Keeping up with my monthly photo posts, this is march at Fairview in glorious technicolour...
Ladybirds seem to be everywhere now. My preferred method of aphid control!! :)
One of my favourite herbs is Basil. I'm trying a new variety this year... lime flavoured Basil, I am looking forward to tasting it!
A Camellia in full flower in the polytunnel.
Some Bellis perennis brightening up the garden.
The ubiquitous spring bulb shots now... firstly a white narcissus, I have no idea what cultivar though.
Again, I have no idea what cultivar this yellow daff is.
Sunday was a glorious day to be out in the garden!
The bright yellow blooms of the Forsythia's look most striking in the sun!
This large willow tree fully loaded with catkins, was like a gourmet buffet for the bees. I couldn't believe how many were happily buzzing around it, and how noisy they were.... I actually thought I had got too close to a bee hive at first and was poised to scarper... but then realised where the noise was coming from. I was absolutely over the moon to see so many bees about already! :)
A very satisfying view down the veg garden for me on sunday afternoon. All cleaned up and ready for the coming seasons after a lot of hardwork. I did however purposely avoid including the rest of the garden in the photo, as it is in no way fit for showing off yet. In the foreground of the photo is one of my potato beds which has all the first and second earlies in, and the far end is my allium bed. All I really need to do now is just keep it tidy and weed free (if only it was that simple).
My first earlies starting to get earthed up.... I can taste those lovely new potatoes already!! :)
