Ready For the Off?

Friday was another blustery day with gale force winds and some intermittent showers. It continued mild for late January. 
We had a nice mid morning rainbow but I couldn't find a spot in the garden where the full rainbow was visible. Then we had our final delivery from Kings seeds. This time it was a couple of sacks of seed potatoes.
They're not all for us I hasten to add a few are for other plot holders as we have ordered through the Kings Allotment Holders Scheme. I’m guessing I’ll have to get them set out in trays to chit in the greenhouse over the next few days. It’s a matter of keeping them cool so that they don’t start growing too quickly producing long thin straggly shoots. They won’t be planted for a couple of months. We don’t normally start planting our potatoes until the beginning of April.

We had a quick visit to a garden centre on Wednesday afternoon and apparently I bought another hellebore, Spring Promise, to add to our ever growing collection.   
Whoever decided on the purchase I think it was a pretty good choice.

  1. Can never have too many hellebores - they provide so much variety & interest at this time.
