I've just realised it's over three months since I last did a proper post (as opposed to the automatic posts from Diigo). How did time go so quickly?

While I've been MIA in the blog world, we've had the worst winter in my lifetime here in the UK. For those of you who get lots of snow every year it probably doesn't sound that great but for us it was lovely to keep waking up to snow. It almost became normal to wake up to a new layer of snow! Admittedly though we didn't suffer adverse effects of the snow because my husband works as a gardener so wasn't having to get out to work and we live in a well served village so can get to shops for essentials on foot.

Now that summer is on the way, I have been working on our garden. Last year it was more like a wild meadow (see the first photo on my "Summer Days" post) but now that it has been tamed I am putting in some vegetable patches. The plan is to do one 5'x20' bed this year, prepare another two ready for planting for next year and maybe do a fourth the year after. Plus a narrow bed along the fence. I've almost finished double digging the first bed and tomorrow will hopefully do the fence one (which will be about 1'x20') and plant my seeds (some direct and some in pots for transplanting once the frost risk is gone). We've also managed to remove the pampass grass visible in the picture below and currently that space is temporary home to two rhubarb plants. I'm so looking forward to eating rhubarb!

We're also currently in the throes of a general election here in the UK. (Not that it's much of a battle here - apparently I live in the safest Labour seat in the country.)

And I've been getting very annoyed about abortion. But I'll save that for other posts.
