You can tell that Spring is not far away when

we can enjoy a cup of coffee in the garden without jackets on, and from our special gardening mugs,

and when we prick out the first tomato seedlings,

and when Tulips and Wallflowers flower side by side and clash,

and when all around us Blackbirds sing loudly proclaiming their territorial rights and the song of Goldfinches and Greenfinches fill the air,

and when the first fruit blossom opens,

and when you can finish the day off by making your first harvest of your “cut-and-come -again” salad and herb leaves, and then eat them with eggs produced by your own chickens.

About greenbenchramblings

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.

    Hi there. Found out about this blog via the Grow It magazine and its a lovley blog with great pics. Hope to get my hands on an allotment that the council may start up this year and have planted lots of seedling in preparation although I am a total beginner. Hope to be enjoying a cuppa like you on my allotment soon. Thanks for the pics and blog

    I want to join you too! Such a healthy hobby being one with nature and all that grows from the ground. My husband loves to garden. I’m the one who takes the pics and enjoys everyone’s efforts.
