Although Spring began late this year everything is finally beginning to grow. The trees in our street should be in full leaf soon. There was one bonus standing at the bus stop on Monday John and I could here squawking and in the fork of two branches in the tree opposite we could just see the heads of baby birds being fed by their parent. Could not identify the kind of bird though and it flew off too quickly for us to get a good look.

The sun brought these into flower...

...not sure what they are called but they look similar to a daffodil. In the grow bag we have radish and cut and come again salad leaves. The leaves did very well last year. There are three compartments but I did not photograph the bare patch in the third. However this afternoon I did notice a hint of green shoots coming through, so things change very quickly.

In the mini green house there are various small plants including tomatoes.

We have far too many!
I am hoping the weather is favourable at the weekend so we can plant out the sweet peas

Grace's cardi is also growing but not I fear as fast as she would like

I do not seem to have had much time. I have had an enjoyable time back at the school I was working at before Easter. I just love working with individual children.
I have not had much time to sew this last week.
My broken tooth has been repaired, the back is almost better except for the odd ache now and again.
Thanks for dropping by
