It’s amazing the difference a little bit of sunshine makes. We’ve just had a lovely weekend, chilly mornings due to the clear skies,but lots of sunshine. I managed a couple of hours tidying up in the garden in between glossing skirting boards!
I finally got round to trimming the membrane underneath the pebbles in my planter corner, I’ve sorted my pots a bit too, I can’t arrange the properly yet as next-door still need access to that corner, but at least I’ve got a nice view from our arbour for my morning cup of coffee.
The rose tree that grows over the arbour is just coming into leaf, they’re a beautiful shade of red, especially with the sun behind them.
I moved Hubert the Heron back to his place overlooking the pond. We usually move him a bit nearer the house for the winter as the back is quite exposed with a gate to a footpath, but everything will soon be greening up.
Daphne the Duck has a new place too by the daffodils. I made all these wire sculptures at workshops run by Susan Nichols, some were through the WI, others I went to her workshop in Fridaythorpe, I’ve made a goose and a chicken too. I rather fancy making an owl next to sit on top of my obelisk.
The trees are just starting to come into leaf, in the sunshine you could just see a shimmer of new leaves at the top of the trees, really pretty. It won’t be long before it’s all green again.
Hopefully we’ll have a few dry days now so I can get out into the garden a bit in between decorating jobs!
