IAVOM ~ Glow


Just a little pot of pansies from me today for this week's Monday vase. These are pansy 'Nature Mulberry Shades' which I think are most aptly named. They were sown last September and overwintered in the greenhouse before moving to the outer world in the spring. I'm also growing pansy 'Nature Antique Shades', a paler mix but they were sown this spring and have yet to flower. It is the first time I've sown pansies in some years usually just picking up plug plants from a garden centres. They took some time to get going but have finally got there. 

Thanks as always to Cathy who blogs over at 'Rambling In The Garden' who kindly gets us together every Monday for a floral shindig.

I have yet to start the Wordpress training course for u3a website editors that I mentioned in my last post as the course I intended to take was already fully booked when I applied. However I have a place on a course later this week. Thanks to all of you who offered me words of encouragement as I get to grips with the intricacies of Wordpress.

In other news the rain and wind continues along with well below average temperatures for the time of year. It is proving to be a great year for the roses though so there is some consolation. I hope to be back soon but if not I will still be popping by to keep up with what everyone is else is enjoying in their gardens.
