May Days

 May garden 
 Kings Choice Tea  Sweet Peas  Path  Tomatoes  Tulips  Pelargoniums  Evening Garden
It's still a bit nippy but the garden is coming alive. Plants I had forgotten about, weeds that I'd rather forget and some new additions. I always buy Pelargoniums/Geraniums (which one? I never know) and plant up the window boxes and pots as they last for months and the slitherers don't munch them.

Still plenty to do. Seeds to sow for a cutting garden, play houses to finish decorating, gravel paths to put down. My tomato seedlings did not germinate so I've cheated and bought tomato plants. To be honest, I never have much luck with tomatoes.

Little Bird is happy on the days he can mooch around the garden although he has developed a love for taking flower heads off - my poor tulips. 

Joining in with Mammasaurus and How does your garden grow linky. There are some lovely garden to look at over there.

Your garden looks fabulous - really colourful and welcoming. (We never have much luck with tomatoes either - ours look very scrawny at the moment!)

Your garden looks lovely. Do I spy a little hide away, wendy house at the bottom of your garden?
Thank you for popping over and leaving a comment- I'm pretty rubbish at leaving comments too. Regarding your comment, the chapel is in the country. It's actually part of a vintage museum although you could never tell looking at the photo. Yes, i got married in a museum!!
