The time constraints get even tougher in the summer because i have adopted a new ritual that i scarecely have time for!! That is the morning stroll around my garden whilst eating a bowl of cereal. I wonder what might have been eaten by snails during the night (i have a massive snail problem!) or what flowers might suddenly have appeared.
I think of this year as the first year of my garden. Last year the plants were new (having bought the house only last year) and half heartedly bloomed, this year though, things are growing with a vengence! Imagine my surprise this morning when i saw that my long awaited lillies have finally given me a spectacular flower. There are plenty more to come by the looks of it too...last year in its infancy i think i got one flower!! My other lillies have put up with a lot of being moved around this year, and i think they are protesting by refusing to flower, but oh well, at least i have these ones to keep me happy!
