So although we've had a few good days I haven't yet done any work on the allotment...I did manage to get a bee inspection done which was enlightening to say the least..and I've got some stuff done in the garden so I am feeling quite happy about that.
First..lets go to the garden.
So you all know about my package of bulbs and this spurred me into action in the garden...after all I had to find somewhere for them to go so I decided to go a little bit of re-vamping.
I decided to put them in the back flower bed along with lots of other plants which would come back or self seed yearly...this is what I have so far...

Down the right hand side I am going to get a little lavender hedge going...I would like some heathers in too but I'm not sure how well they'd do here as the soil has quite a lot of clay and so holds the water...Anyone know of anything else I could plant that the bees would love be likes a wetter soil??

So that's it in the 'sorting out of the flowerbeds'. Honestly I thought the post would be longer...it sure took me a long time to get the garden to this stage but it was time happily spent outside.
Oh, and sorry about the quality of the pictures...for some reason that right now I cannot fathom...I took them all from inside through the windows?!?!
