on my windowsill...

...this fabulous weather is making everything grow and grow.  My windowsill in full of pretty pink and red geraniums and polygoniams.  My father in law brought them all the way down from Northumberland over Easter and now they look stunning.  I could sit and stare at them all day.
my David Austin rambling rose is also flourishing but rather small at the moment.  I'm going to train it against the wooden fence.

In a few years I hope it will look like this...

Remember the pussy willow?  I still have it and it is sprouting tiny green shoots!
My peonies are coming up.  Tiny rhubarb looking spikes.  You would never guess what beautiful blooms will follow in a few weeks....I can't wait to see them again.
And these are suger snap peas being brought on before transplanting into the allotment.
and finally a little pixie found running about in the garden! 
What a little darling!!
see you soon, Lucyxx

STOP!! I can't bear any more of these wonderful "how my garden is growing/blooming" blog posts. A) I don't have a garden and long for one and B) I longed so much that I applied for an allotment. It took 18 months waiting to get one that had clearly been abandoned and unused for some time. At the bottom of a slope with hardly any topsoil due to drainage problems. And it was snowed under for the first two months. Then the weeds shot up a mile high. The warden advised against rotavating and suggested I pay another holder to strim it. £20 poorer I went to buy some apple trees and berry bushes, then - oh well it all ended in disaster and I was evicted. So though I now live in a country city townhouse I long for my former London garden. Sob.(But I do love you photos - sob again.)

Wonderful! All our flowers are poking their heads out from the ground now, and all the primroses are dancing in the wind and smiling at me :) xx

Hi Lucy,
WOW, you garden is really bursting into life. Ours is rather behind yours but, it faces north and is always behind everybodys !! We have a David Austin rose in the front garden, so it faces south . It is called St. Swithins and flowers from May until late October. We have had it for quite a few years now. Yours won't take long to grow.
Many thanks for popping in to see me and leaving a comment.
Have a great week. XXXX

Hi Lucy
The flowers are absolutely gorgeous and I too have a weakness for David Austin roses - they are so stunning. I also hope that mine will look like the rose in your photo!
