* Tomatoes are go *

Another lovely day and the greenhouse has had its anual clean and is now planted out with tomatoes and cucumbers, i decided this year to try out several varieties of tomatoes so that next year i can just grow the ones i like the most.

* cheeky pigeon *

Managed to get a photo of this cheeky pigeon trying to pinch the sunflower hearts, at one stage i thought he was going to get his head stuck.

* veggies in full swing *

Well what a differance a couple of weeks can make!! beautiful sunshine although a little chilly in the wind.

My little veggie patch is coming along nicely with Runner beans, peas, cabbage, sprouts, purple sprouting brocoli, potatoes, carrotts, parsnips, radish, spring onions, beetroot, lettuce and mixed salad leaves all planted and growing lovely, can't wait to harvest them.
The potatoes, carrotts and parsnips i am growing in large tubs so when the potatoes are ready i can lift the plant, take off what i need and the replace the plant.

I'm pleased that my magnolia has survived its move, something i didn't want to do last year but had to so it was a case of move it or loose it altogether and although it hasn't as many flowers as usual at least it didn't die.

The flowering cherry is full of buds this year i'm so looking forward to seeing this in full bloom.
