Last of the scilla
Hello dear friends! I didn't plan on taking a blogging break but one day turned into another and before I knew it, two weeks had passed! I've been trying to get a little spring cleaning done and spending more time out in the garden. Isn't it nice to finally enjoy warm weather? I find myself looking for things to do outside because I don't want to come in!
Spring flowers fade away so quickly. The scilla have finished flowering and are quickly being replaced by grape hyacinths - definitely one of my favourites!
We've had a lot of rain this week and the garden has loved it. Unfortunately, so have the weeds. I spent the weekend pulling out some pretty big ones that weren't there a week ago. I'm hoping for a trip to the garden centre this week. I'm keeping the garden simple this year and just buying plants that are hardy and that the rabbits don't like (if that's at all possible). Every summer I fight a losing battle with the rabbits.
And the spring cleaning? It's been put on hold. I'd rather be in the garden! :)
