Slow Awakening

By Alternativeeden @markngaz

Just had our first decent weather weekend this spring. So good that it feels like summer already! With the weather being rather unpredictable in this country it could well be 'the' summer of 2016 but we're hoping that won't be the case...

Slow Awakening

Blue skies and warm weather, bliss!

Anyhow, with so many commitments work wise for the both of us it has been a slow awakening for both us and the garden. Nevertheless, better late than never and we took advantage of the fine weather by going into full swing preparing the garden for the growing season ahead. We have so much to catch up on!

We're behind with tidying up but pace is now ramping up

It is notable that the growing season here is rather behind compared to the other side of the pond of similar climate (yes we were still reading blogs despite our absence recently). Speaking of slow awakening, we were away two weeks ago and during that period apparently there was snowfall and the temperatures dipped during the evening, hence spring growth slowed down. It suited us fine though, the last thing we wanted was a warm spell whilst we were away. It was only last week really when the weather turned better and by Friday it has turned into full spring mode.

Jet wash time!

The newest addition to our cat brood, Cotton has started to spend time out in the garden with us

Such a wonderful weekend, shame it had to end. But there's more to look forward! Mark :-)
