My Garden

My small suburban garden…

Easter Bank Holiday Monday…

After a damp and dismal Easter Sunday, the sun has come out and along with it are my baby bees! I’ve never actually seem them emerging from my bee hotel before so it was quite a thrill to watch them taking their first tentative steps outside my old baked bean tin this morning.

Although we did have rain yesterday the ground remains parched, so I reluctantly used the watering can to freshen things up a bit. The white jasmine has never, ever had so many buds and I look forward to seeing it in full bloom soon.

The wildflower mix that I waxed lyrical about last year has self-seeded and already there’s alyssum and Californian Poppies growing in the troughs. Hopefully my small suburban garden will now begin to flourish…



  1. How exciting to be a bee mummy! My poor bee nursery has never had so much luck!

  2. My bees have emerged before but I’ve always missed the event. Was trying not to get too close (didn’t want to disturb them – or get stung). There’s now just 2 chambers to go 🙂
