I've been playing on my balcony!
I took my windowsill veggies (spinach, spring onions and kale, they weren't looking too happy!) and some sprouty garlic from the fridge, and planted them in a pot to put outside...
While I was out there I was sooo happy to see the bulbs I planted are coming up (daffodils, crocus and snowdrops) and my pansies are flowering...
And when I looked closer I noticed the forget me nots I dug up from mums garden last year are flowering too. Forget me nots are my favourite flower ever.
Oh yeah, and I made a pond. Or at least a water feature! This consists of a £2 plant pot, a solar fountain off ebay and will be filled with some plants nicked from Mums pond when the water warms up a bit. I'm hoping the water might attract some different insects to my balcony and keep the atmosphere from drying out so much when it's really hot and gets direct sunshine in the summer.
Since then it's done a big, big snow on top of everything (photo includes part of my pink dressing gown sleeve, for your viewing pleasure). Hope my little plants survive!
Are you doing anything garden-y, or waiting for nicer weather?
