Well I got a taste of that excitment again on Friday, when the courier delivered our order from Johnstown Garden centre. I couldnt wait to open the boxes :
Heres a snippet of the ones that are in bloom already:
|The tiny flowers of Achillea paprika|
|The beautiful Geum koi|

Now if only we could get our order of old scaffolding planks so we can finish making up our raised beds..........by the time we get them done it will be too late to plant our winter veg!
Its tough starting out, we have to keep reminding ourselves that patience is a virtue and this time next year we will be far better organised than we are this year.
But for now lets hope for a bit more dry weather so at least we can have some colour for the next few months.
