After two busy weeks my husband and I finally managed to find some time to visit our garden. My old followers may already know, but we have an allotment garden at the edge of Rotterdam. It's our little piece of paradise.
The mild temperatures and the sunshine made it feel like spring today! While pruning the roses and cutting back some of the stems that have been left through winter, the sun warmed our faces.
It was the first time I saw the garden after the heavy frost of two weeks ago. Some pots and plants did not survive the cold. I lost my Penstemons, three or four roses and a huge Rosemary bush. I will have to wait and see what comes up in spring.....
On the other hand the Hellebore was looking exceptionally beautiful and so did the yellow and purple crocuses. I picked some snowdrops to put in a vase and planted cyclamen hederifolium in a shadowy space under the trees. Tomorrow I will plant Garlic and make a start with the preparation of some seed trays.
Have you been working in the garden this week?
A Happy weekend,
