Anticipating Spring

Where does the time go?  The anniversary of this blog passed unnoticed and here we are in mid-March already.  I’ve decided to blame the weather (that and other demands on my weekends) because I’ve barely  set foot in the garden, and as for the allotment – well I pass it twice a day,to and from the station, but otherwise it is as I left it at the start of winter.

However, I remain positive – as a gardener you have to be.  I have sweet peas in the shed (note to self – must check and see if they’ve germinated), seeds waiting patiently in their packets to be sown, dahlia tubers in the cupboard under the stairs and assorted summer flowering bulbs in a box by my desk as I write this.  Not to mention five sacks of potting compost and three of garden compost sitting in the garden.  This coming week I have taken three days off work with the sole purpose of working in the garden and on the allotment, and I’m determined that unless it continues to rain until Wednesday morning I will be working outdoors in some way or another, there is so much to be done.

So fingers crossed that by the next time I post I will have some meaningful progress to report, and more importantly, the weather will have turned more Springlike!

About Sara Davison

I've been gardening as long as I can remember; initially as a child, learning from my mother, and then with each successive garden I've owned, I've expanded my knowledge and my plant collection. Starting Spring 2014 I'm taking my first steps as a flower farmer, growing British flowers for cutting on an acre of rented farmland in the Surrey Hills.

    I’m always amazed by the fact that the sun always seems to shine in the week when it knows I am chained to a desk and at weekends there is snow, hail, rain and arctic winds… or maybe it just feels that way! Good luck with your time off and congratulations on your blogiversary x

  3. Hope you get some fine, dry weather on your days off – it’s so frustrating when the rain makes things impossible in the garden, but I guess we should be used to it by now!
