Wow, how the garden has grown, in only a week!!!

I have only been away working in the UK for one week, and i just cant believe how quickly things in the garden change, i think mother nature has had a red bull or two.

Like the Uk the weather has been bizarre with sun, rain and high winds, i guess the plants like this combination, although i don’t.

The tree were only just in blossom bud when i left and now they have burst forth and are looking and smelling beautiful.

The chives are showing off.

The geraniums are giving the chives a run for their money.

Poppies are popping up everywhere, even in piles of old rubble. The colour is so vivid.

And our roses beet the rest to first place, and they smell so sweet and heady, i love the smell of fresh roses after it has rained.

The sun made a welcome appearence and so did our pool technician, he was most welcome as we thought he wouldn’t be able to come until June.

Our pool liner had a rip in it at the end of last season, our pool company repaired it but said we had to have a new liner fitted, but this could only be done in the warmer months, so we have been waiting all winter for a warm sunny spring day to get it changed. The pool technician came last Monday but only managed to get the job half done as the rain came. The next appointment was June, but as mentioned he popped by on Thursday and finished the job.

mmm… now i just have to fill it!!!

Why the Henry hoovers i hear you ask? Well they suck the air out from the pool liner whilst its filling with water, i know weird but it works, and Henry dosnt mind helping out.
