NO TIME TO FRITTER

The weather's been quite gloomy again and I've been pretty busy with other things besides gardening; in fact the only chance I've had to get into the garden has been taking plants out to the greenhouse in the morning and bringing them back inside in the evening....boo hoo

.....I'll be glad when I feel the nights are warm enough to leave all my "babies" outside. That said it's a wonder I didn't trip up as all the time my eyes were darting right and left trying to spot if anything NEW had happened! Although it's not fully open I just had to take a quick photo of the Snakeskin Fritillaria....................
any excuse for a linger!

The local schools have all broken u for the Easter Holidays now and over the course of the last few weeks Manda has been telling me all about the paper mache bowls and Easter Cards that the children at the school that she works at have been making. It's been fun listening to the exploits of the children as they moulded the paper mache round balloons, the drying, the cutting, the painting etc. As the children had made some "extras" I was thrilled when she brought both a card and a bowl home for Mick and I....................

didn't the kids do a great job!

We have family visiting over the weekend but I'll try and fit in a little post when I can...and it sounds like the sunshine will be back next week....that'll be "blooming marvellous!"

I often wish we had a big greenhouse, too! ;-)))

The Easter card with with daffodil is wonderful. Yes, kids can be little artists!

By the way, I planted some fritillaria in autumn 2005, they bloomed last spring but seem to have disappeared this year... Or my they blossom later than the grape hyacinths?

Have a great Sunday! We will get wonderful weather tomorrow, yeah!

We have problems establishing them too Anita. I know they thrive better in a damp soil.

I love all your garden photos. And the kids did a great job on the bowl. I enjoyed your blogger's paradise holiday post, the gardens you visited look stunning. I'll recommend it to my parents as they enjoy gardening.
