Spring is Here

No doubt it won’t last long, but it feels as though Spring is here. The skylarks are singing, there is a definite dawn chorus and I even saw my shadow whilst walking back from the beach, which means the sun must be out. What’s more, I mowed the lawn at the weekend as well. I’ve...

Mole Hills from Space and Robots in the Garden

Now, if that’s not the title of an epically bad Sci-Fi film I don’t know what is! It’s not though, it’s the latest news from our little garden here on the windswept coast of Wales. Mole Hills from Space! I probably don’t complain about the mole hills too much here. I should as they are...

Enjoying the Lockdown Sunshine

We’re still quite enjoying the lockdown. The weather has been lovely most of the time, the garden is looking good and we’re quite happy at Ynyslas. We haven’t been anywhere else for nearly two months now but we love it here so it’s no big deal. We’re still busy working of course but there has...

Flowers Everywhere

There are quite a few flowers in the garden at the moment. The bees are loving the chives still and there’s even a surprise rose. I don’t know why it’s always a surprise as it flowers every year but I also do nothing to it and kind of forget that it is there until it...

And so the Garden Grows

Just a quick update from the garden seeing as it is in fine form at the moment. It’s still dominated by the pinks and purples of Aliums, Irises, Aquilegias, Chives and Foxgloves, but the blues of the Forget-me-Knots and Bluebells are now fading. It won’t be long before yellows and oranges take over once again...

Chives, Loads of Aquilegia’s in pinks and purples, purple geraniums, purple aliums and even deep purple leaves on a few shrubs. What’s more,...

More Days in Lockdown

Self-Isolation The Coronavirus lockdown continues. Anna has now had a letter for the Welsh Health Authorities to say that she in in a higher risk category and should therefore be ‘properly’ self-isolating for 12 weeks. That means not leaving the house for anything and either making sure the others in her household are also isolating...

Garden Retreat

At least we are still allowed out into our garden during the Coronavirus lockdown. The weather has been pretty good for it too. 9 days without rain and counting means that the floodwaters have receded and I’ve been able to do a bit of tidying up out there. Hedges and taller shrubs have been cut...

Self-Isolating in the Garden

You saw my attempts at social distancing yesterday with a nice surf-ski paddle on the sea miles from anyone. Luckily we can self-isolate in the garden too. It was feeling quite Spring-like out there over the weekend. The sun was shining, I mowed the lawn for the first time this year and there was quite...

Garden Photos and Bees in May

As it’s such a nice day I just couldn’t resist lunch in the garden. Not the best time of day for photos but here are a few photos from the garden anyway. The bees were certainly busy. Not just our honey bees but all sorts of other bees too. It’s always nice to see the...
