Garden Journal

Getting started …

I’ve been thinking for a while about starting an informal little garden journal. Just a notebook really, with possibly some of my own drawings in it when I’ve established the habit. I started on April 3rd, a day of some significance for me for other reasons, and I can tell by the handwriting that I was enjoying the process of writing it.

Nothing much has been added since, unfortunately, because I’ve had so many other things to do, but Easter weekend seems a good time to pick up the threads and start work again, both in the garden and the journal.

Wish me luck!

Step 1 – Tulips

In a little-read post (and I can’t blame anyone for that, as it was mainly a note to myself), I outlined Four Garden Plans. One of them was to plant some red tulips, for a burst of colour in the spring of 2017.

I bought two small packs of tulip bulbs, one red, one very dark purplish-black, and, in my usual haphazard way, planted them aroundĀ the garden. Now I just have to wait, and try to identify step 2!
