In the Spring sunshine


Planting up containers

The warm spring sunshine inspires gardening doesn’t it?  I’ve been out with fork and trowel, proddling the soil and planting up little stone pots (partly in readiness for Scampston Spring Plant Fair) to give fresh, pretty colours to celebrate the change of seasons.  I like the textures the optimistic new growth bring to the senses.

This morning I’m wondering if my plantering wasn’t a bit premature – as it is white with a deep frost!  Poor froggy.

    nice that you can work outside. I work in a shop but have the 2 big bay doors open so I get to see the sun and hear the birds.

      Makes a difference, all that fresh air and birdsong – do you find it helps with making things – I do

    It’s been to cold to work out side to day, but I have been sewing..curtains puled way back, window open a little and when the sun did shine and cast a shadow round the room , the light was wonderful.

      I’ve now got such a picture of you at work in a shaft of sunlight and fresh spring air – hope the sewing went well
