A Spring Garden

Yes, I'm knitting, but I've just realised I've done 18 rows of ribbing on the wrong sized needles!

So instead of knitting I'm going to show you my garden, or rather close up shots of what happens in spring in my garden.
Freesia's next to our front door.

The nectarine, tends to be prone to leaf curl; have sprayed already.

Plum tree, hope to get fruit off it this time now that I know to look out for nasty wee aphids.

I love lichens, can live anywhere!

Though they look best on trees.

And then there's the interesting fungi.

The almond is also flowering.

Narcissi; these smell divine!

Love this hellebore
Hopefully I'll do better on the knitting after this.    Got to go and bake a chocolate brownie now for Father's Day and then frog the socks.   I'm also planning what I might do for the Wool Lover Blog Hop (see my sidebar).
At the moment I don't have the guidelines, but it'll either be a knitted shawl (Bosom Friend) or possibly a sewn paisley shawl or a fichu.   There might be some cat toys as well; we'll have to see how we go for time yet.   If it's either of the shawls that should also work for my outerwear challenge for the Historical Sew Fortnightly.
