Some garden happenings....

A busy garden day today.
We caught a cream spotted ladybird & had a quick look at the little fellow. Then we headed off to the garden centre to buy an apple tree.

Underneath we planted Yarrow, Wood Anemone & White Campion.
We also planted Borage (in a pot, as it is quite an invasive plant) Thumbelina Carrots & Sunflowers. We also planted some potatoes I had been chitting for a while.

We later caught a Peacock butterfly which has reminded me to chop some fresh orange & leave on a bird feeder in the garden to attract butterflies.

All this has been recorded in E's garden notebook - our current project. We have had a lovely day. Chilled, but hard work.
I am off to make dinner: Cheesy cauliflower pasta. & then enjoy a relaxed evening knitting socks :)
Have a great day.


  1. Wow, you've all been very busy. What apple tree did you go for?

  2. Elaine, it is called 'scumptious' :)
    We needed a self pollinating tree & the chap at the garden centre recommended this one. I almost went for a miniature tree, but I was reminded by my girls, they want to be able to climb the tree ;)
