Yesterday it rained. Last night it poured. Today I got to jump in puddles with No.4! How cool is that? Lucky for us I bought some lovely shiny gumboots on Saturday. A serious gardener has to have a pair of boots after all.
Don't our boots look lovely all lined up? Daughters 1 and 2 share a pair as they don't often need them. I'd rather have the cute pair on the left, but plain red is the next best thing.
It was a grand day on Saturday so we made the most of it. Some of the seedlings were transplanted into their new homes. My bench was getting a little overcrowded. It still is with the addition of another couple of seed packets. The rain sure has made them grow.
I had a secret little helper too. Look what I found No.3 doing. Picking up all the fallen leaves. She has a lot of interest in the garden and is great at weeding.
She picked up a whole wheelbarrow load by herself! And when I asked her if she enjoyed doing it, she said "No not really". She just saw that it needed doing and thought she'd help out. What a little sweetie, and she's only five too. They are now in my compost heap and under the broccoli plants for mulch.
Look, Spring is here! Isn't she a beauty? No.4 is very pleased it's outside her bedroom window. When she's looking at the stars at night, she can see her flower too.
My mother gave me another big bag of lemons. Well of course I just had to make a double batch of lemon curd and two packets of lemon cordial to freeze. And did you know that I've been making bread ever since I told you I was going to? That must be at least two weeks or more. Go me! It's so easy and there is nothing nicer than serving up a tray of freshly made bread and homemade jams in the weekend. Oh and watching Mamma Mia at the same time!
We had a lovely weekend. I hope you did too. The sun is back shining brightly, for the whole week I hope. I really must get back to sewing one of these days. I've been spring cleaning the kitchen cupboards instead. See I told you it was Spring!!
