May in my garden 

by Wendy Syddall

What a lovely sunny and windy day for working in the garden, 22 miles per hour wind speed – Daddy is very interested in tracking our weather! 

But I have lots of sweet peas to plant and according to Monty Don from Gardeners World I should have already done this job. I couldn’t decide between pink or white so bought a pot of each and ended up with 30 plants. I then ordered a support frame online and when it came it was a kit of bits, not what I was expecting at all. Anyway, Daddy has got it in the ground, replacing the Acer tree that died last year, he did use his industrial strength drill to get through the roots. I also put some in a large pot and have the pink ones still to plant and a few to give to friends. I have also spread many slug pellets as I really don’t want them eating.

A few pictures of what’s flowering in my garden to finish and I’m slightly spoiled for choice as the garden is full of flower – especially forget me nots which self seed and my neighbour keeps forgetting the name of!

An amazing smelling lilac bush which has been in the garden for years. Mum threatened it with being dug out recently and I have been talking to it and encouraging it to flower and guess what it has!
