GARDENING TRUMPS BLOG!

Goodness , I have no idea where the time goes. It is already Friday Saturday! This week there was so much to do in the garden. The pruning of ‘Annabelle’ hydrangeas & Hydrangea paniculata, along with some Clematis… Still not done with all the ‘Annabelles.’ Every year I have the same lament. When I am pruning I have too many….when they bloom there are not enough!!

                                                                                           

Much weeding in the potager where I am growing salad ….delicious! A few stragglers from last years tulips popping up between the lettuce… and much weeding ….

                                                                                           

                                                                                                                                                                          

 Spring is going forward at breakneck speed, it seems. Viburnum burkwoodii in bloom. If I could share the fragrance, you would know why it is so cherished among gardeners.

                                                                                           

It does get  large, with a beautiful vase shape. There are several Clematis planted at its feet. Reminders of a lovely day, shared with dear friends, in a beautiful garden.

                                                                                          

The new kitty is at the vets with serious upper respiratory infection…….

ALMOST ROADKILL!

Look who I rescued today.

                                                                                             

There she was…. sauntering across the highway.

                                                                                          

Unaware of the danger, she was almost roadkill!!

 She will live in the ( just being built ) Bothy.

We are converting the old chicken coop………

                                                                                                       

still under construction, but I love it already!

                                                                                               

Shelves need to be added along with a comfortable armchair… tattered of course, and tea making facilities.  To be continued.

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY
