picnic at Wisley and even on a very busy half-term weekend it was really quiet in this area. Walk to the end and you reach a Hide - I love the board where people can chalk what they have seen...blue tit, wren, moorhen...armadillo, herring, t-rex! Give the Great British public a visitors book or a black board and you can rely on some mighty funny comments, every time.
Finally, I have been looking at these a lot in my kitchen - good times!
Thanks to all who joined in last week, as always I'm sharing some faves but this week in photos - just click on the images below to visit the posts!
Until next week - and it's a special one next Thursday, my *whispers* 40th birthday!
