That’s it I call it quits with the winter now and call time on all dark and dreary days. I am officially now craving sunshine and spring days
Spring is my very favourite month and normally around spring time I would be getting my garden ready with a good old spring clean! … Excuse the pun!
I love that one weekend a year that I get to go out and chop back all the dead and dying foliage to allow it room to breath and start to re-grow, ready for its new offerings, this in part is why I adore plants and shrubs that come back year on year. Seeing which plants survived another winter is exciting for me, sad maybe but it makes me happy to see that the extra pretty plant will be rejoining the ranks to keep my garden bright and cheerful.
The sense of satisfaction at cleaning the pots and awaiting the new bulbs and plants to take hold for me is an exciting time. However this year while waiting for major abdominal surgery I was physically not able to do my big garden spring clean just yet so opted for a lower level of gardening by tidying the few pots on the front and have added in some wild flowers this year instead.
A gentleman on another street a few years ago sprinkled some wild flower sachets on a strip of wasteland next to his house and each year when it comes through I love it.
I love the colours and textures of the differing flowers and so in the hopes it might detract away from the entire neighbourhood cat population from pooping in my flower pots on the front I am ready to try anything.
Normally my garden pots are planted in singles or threes and I get anxious at anything that doesn’t look neat so I am not sure how I will cope once the flowers are in bloom with the haphazard aspect but I am certainly willing to give it a go and who knows maybe I might try some on the back garden later in the year?
