I'm in the garden

I always look forward to the long Easter weekend as it gives me a chance to do some work in the garden.  Today I’m planning to get my onion sets planted along with some new Dahlia tubers that I bought to add to the collection that I already have in my allotment.  Last year seemed to be a bumper year and I managed to cut lots of flowers to bring indoors.  I must admit I love Dahlias and I always aspired to grow them like my mum used to in the garden of the house where I grew up. I have a very clear recollection of her cutting a few stems and wrapping them for me to take to school for my teacher.  I can only think that it would have been at the beginning of the new school year as they are usually ready to harvest in the Autumn.

This year I have chosen two new varieties to add to these lovely reds, purples and whites.  I have chosen Edge of Joy and Blue Bayou.

I’m just hoping for some fine weather now to spend outdoors.  Happy Easter!
