Spring has finally come to the Family B&B, and today I celebrated the new season by going to the garden centre.
During the winter months, our back yard looked piteous. We had next to nothing growing in there, and with summer approaching, I felt sorry for what should be our little piece of paradise. So I decided to get me some nice plants.
As I’d been setting money apart – €10 a month since somewhere last year – I now had €110 to spend on garden supplies. Today I only spent a little over €40, so there’s still money left for one or two more trips to the garden centre. Which is a good thing, seeing that I’m going to need more plants.
This is what the back yard looked like before I put in the new plants. Sad and empty. Though I’m happy to report that my chives and rhubarb are thriving.
Two more ivy plants went in with the others, and finally I put lots of herbs in the bed where I already had my chives and chamomile.
Much better, even if I say so myself. I can hardly wait for my next trip to the garden centre, but easy does it.
I’ve still got lots of other things on my To-Do list.
