A Spot of Gardening

It seems that Spring is springing into action at the moment doesn’t it? We have had some lovely sunny days and some have actually been really quite warm too which makes a lovely change. Saturday was one of those days, and with the sun shining, Monkey’s Chicken Pox clearing up and some bluebells to plant from Hub’s Dad we spent some time enjoying the sunshine in the back garden.

Monkey loves a good dig in the mud and Daddy likes to put him to work… though unfortunately he always ends up targeting plants rather than weeds and there is one that we are hoping has survived being attacked by Monkey’s trowel…

While Hubs and Monkey were planting I was doing a bit of pruning, dead heading and leaf raking that we didn’t get round to in the autumn (we aren’t the best gardeners in the world!) and enjoying the signs of spring.Β The crocuses and daffodils blooming in the front garden..


and the buds on one of our new trees (we got these in the sale in August, already marked down to Β£15 which we thought was a bargain they actually only cost about Β£8 each), this one looks like it is going to be beautiul once it is in bloom!


Then we had a lovely moment watching some Bees collecting Nectar from the crocuses talking about how Bees make Honey, was very cute!


With yet another week of illness (my turn now) I am hoping that Spring will bring some better health along with the sunnier weather so this week my word is Spring.

  1. Monkey looks like he is having a wonderful time helping in the garden and I love your photo of the crocuses – so pretty. Hope the plants survived Monkey’s enthusiastic digging! πŸ™‚

  2. It’s so lovely to have some warmish weather back isn’t it? Really gets everyone motivated to head out in the garden and get planting!.
    And I am showing my husband this post so he can see it is possible to garden without showing a builders bum in the process !

    Thanks for joining in again lovely x

    • Haha this really made me laugh Annie! I have to admit I did check this shot to ensure there was no builders bum visible hehe it is lovely to get out there again in the spring so thank you for hosting this lovely linky πŸ™‚ xx

  3. Aww lovely photos! Your garden looks great! Monkey looks like he’s having fun (daddy too). I also am really looking forward to warmer weather! It’s so bright and happy! Hope you feel better soon too. One after another eh? ️Xx #wotw

  4. It’s definitely springing into spring isn’t it, and isn’t it welcome? Those crocuses are beautiful, and I wouldn’t worry about not getting everything done – I think even if I could garden as much as I wanted to in a week, there’d always be something else to do so now I accept that’s how it is! πŸ™‚ #hdygg

  5. I’m hoping to get out for the day in our garden tomorrow and get it spruced up ready for spring. I do hope it is just round the corner now, and I hope you’re feeling better soon x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

  6. This is the time to be out enjoying the garden, I love how the new growth is coming through and the spring flowers here on the farm. Weeds and plants are all very confusing at Monkey’s age but great to have him out with you. Thank you for sharing your lovely gardening photos on Country Kids.

Thanks for taking the time to write something. I love comments and read every one xx
