Tuesday at Two (April 23rd)

What a beautiful day!


It’s a breezy day – a cool wind but when the sun comes out really warm. And spring is rushing along now.

After congratulating my dear neighbour, Mr Barth, on his 101st birthday this morning, I gathered some wild Bear’s Garlic from beneath his Magnolia Tree, which is just starting to flower.

My Ornamental Fuji Cherry (Prunus Incisa Kojo-no-Mai) is also flowering now, just to the left of my Tuesday view…


I saw this cherry in my Mum’s garden last year at Easter and fell in love with it – when I returned home my local garden centre had them on sale! (The bees love it too!)


Later I’ll be planting some English Mint, Pineapple Sage and Parsley, and sowing my carrots, chard and kale.

Bear’s Garlic Pesto for dinner tonight!


What are you sowing/planting in the next week or so?
