My sort of Sunday afternoon

We have been out in the garden trying to catch up with what needs to be done.
The damson tree is full of blossom. The other tree is an amelanchier, which we call The Pigeon Berry tree as they love the berries.
 

Little pots still flowering and the veg patch dug and ready to plant
 
My pretty pink primroses and cowslips


And where did this come from??? I didn't plant it but isn't it a pretty colour? As soon as we get this centre bed under control I shall spilt this and plant it in other places in the garden.

And this the beautiful camellia that my DD gave me for my birthday last year. The photo doesn't do it justice as it is the palest of pinks with the petals edged with a deeper pink.

 
So in a another week or two I will have weeded all the garden. The green house is full of plants and so is my kitchen window sill.. Last year I gave away tomato, squash, courgette and some flower  plants and I will be doing the same this year too..I just can't throw away seedlings when I am thinning out!

First thing this morning I opened my Mother's day cards which were beautiful and I have a lovely bouquet of flowers from #1DS.. DD has phoned, nice to talk to your children even when they are parents too!

Happy Gardening all.  It has been a wonderful rewarding afternoon for me, spring has definitely arrived here.

 
This little fellow was hiding behind our compost box.. he ran off so hope he won't come back!!

You are having an earlier spring than we have had so far. But it appears to be changing now. Lorne raked up the front lawn and put down some soil and seeds in spots so it will look good. Other than that, we haven't done much because of all the rain. Right now we're into the final stages of planning our wedding May 1st so lots of excitement coming. Love your garden!
