I was just about to share Six things from the Garden on Saturday, with the Propagator and his gardening gang, when I noticed this, from another of my favourite garden blogs, Creating my own garden of the Hesperides
Chloris at The Blooming Garden writes a monthly roundup of the best things in her garden in any given month and has decided to make the day the 23rd of each month so that others may join her.
So, as there’s a lot going on this month, I thought I’d do a top ten garden things for March…
- Snapdragons – they’re not snappy, and they’re not dragons, but I do love these colours. I grew these from seeds planted two years back, so I’m especially chuffed with them.
- Snapdragons, narcissi, dogwood, bay, rosemary and hebe in a vase on a wet afternoon…
- Spring blooms – the garden is alive with colour, with forget me nots, daffodils and celandines brightening up the borders.
- Spring posies. Excuse the fuzziness of this snap, it was 6pm when I took this snap, and I was still out cutting flowers … Hurrah for the longer evenings and the start of spring.
- Spring posies: I’ve made lots of posies of spring blooms this week, I’m enjoying the variety and colour that’s starting to emerge from the garden.
- FromeBlooms – I’ve refreshed my gardening blog, and opened an etsy shop to sell bouquets and vases. It’s still a work in progress, but it’s coming along…
- Tree Day – last weekend, I spent time with Shared Earth Learning and Frome Tree Group, and planted some native species trees. I made video of the day, which Frome Town Council said was ‘great.’ (smugface 🙂
- Shared Earth Learning – the friendly co-operative that aims to nurture a love of nature, and worked to organise Tree Day, they are top of my list of likes at FromeBlooms.com and I’m volunteering with their admin and social marketing – which is brilliant fun.
- Blossom is everywhere – as I sit at the sofa, this is my view of the living room, which is a most pleasing spring feeling.
- Spider babies: I finally got round to making up this little planter for spider plant babies, using crystal soil and a vintage tealight holder to make a quirky bedside planter. I’d had this in mind for many months, so finally getting it done felt like winning. 🙂So, as I usually say, I hope your plans and plants are coming along nicely. And I hope your top ten garden things this March are sunny and bright.
