Now the super cold weather has finally passed – fingers crossed – I decided to refill my pots by the front door. They were as you can see pretty dead
Classy or what?
So I went to the market, bought lots of pretties for a fiver. Got home realised that the lavenders were indeed now super dead and throwing water at them probably wasn’t going to work this year, so headed out to the garden centre to buy some lavenders and a big bag of compost. But they also had lots of gorgeous spring flowers, including violets – I may have gone a bit mad but I have missed colour so! And you know I have a garden, so they could go out there too……any excuse!
An hour later my posts were transformed and now look like this
And these little Violet beauties were planted in the back garden so I can see them from the kitchen window, they smell as divine as they look.
Only a few more weeks and I can start planning my veggie raised beds. Here’s hoping that bitter cold weather has passed, and Spring is here!
