How Does Your Garden Grow? 1.
Easter Holiday this week – so I’ve been planting French bean, pea and marigold seeds, potting on the courgettes, cosmos, chard, sweet peas & pansies, and generally having quality time in my favourite place.
The wildlife have been busy too…
I wonder what next year’s Ladybirds will look like!?
I have also joined up with Annie at Mammasaurus and her ‘How Does Your Garden Grow?‘ project.
Annie’s blog is inspirational and beautiful – food for the eye and the mind.
I’m looking forward to a virtual weekly meeting with the other participants in HDYGG and following what is going on in their gardens… humbly, having compared my photographic skills with those on the other blogs… but bottom of the pile is a good place to start, as the only way is up!!

Snatching a little time to potter is so precious. I found some bags of clean sand being offered on Freecycle, so took the opportunity and did one of the garden’s most satisfying and most dreaded jobs – renewing the grass edging with a cleanly cut sandy trench.
A satisfying job, because it does make the grass look so smart.
Dreaded, because it always leaves me aching all over – must be a wonderful workout!
I love the principles behind Freecycle – that one person’s waste will be of use to another… I also picked up some Victorian Rope Edging tiles this week, but they’ll be used for a project that is yet to be conceived!
Who needs the gym when they’ve got a spade and Freecycle?!
Here’s an illustration of how my garden grows this week –
