It's been wet. Really wet. Wet and windy. But mild. The plants are pushing up through the soil, unfurling their leaves and there are flowers too. Only a few, but exciting nonetheless. The Anemones have self seeded in the grass, which I'm thrilled about. The staging in the greenhouse is about to collapse. It was given to me by a neighbour, but I think I may have to invest in some new ones. I have more seed to sow, and February through to March is the time to get it started under glass. The sweet peas are going well, as are the Snap Dragons. They are teeny tiny now. Hopefully they will be strong plants for the garden in a couple of months. I hope to grow a sweet pea screen this summer, and I have chosen heritage varieties which will pump out scent and provide me with loads of bedside posies.
