Spawn has arrived!

We had a good Gardeners Group meeting at lunchtime today, although we had to take cover to the club hut - the wind was very strong, cold and noisy. Notes to follow on the Gardening page.

First spotted on Saturday - and a large frog to go with it. They seem to like to lay it in the shallow parts of the pond.

The largest area of frogspawn. Lots of it.

We are enjoying these small daffodils. I think we need to plant more bulbs next year. They fill in a gap after snowdrops and before tulips. We have hyacinths coming into flower too.

We are doing lots of cutting back and weeding at the moment - to give new growth, such as this rhubarb and fennel  more space.

This early rhubarb is doing well - but we shouldn’t crop it too hard - it is still a baby plant - rescued from a nearby garden about to be bulldozed.

Justin’s garlic is doing well in the runner bean bed. I can spot some thistles too!
