On Saturday it was garden weeding day.
|Hellebores from the garden|
Henk was doing the hard work, chain sawing in the paddock the tree he felled last weekend and working on our new garden beds.
Only a few weeks away and we can plant the first seed potatoes and I can sow peas and carrots.
We still get heavy frosts some night, so I have to be patient sowing directly into the soil.
I have already started sowing under glass, mostly flowers for the summer garden.
This year I want to grow more cut flowers for my posies I sell at my plant stall outside the gate.
While I was weeding I noticed the Hellebores, each winter they flower very quietly under shrubs and their flower heads are tucked away between the leaves.I love Hellebores, the colours are so delicate and I have purple and green Hellebores in my garden.
They don't last long in the vase inside, so I picked a few and painted a little watercolour to make into a card.
Now it is a little museum.
Every Sunday I take part in Sunday Sketches.
