Spring is my second favourite season, behind summer. I just love all the new flowers and bulbs popping up after a long dull winter. My favourite part? Seeing all the blossom on trees and of course, all the tulips! That and seeing all the trees growing their new leaves again! I literally screamed in the car this afternoon when I saw a tree that almost had all of its leaves on haha! (I know, I’m crazy).
Last weekend, while I was preparing my raised beds from last year, I decided to whip the camera out and take some pictures of our garden at the minute. There isn’t really much since I dug it all up a few weeks ago to start from scratch, but we don’t have many spring flowers anyway. I still need to plant a lot of the things up as they’re currently just sitting in my raised bed as cat protection so Mr Toff doesn’t use it as his personal litter tray!
I’ve gone a little gardening mad this year. I applied for an allotment from our local council, but having only 39 plots, I think it’s going to be quite a few years before I actually get one, but I’ve taken over another section of the garden so I have more room for my veg this year. I can’t wait!

Thank you! 🙂 I’ve slowly invaded my parents garden, so we still have some restrictions, but it’s a start haha!

How lovely that spring flowers are popping up!! Gardening is so much fun, and so relaxing! I can’t wait to start on that here too.

April, you’re blog is still one of my favourite beautiful places to come to. Your spring garden is breathtaking – I am so jealous of the beautiful hues you already have! We are still getting rid of our winter snow, so gardening won’t commence for another month yet. Thanks for the inspirations! xx

Ahh thank you so much! 🙂 Oh wow – I can’t even imagine having snow still at the beginning of April. Hopefully it clears up soon and you can get out! I noticed you’re growing spaghetti squash this year? I’ve always wanted to try that, so you’ll have to keep us updated on how it grows! 🙂

I will definitely keep you updated! I’ve never grown spaghetti squash before, either. Se la vie, right? Incidentally, it’s probably growing the best under the grow light right now. So, we’ll see when it’s transferred. 🙂 xx
