Spring and all is going well, let's hope it continues.

Been meaning for all of last week to get in and add some words to the pictures posted last week, where has the time gone . The weeks are flying by and finding time to get everything in seems to be impossible.

Hydrangaes are coming back nicely, gave then a little clip and tidying up a fornight ago.

My lupins are really beginning to fill out, hopefully a sign of things to come.

The lilly's are coming on strong, suppose I should have thinned them out this year but now it will have to wait till next year. Have got nice displays over the past 2 years from these.

All is going well in the greenhouse, not as many seeds as I have done for the past 2 years as I'm oly doing my daughters garden this year, my own will follow next year.

Marigolds are so easy.

Red cabbage plants no bother again this year and they were absolutely lovely last year.

Peas not a bother either, so hopefully we'll have a good crop again.
Today I planted the spuds in a raised bed. Tightened up the recomended spacings to get more in, so we'll have to see what happens.

Pictures tell a thousand words?! Your marigolds are huge compared to mine Liam.

Peggy, have been meaning to get around to filling in the blanks for most of last week but between one think and another am just about to do it now. I've semed to have great success with marigolds above everything else, don't know why that is but I'll accept the mystery. came across another cork blogger on the Irish forum lately, very interesting to note he is also from Cork
