What a beautiful day to be outside! It may be a bit chilly and there was a frost this morning, but the sunshine is just such a treat!
Started my morning huddled in the man cave sieving some more compost for sowing seeds as I had completely ran out again.
Once done, I sowed some more ANTIRRHINUM ‘Liberty Classic, ANTIRRHINUM ‘Tom Thumb’ and my first tray of the year of PANSY ‘Giant Fancy Mix’.
A wander up to the tunnel gave me the chance to check on the growth of some of the plants which I potted up last week.
The growth on some of the varieties is remarkable!
The HEMEROCALLIS ‘Highland Lord’ are all sprouting shoots (although this isn’t really surprising as the ones I have in the pots in the garden are already 6 inches tall!)
The PAPAVER ‘Miss Piggy’ have got lovely thick green leaves, already at least 3 cm tall.
The EUPHORBIA ‘Fire Glow’ are looking beautifully lush and green with shoots also about 3 -4 cm tall.
And finally, the PHLOX ‘Paniculata Mix’ are just breaking through the surface.
And then I started digging!
I wanted to see just how low the level of the new lawn was going to be. These photos don’t do the job needing to be done justice, but it’s looking like I am going to have to dig down by about 2 feet at the top of the slope!
These pictures are at the front of the garden (flattest part) and this area needs to go down by 6 inches as it is!
