Sunny Sunday in the Garden

It is thee most beautiful day here today, the sun is shining and my garden is looking lovely, the tulips have finally emerged and they are a gorgeous purple colour..

I have quite a few dandelions kicking around too.. but have left them growing on purpose as they will provide the rabbits and chickens with some greenage 🙂

There is a mound of chives at the top end of the garden and they are just about to burst into flower..

and finally the welcome sign on the outside of my craft workshop 🙂

I’m heading back into the garden now to cut the grass and sow a few herbs, chillies and flower seeds in the greenhouse 🙂

Its Springtime…

It is a beautiful spring day here today, I was up bright and early this morning!

I cleaned the kitchen, put on several loads of washing and hung them all out on the line as there is a lovely fresh spring breeze blowing, perfect drying weather.

I have cleaned out Brenda and chicken Little (the chickens).

I also cleaned out Harry and Tweed the bunnies, I always take brenda in with me she likes to hang out with the rabbits 😉

I also took a few pictures from around the garden.. oh and made Nigella Lawson’s Lemon Madeira Cake …

Here’s some of the pictures from this morning 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend everyone x

I planted this rowan tree as a stick 14 years ago, I bought it when my daughter was in Primary One!

When we were out and about today I stopped & rolled down the car window to take this picture.

It caught my eye immediately and I think its absolutely gorgeous, the sloping hill in the distance with the trees and little stone dyke right through to the big clump of daffodils underneath the fence to the foreground.

🙂 Spring has sprung …
