An evening sky and gardening this week



We've had some unusual evening skies this week.  One evening there was an unearthly yellow light and looking out at the sky there looked like a storm brewing up. Apparently it was an infrequent cloud formation that some photographers had recorded.  On Friday evening the sky had a rosy glow.

Last Saturday we went to the local garden centre with our daughter as she wanted to get some bedding plants to brighten up the garden and choose some others that we could put in pots and hanging baskets. There were plenty of plants displayed at our garden centre to inspire us.


We bought daisies, pansies and saxifrage to supplement the spring flowers.
It's been a busy gardening week for my husband tending the vegetables in pots. The flower beds had to be dug over between the existing plants and the grass needed cutting. Now the garden looks tidy and if the weather improves there will be more to do in the allotment.

  1. Oh I love seeing your garden preparations. My husband has been trying to clean up our garden in between not feeling well. I will try to help him next week. Everything is just growing so fast now.

  2. With the spring being so late we have had a bit of a reprieve from clearing up and weeding, but now everything is
    full on.
    I love it when the lawn gets its first cut and then the fresh new green shoots appear making the lawn appear like a fitted carpet - the garden suddenly looks like it should.
    Lots of lovely plants in your garden, it is such a pleasure to watch them develop during the summer.

  4. We've been sorting out the garden a bit too, it's usually done by now but we seem so late with everything this year. I love the daffodil in your first collage, such a pretty colour. Your tomato plants are growing well, mine are just tiny things still sitting on a windowsill. Have a good weekend.

  6. You have some wonderful colour in your garden, we gave the lawns their first cut this week but appart from a few pansies in pots, and a few spring flowers here and there we have very little colour as yet:)

  7. Gosh you've been busy and your garden is already looking gorgeous, Linda. I must start getting ours into a bit more order, but it's been so cold, even while other places have been much warmer. I love the sunset sky. :-)
