Yesterday was the first time we went out to face the mess. And it was a mess, but there was also some good news. Flowers I thought I'd never see had started to appear, we've had this white dicentra for a couple of years and it has never flowered, I thought it had died, but here it is! It is in the area of the garden where I did quite a bit of cutting back last year so maybe that extra bit of light and space has done the trick. It looks beautiful anyway and I'm very happy.
We spent the rest of the time sorting out the veg bed, as you can see it was rather weedy! It was lovely to spend a bit of quiet time in the sun just doing something small but worthwhile.
There's still a long way to go, but now that job is out of the way it all seems positive, rather than just making amends for something we didn't do. We also stuck some seeds into the ground - mooli, squash, pak choi, beetroot and sunflowers. We have some pots to fill so we'll investigate them sometime next week.
