A Weekend in the Garden

With the Coronavirus lockdown in full effect, time outside has been limited. Actually, that’s not entirely true as we are allowed out into our gardens. Time off the premises however is limited to once a day for exercise, or for trips to the shop for essentials. I’ve been getting out for my daily exercise of...

Summer House 1

Westbury Mill Water Gardens

We like to stop off on the way home from my parents and generally do so at a garden centre. It gives us chance to maybe buy some plants or other things and have some lunch. It also breaks the journey up a little so that we aren’t driving non-stop for 3½ hours. The trouble...

Running, Surfing, Sky’s Garden Nursery & Bike Riding – Bank Holiday Fun from Ynyslas

Autumn in the Garden

The temperatures are dropping, the nights are getting longer and things are coming to an end in the garden. The courgettes are still going but aren’t producing at the rate they were. There’s still plenty of flowers out but it’s time to start tidying things up and preparing for the winter. I cut back lots of...

The longest day has been and gone and the garden is growing well. I thought I’d share a few longest day photos from the garden with you. The veg in the new raised bed is now growing well. As always when you first plant them out there seems to be huge amounts of space in...

Water Feature in the Garden 2

Weekend Warriors

Another packed weekend for us with plenty to do, both recreationally and in the garden. It turned out quite productive though. A Morning Washout Saturday was a complete washout in the morning with dark skies and pouring rain, so after my usual chores and some work on the computer I jumped on the turbo trainer...

Growth in the Garden – A Purple Patch

Weather Records We had a couple of scorchers over the weekend with temperatures even at Ynyslas reaching 25°C, the hottest so far this year. Here’s the temperature records from the Borth & Ynyslas Weather Station: As you can see, we are still a long way off the all time record, but the summer is yet to...

Garden Control

Another day with Anna at work at the weekend so no running along the Coast path for me, but at least it wasn’t raining so I was able to be a little productive and spent all day in the garden trying to get it under control. Morgan helped out for a little while as well,...
