Fed the calves and spent the rest of the day pulling weeds from the herbaceous borders, did some very late soft pruning... tidied up the glasshouse and tended to new seedlings...

Did some gentle tying in, pruning,weeding and potting on yesterday. Delighted to see my wild garlic seeds have germinated - they will need potting on in a few weeks.
Currently sitting in Belfast City Airport waiting for a plane to Amsterdam. The Keuchenhof Gardens have been on my bucket list for years - soon i will be crossing them off. 😃

Have a lovely time GG. The Keuchenhof Gardens are beautiful. Hopefully the tulips are not to far over. When we went they were at their best and was just one big splash of colour. The bulb sales I found quite expensive but I thought blow it you only do it once. That's where I saw the highly perfumed Vibernham each side of the doors, and fell in love with it. So much so I bought one when I got back to UK. It now takes pride of place in my garden and is as big as me. Enjoy.

Have a great TIme GG. I've just worked out, it's 40 years since I visited the Keuchenhof Gardens! Shocked

It was our school's Centenary and they shipped eight coach loads of us off to Holland by way of celebration (we still found our way back! Laughing Laughing )

For me it was the highlight of the whole trip. I was totally in awe. I just remember blocks of colour from the tulips and mind-boggling perfume from the hyacinths.

Oooh, I'm so jealous!

Thankyou, ladies, for your best wishes. This morning it is the Van Gogh Museum, followed by exploring - it is 27 years since i was here with a group of 52 students. The Keuchenhof trip is on Thursday, which happens to be my birthday.
And now for breakfast.........

Nothing too exciting - I moved first 3 tomato plants out to the greenhouse earlier today. They just got too big for the windowsill... I hope they won't get too upset.

Planted out some seedling red cabbage and sprouts that I bought yesterday. I know growing from seed would be cheaper, but for the few that we eat and the number of seedlings that don't make it, this is easier.

We may be getting the trees felled next Tuesday - I'll believe it when I see it - this has been going on for long enough! It is going to seem very bare for a while so I asked the guy if he could leave two of the biggest trees as 10'-12' 'posts'. They both have quite a bit of ivy on them. I'm thinking they will add a bit of 'bulk' and provide nest sites until the smaller trees grow.

I'll post piccies when it happens.

I'm having a good clean around the house as I am aiming to do NOTHING tomorrow. Very Happy Bit of a surprise - as I type this we are minus one and a half trees. Tree man should have started Tuesday. But he decided to try and get the job done this week. Suits me! These trees have more than doubled in height since we moved here, slowly closing in on us. It's going to be a bit of a shock to the system.

Finally feel we are making progress.

Oh, and I have had to order a new pump for the pond. Thought the problem was a blocked filter, nope. We have tried back-flushing and everything, but the stream is down to a trickle and the pump is a sealed unit (of COURSE it is Rolling Eyes ) Serves us right for buying an unbranded pump.
