Hope everyone had a lovely weekend and a Happy Mothers Day.
I did get my lie in (til 8 anyway, but that was great!) and I was also treated to breakfast in bed by my daughter, which was a real luxury!!!
Not only was I lucky enough to have breakfast in bed, but she also gave me these lovely Margeurites, as she didn't miss the signs that I was thinking about some myself when we bought one to plant in the barrel for my Mum!
I think my words were "a pair of those would look lovely either side of the back door" and voila! My wish came true!!
Just need to find another terracotta pot!
Weather was sunny here on Sunday, and despite a bit of a chilly breeze we managed to coax our guests into the garden for the first big family lunch of the year!
There were 11 of us in all ranging from age 2 to 79, and we had great fun, especially with Logan.
Yesterday I was overjoyed (oh yes!!) to find the first tomato seedlings appearing at last!!!
Can you see that little white hooky thing!!!!
In fact there's two!!
I say at last, but it was really only just over a week ago I sowed them, but I have been anxiously checking the greenhouse for signs of life at least 5 times a day since I sowed them!!!!
Was fearing we would only get flowers, as out of the various seeds sown last weekend up until yesterday only some Clarkia
Also spotted signs of life from the peas
which I thought I would try starting early(ish) in the greenhouse, just because I can ;0
Am loving this greenhouse lark!!!
Also signs of life from a clematis - am hoping its a montana as I have never had one for more than one season, they always used to die in my old garden, and I do love them.
If this is one, it looks as if it will be over the arch and along the pergola at the back of the garden, so should look very pretty when its flowering.
The vine on the same pergola and arch is also showing signs of life
and this pretty plant in the pond is flowering with beautiful buttercup yellow flowers - there are two of these in the pond.
The next few days are supposed to be warm and sunny so am looking forward to getting a few jobs done in the garden.
So on with the chores and sewing today, as they will be neglected for the next few days!
Not that I often get a chance to make our bed as it is usally occupied during the morning
Have a great day!
