The garden has suffered immensely this year after a long period of dry, cold and frosty weather. Finally things have started to warm up and a few rainy days have prompted the plants to unfurl their leaves and start growing.

Paul has pruned the damage from the roses and we have had to cut the hydrangea bush right back. The hydrangea always starts to grow so early in the season and its new leaves were badly burnt and blackened by the constant frost. Everything in the garden is about a month behind but most plants are quite resilient and have survived the harsh spring.

Kat is due home tomorrow after her three month overseas deployment. Her re-vamped bedroom is all ready for her. Rick will go bonkers when she walks in and he won’t leave her side for a minute while she is here. At least I will finally get to watch the Great British Sewing Bee!
