Thank you for all the lovely birthday messages yesterday. I felt like Queen for the day! Today was another glorious day so I took some time out to spend in the garden. I potted up some Sage, Rosemary and Thyme.
I am looking forward to using the herbs using Karon's book for guidance.
I saw this unusual ladybird on the blueberry bush. Not often that you see a black ladybird with red spots!
I then noticed the more usual red ladybird with black spots nestling in last years hanging basket.
The Victoria plum tree is in blossom. I look forward to many plums!
I finally potted up some Primulas that I had neglected in their tiny shop bought containers. Hopefully they will thrive in their new containers until I decide where to put them in the garden.
The Pieris is blooming beautifully. The bees love it so much.
Here is a close up of the delicate flowers.
After all that pottering I need a slice of home made birthday cake, filled with butter cream and home made lemon curd, topped with a crunchy lemon drizzle icing. I think I need to get digging in the garden tomorrow to work off all those extra calories. I hope the sun shines for you all this weekend.
