I don't know if Spring is definitely here but there was certainly a glimpse of it this weekend. As it was looking so lovely outside husband and I decided we would do some gardening this weekend. Our garden was in desperate need and we have husbands parents and Nana coming in a couple of weeks so there was extra impetus to get in there and sort it out. We went up to our local garden centre first thing yesterday morning to pick up a few things. Now bearing in mind it really is barely spring and there was not that much available to buy husband and I still managed to go over budget. Never mind though the garden was needing it.
So yesterday we spent most of the day weeding, picking up leaves and cutting back the plants we have. It doesn't sound like much but it took ages. It was worthwhile though because today we got to do the fun stuff, the planting. We planted a Raspberry bush, a bay tree, some herbs, some daffodils and added fresh compost to our existing plants. All in all we were pretty pleased with the results. This will be our third summer in our house and really only our third year gardening, so we are still newbies at the gardening game!

Phoebe was not sure if she like herbs...
