Yup it’s true! As I went to make my lunch this afternoon I spotted a little butterfly on the Aubrieta that is all over the front wall in the garden. (I am not sure what exact type of Aubrieta it is, as it was here when we moved in).
Whilst I was outside, I also decided to do what I was dreading, and pick off the strawberry flowers… But as suggested by a friend, I have only picked off the flowers from half the plants. A mini ‘Monty Don’ experiment it would seem, to discover whether I will actually get better strawberries from those plants next year, or not…. Watch this space 🙂
I also couldn’t resist taking a couple of photos whilst I was outside, as it was so beautiful. Photos taken on my mobile, so are not the best quality. I shall find my camera and take better photos soon….

Some Spring bulbs, which were planted up last year by my boyfriend’s parents and given to us as a Christmas present.
Winter flowering pansies…. what a bargain! These were planted from six small plants late last September as an attempt to make my view from the window slightly less grey when I was washing up. I have been dead-heading them all along, and they’ve got bigger and are still flowering! Lovely Jubbly! 😀
Back to work….. ho hum 🙂
