Emerging at the plot

Windy but surprisingly sunny today and time to look more closely at the plot. Too wet to dig, but started on a third bed by the gate by removing large perennial weeds and putting a thick layer of  peat free compost on top. When the soil dries up a little, hoping this can be the sunny spot for my sweet peas.

No obvious sign of tulips in the second bed, but very close to soil peering revealed an emerging tip.

The barely visible tip of a tulip!

The bees neighbouring the plot seemed busy near their hives and the catkins bordering the plot looked brown and golden in the sunlight.

Still too muddy to do any direct sowing, but as last week indoor sowings have germinated will do some more for windowsills at home.
