The Half-March Garden

Having spent a week on the ski slopes, the garden has mostly been looking after itself. Despite the continuing bursts of cold weather, the grass is growing; a trim will be called for soon.

The magnolia is leading the way for the tree blossoms, though it feels later than last year. A few daffs are out, but again I’d have expected more.

Still, the new path/bed works are nearly complete – two bits of old york stone edging onto the lawn left. Then it’s the raised beds – the ground is being prepped – and some lawn works.

It’ll soon be full of colour I expect. See what you think…

And then there’s always Dog helping…

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    More than promising…One could ‘holiday’ in your garden quite easily…just need a sand-pit! x

    Looking great. Gardens, left to their own devices, manage to still look amazing. Dog of course kept an eye on it for you.

    The garden is showing all the signs of a spectacular spring. Just lovely all year round. Dog doesn’t seem impressed!

    Your garden looks about like ours. Generally it’s a little further along but lack of sun has definitely slowed things up a bit. Who’s the guy with the head phones?

  8. This is so beautiful and serene that it takes my breath away, Geoff.
    Although, on a different note, it would probably be a good idea to burry the body that’s under that blanket…
    😉 Hugs.

    I’m looking forward to full Monty. Good place for the secateurs as long as you had your glasses on. Always amazes me why they didn’t produce them in very bright colours, we spent a fortune over the years. Usually, found them when I was on the turn around mower, ouch.
