- One was from a reader who no longer has her own garden, so for her I will keep posting photos of the progress in my garden throughout the year.
- another was what tools I use, or what makes it possible to garden on a 'simple' scale, I include my suggestions here.
- my own query was, are my Tulips from Amsterdam really as red as the package suggested? The seemed kind of yellow when still in bud...
|The now beautifully budding leaves of the|
|Strawberries (soon to be moved)|
and water for the birds
|Apple blossom blossoming|
|Euphorbia in my front garden|
(and everywhere esle...)
|My absolute favorite in order to do my gardening|
An old very sturdy crate,
and a small cushion.
I don't have to bend to far down to do the weeding
|My set of hand tools|
including the three pronged one, which loosens the soil with ease
The flat headed one is handy for "raking" the weeds out of the soil or gravel path
the forked kind, which is brilliant to take weeds out on by one at the roots
|Mariela brought me these children's garden tools|
Brilliant. Light weight, small, perfect for use when sitting down
and not have a lot of power...
I can reach a bit furhter without having to move my crate
my tulips are RED!
