Today we spent at home.
Sowing seeds of squashes, pumpkins, courgettes and cucumbers.
The boys decided to go on and water the garden - which is all in pots as our small yard is concrete. I try to bring some green in by growing ferns, trees, roses, tomatoes and strawberries all in pots and troughs.
Thank goodness we have an allotment!
Charlie enjoyed spraying the plants with the broken hose... Rufus obviously didn't enjoy it as much as his brother!!
They both enjoyed having a pyjama day though.... bliss.
We took a trip out of Bristol to Tytesfield Estate.
A picnic on the main lawn and a walk/bike ride around the estate.
I love the walled kitchen garden, so inspiring. They have already giant leeks and the broad bean plants are already knee high!
The eyelets in the wall always amaze me. And the fanned fruit trees, are so ancient their trunks at the base are at least a foot wide.
We took advantage of free entry for this weekend, so did everyone else!
Shame it was a cloudy day today.
Tomorrow is supposed to be sunnier.... off to the lottie for sowing, me thinks. I feel inspired!
Despite Ru feeling unwell today... the sun shone it's hardest through the window. Inticing me to step out into the garden for a few minutes (during Ru playing with the cooking set - hot chocolate and fried egg sandwiches were on the menu I think), and I made this.
I feel I achieved something today. A small step towards bigger gardening projects I think!
