Yesterday, the first of May, was a sunny, breezy, warm gardening at the Allotment day! The neighbour was also there! We both garden but at different times, so giving each other a garden tour was a great way of catching up! That's her bike. Bikes with Huge baskets on the front are the in thing! No, not for me, thanks.

The Scarlet Runner beans are planted!

All the containers are filled with dirt.

Just a bit more weeding this week ! Soon the chance of frost will be gone and when the seedlings are big enough to be planted it will be greener at my garden plot!

And the beans are ready to be planted!

It's 30 April!
Wow! What Wisteria!

Garden chairs and cushions in the shade!

Spring is looking good!

Weekend! To let you know before this weekend starts:

The Tulips are looking great at Buitenzorg

Beans have been soaking for the Allotment!
The neighbours junk is my treasure!

An old drinkbowl from my Uncle's farm on Texel

from the old homestead as well!

An afternoon out in Baarn included a walk to a garden centre to get ideas...
and see new flowers!
Then a walk to Kasteel Groeneveld Park.
And at home we were creative!
