How clever are we?!?!
- WHAT A BEAUTY -
The weather was gorgeous and has enticed growth in the garden. When I wasn't being a "Very Important Person" - holding tacks, supporting shed walls, making tea for Bob the Builder - I was able to amble around the garden, snipping, digging, moving and shaping the recently awakened plants and shrubs into some sense of order. The Acer tree is magnificent and Gert loves to lie beneath it watching the comings and goings of the day. The May and Jade trees have erupted with blossom and look gorgeous. Everywhere I look there are signs of new life.
After much reshuffling I was left with a number of empty pots on the patio crying out for some friendly occupants and needing no better excuse I set out for the local garden centre. The criteria ... anything that grabbed my attention and looked pretty. And after an hour of bimbling around I came away with Cosmos, Saxifrage, Alyssum and Aquilegia. I also couldn't resist the sweet scents of Jasmine and Sweetpea, so they came home too!!
I have fallen in love with the garden all over again.
Our evenings were spent basking in the late sun and firing up our small but perfectly formed BBQ. After a day spent outside you can't beat a glass of chilled vino and the 'here-comes-the-sun' smell of burning charcoal. By flickering candle light we munched on ciabatta burgers and Greek salad ... delicious.
And I couldn't resist sharing my Easter gift from my goddaughter with you ....
However you spent it, I hope your Easter weekend was a good one xx
