ON A SUNNY SUNDAY

The nice sunny Spring weather is continuing with now and then a good  soft shower, so perfect for growing plants. I started to give my plants coffee, yes coffee, it seems coffee is just as good as fertilizer and plants love it, also your indoor plants so I keep all my coffee grounds, mix them with a lot of water and pour it on the ground under my shrubs and plants. I have only just begun so I can’t tell you yet how my plants react to it but I’ll keep you up to date.

I took some pictures for you from the garden a moment ago.

AND MY WHITE HEATHER IS STILL BLOOMING, IT IS A PLANT YOU HAVE TO SEE UP CLOSE AS THE TINY FLOWERS ARE REALLY PRETTY !!! AND AN  EARLY ATTRACTION FOR THE BEE’S AS WELL.

I HOPE YOU ARE ALL ENJOYING YOUR GARDENS, SPRING OR AUTUMN, DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU LIVE. HAVE A GREAT WEEK AND THANKS FOR VISITING.

WHAT’S IN BLOOM IN MY GARDEN TODAY

Not much but it is a start. We had a long cold and wet Winter and it is not over yet but plants are starting to grow, buds are getting bigger, unfortunately weather forecasters say we are not going to get nice Springweather for at least a forthnight. I hope they are sooo wrong about that !!!

I have only 2  bloomers at the moment.
