Spring on its way out (garden)

Spring garden.

The Spring bulbs have long since stopped flowering. The hyacinths ,daffodils snowdrops have given over to  wall flowers and forget me nots which flow through every boarder tying the garden together. Now the ground covering geraniums and lilacs are flowering .. The pond is now looking established even after one year with its frogs and tadpoles , the plants are beginning to encircle it nicely. The log habitat pile is getting covers with wild carrots and foxgloves which will bring more insects to the garden.

Its been a busy few weeks with my bees from splitting the hives to collecting swarms , I’ve gone from three hives in my garden to eight hives. But now the season should calm down as new virgin queens establish themselves and start to build up their own workers. Time for me to repair my bee suit ,make more equipment and build some more small hives.

  1. Your garden looks beautiful. My borders are just a bit ahead of yours and I have been taking out the forget-me-nots and cutting back the remains of the bulbs to let through the next batch of growth. Amelia

    • Yes I should take out the forget me nots , but while there are still a few flowers I’ll leave them and of course to seed too. I have some post of cuttings that need to go in but its finding space … I need bigger garden 🙂
