However on a brighter note, on Saturday my son invited me to Cambridge for lunch. Brilliant I thought, I can arrive early and do some vegetable gardening, weeding and planting seeds and my early potatoes! No such luck; it was cold and damp and all we managed to do was clear the raised beds ready for planting when the weather warms up.
BUT I was absolutely horrified when I saw this bed -
last time I was in Cambridge this was a bed full of growing broad beans and now it is just weeds and everyone has been eaten by something!!! I couldn't weed because I am still hoping they will sprout, but I couldn't see the plants!
The purple sprouting broccoli was in a similar state
but it should recover.
I had been told that in the afternoon we would be going to church to do the Easter garden but this was postponed until very late afternoon because of this -
and when we arrived at the church it was closed after the funeral, in preparation for Easter Services. However we were admitted and the children helped with the garden for Easter Sunday.
|They did a lovely job|
It was a lovely family day especially as we all went out for a meal afterwards.
I did promise to show you my Easter 'eggs' made for my four grandchildren -
The children have loved them but it may be because I enclosed some money in each wrapped up egg!! Such fun to make.
