I have been aching in places I forgot that I had.....not because I am ill but because I have been gardening. Although I still have so much more to do, it is starting to look nice.....especially when the lawns are mown.
I do have to keep my eyes peeled for those wriggly sticks.....I haven't seen any yet but I do make sure that I make lots of noise and I have the radio playing rather loudly. But these fellows get my heart racing when I first catch a glimpse. This was the third one that I have interrupted over the last 2 days.
Before I head back out into the garden I thought that I would share a photo of the garden bed near the Classroom window. Last year a friend gave me some self sown seedlings of these annual delphiniums. They grew, set seed and then this Spring up they came. They just kept growing taller and taller......they weren't this big last year!
They are almost to the eaves, but they are way too pretty to chop off.....even though I have cornflowers and sweet peas hiding in there somewhere. I will be saving some seeds this year and relocating them to another part of the garden.
