Exquisite signs of spring..............
These little irises have just opened in the back garden - stunning. It was a lovely morning here - clear and bright, after a bit of frost overnight. It's clouded over now, though. I did get out and get the mistletoe berries on to the apple tree, and checked over the metal greenhouse, watering the first lot of sweetpeas. It won;t be long until the broad beans pepp through now either. I spent half an hour in the kitchen pricking out tomatoes - sadly, all the names have disappeared from the labels, it can't have been a permanent marker I used, so I'm not sure what is what now LOL I know which were the Gardener's Delights, though, so that's something at least. I'm sure they'll taste just as good if I don't know their names.
We steadied the beehive yesterday too - it was leaning precariously to the left - one careless knock from the wing of a gander and the whole lot would have literally gone flying. It's more scure now on a sturdy level paving slab. I was pleased to see them out and flying in the early spring sunshine this morning - a sight for sore eyes, and a lovely sound.
