Pussy willow against a blue sky, and a walk along the shore with a friend - sun, showers, warm, cold..
But lovely in the greenhouse, stuffed with plants! The fuchsias called Checkerboard - a lovely lively red and white single flowered bush variety will go into a very large pot.
The white petunia with a lime green eye will form the basis of the three large black pots colour scheme for this year.
Much of the fun is in the planning, don't you think?
White and lime green for the hot hot summer days we are hoping for - trailing verbena, lobelia, geranium and petunia - all white, and golden helichrysum and lime green petunia if I can find them.
We filled the boot at Vertigrow, a favourite nursery just outside York. The greenhouse and the studio are bursting with plants - all waiting for warmer days and nights before they can go into the garden.
But at 9 o'clock this evening it wasn't quite dark..
and we saw a swallow a few days ago.
Village Beach Clean tomorrow morning with coffee and cakes in the Village Hall for the workers. Coronation Wood in the evening, with barbecue on the clean beach (locally produced venison burgers - yum!).
Busy wee place Ardentinny.
