The weather of late has been quite grim, with endless rain and low temperatures. However, we have had a slight improvement of late and whilst the temperatures are still low for this time of year the rain has slowed and the sun has showed her face. The grass is in need of a good cut, we are having to use the strimmer as it is so long. The mower will have its work cut out.
The garden room is in need of a good sort out too, with some plants in need of planting on. Sadly some seeds not even started as yet. What a difference the weather makes to mood as we make our plans this morning with so much more enthusiasm. Let me take you on a little tour of the garden room, I will warn you in advance it is a photo heavy post.
Not as much as usual going but we have decided to focus on the positive not the negative. The tyres we use for beds are doing well. Let me take you on another tour.
The mint is prolific and needs to be curtailed, it has spread beyond the tyre and needs to be stopped before it takes over. I have several bunches hanging in the kitchen to dry, as you can imagine it smells beautiful. The tyres need a good weeding but we are going to focus on the grass for now, slow but steady.
In other news, it should have been freedom day in England today but due to rise in numbers and a new variant of Covid this has now been delayed. The vaccine programme is doing so well both in Scotland and in England, it is hoped that this will help and have a positive effect.
I will close for now and thank each and everyone of you for your visit and as always for your uplifting comments. I need to rush and get ready for my aerobics class which has now started up again. It is so nice to chat and see other people. A touch of normality beginning to return to our lives, which has been a long time coming. Take care.
See you soon.
