Celandines and Bluebells
Daisies and Dandelions
Even the sky is carpeted with the colour of the blossoms
This weekend we spent some time in the garden sowing seeds, planting on seedlings, planting out seedlings and plants.
Transplanting Tomato seedlings
Just a few of the other seedlings!
Some time was also spent at the allotment weeding, raising beds, sowing carrot seeds, harvesting kale and dividing welsh onion clumps and another clump forming onion I was given by a wonderful permaculture teacher. Some of the onions have now been planted in the garden at home for easy harvesting. Both the welsh and minogues onions are doing well spreading around, perennial onions and lovely with it.

Here are our lovely fruit blossoms, promises of lovely fruits for the Summer time. The first picture is of a Bramley Apple tree that was once in our garden but not doing very well - getting mold in it's damp spot so we took the plunge of moving it to the allotment knowing we may kill it, which would be a shame for a 50+ year old tree! It was planted in the garden when the house was built (local neighbours knowledge!). It's coming back lovely and looking good so far.

More seeds sowing and transplanting going on, I'm going to create a page on the blog with what's happening, a kind of sowing record.
