No I'm not spreading weed killer about; this ROUND UP is just to catch up on all the things that had been happening last week that I never got around to putting in my blog posts. Quite a few photos but not too much to read....
the coffee's brewing so settle down and have a look
The little bit of sunshine we had during the week has crept down the garden far enough so that some of the crocuses are opening.
We have a new duck family on our pond since we went into town.
Amaryllis bulbs were going cheap so I couldn't resist buying a couple. They are nice and firm and a good size.
I've potted them up leaving about 1/3 of their bulb showing above the compost.
My "Swiss army" secateurs that I got for Christmas are invaluable for indoor houseplant gardening.
The Alpine strawberry seeds, that were contained in what looked like a match book, have started to germinate.
Jack-in-the-pulpit is coming through well in the garden.
Various tulips all over the garden and in pots are peeking out of the soil.
The Osteospurnum cuttings I potted up are looking well.
Time for another cuppa I reckon
and maybe a biscuit?
I've printed out a few of my sky photos so that we have a change of pictures on our walls.
The second flower stem of the "forgotten" Amaryllis is ready to bloom.
The pink Hellabores are now in flower. Still waiting for the bud to open on my seedling one but I think it's going to be quite dark.
The cress is ready for some "egg and cress" sandwiches.
The "Great Pip Challenge" orange seedlings are still alive.
One of the Bletilla bulbs I planted on Valentine's Day is already shooting.
UNBELIEVABLY there is a shoot on the Avocado stone I planted for "The Great Pip Challenge"
Well that's about it. Just leave your empty cup on the side; I'll wash it up later; oh and take that last biscuit if you like; it will give you the energy to pop over to There Are A Million Stories; every comment you leave will raise 50p for a cause close to my heart..........and all it will cost you is a few minutes of your time..
P.S. I am having a lot of computer problems at the moment so if I suddenly disappear one day...........I'LL BE BACK!
