The Fortnight Garden at Easter

This is indeed a weekend for reflection and contemplation and in The Fortnight Garden at Easter there is also time and space for yet more hard work. The lesson, which sadly I seem to have to relearn rather often is that it would be better to garden for an hour or so a day than not at all! So here are my Six on Saturday.

The Fortnight Garden at the beginning of April

What a mess! This little patch hasn’t had any attention at all for nearly three months and it shows! Nevertheless it has been getting on growing as best it can, and so here are my Six on Saturday in The Fortnight Garden at the beginning of April. My plan for the next weeks was a lot of vigorous gardening but a slippage in my lower back has put that plan on hold. At least I can still hold the camera!

The City Garden at the end of February

Here we are in the City Garden at the end of February and I have been totally silent for quite a while! I have, however, been busy with several other activities – a short IT course, a few tailoring lessons, and a photography exhibition. I have told myself it isn’t gardening weather but just recently I have managed an hour or two and so here I am with my Six on Saturday!

The City Garden on a wet Saturday

It has been a busy week followed by a grey and wet Saturday which was not conducive to gardening. However, there was a little window in the wind and rain and I popped out for an hour in the City Garden on a wet Saturday to find Six on Saturday. Unlike The Propagator my bulbs are still looking accusingly at me – next week!

Quinces & more in The Fortnight Garden

Cold, wet, windy, grey – thoroughly miserable and definitely not a day to be outside, which is a pity because there is plenty to do. After some weeks away the garden is looking good, but untidy! I am going to share my quinces and more from the Fortnight Garden this week.

Six challenges in The City Garden

Well, you have to pay for pleasure and after enjoying the sunshine and bright colours of Northern Spain I have returned to a messy, sombre garden in London. It could be worse – the gardens could be dry and dead! Nevertheless I have six challenges in the City Garden this week.
