Back in the garden!

Well I have finally got back into the garden. My new husband isn't a gardener but he's good with lawns! At the moment he is tackling the moss that has taken a hold over half of it! 
The garden is really sad as nothing has been done to it for over two years. So I am now fired up with enthusiasm to tidy and get planting. 

I made a good start today by planting two planters with new potatoes! 

I also did some pruning and gathered up some of the many fallen leaves. The herb garden had a good tidying up and now looks quite bare.  

It needs forking over and weeding now. At the same time as we bought the compost for the potatoes I also bought some seeds and want to grow lettuce, beetroot and more herbs such as dill, basil and tarragon. We have had such a mild winter that the bronze fennel and the ordinary fennel have both overwintered with no problems. 

The camelia is looking lovely and so early!

    I don't blog so much about my garden these days but still enjoy gardening just don't have the time and busier than ever with my blog on Lyme Disease particularly as the science is now proving the patients experience all along.
