garden :end of march 2012

march 30th 2012.

not the largest of plots, but just enough space  to stop me getting bored.

 this is the blueberry bush i rescued 3 years ago -  i moved it into the sun last year and it really didnt like it. - this year it`s back in the shade where the soil is slightly acid. judging from the appearance of early green shoots - i think it likes it. 
fingers crossed, i can  pick enough berries this year to make my very own blueberry muffin.

 random bulbs planted without ceremony last autumn.
quite a nice suprise to see a bit of colour.

feet up on a log, cup-o-tea in hand. lovely.
- especially first thing in the morning -

i planted some broccoli at the end of last summer, they survived the winter well - no sign of florets but the leaves are really tasty.  cut the main vein out the leaf, cut the leaves  into strips and lightly boil or steam with pepper. ( oops, forgot the spinach pics. )

here we go, the spinach starts to grow.

the bluebells will be flowering in the next couple of weeks.

ok, so i put my feet up after 10 minutes of digging.

i`ll update as i do more to the "yard", i dont like to rush these things.
more photos as things grow.

the walk to tettenhall wood.

the walk from pennfields to tettenhall wood is about 4 mile round trip.

these ended up the wrong way round somehow.

 pronounced : Whittick  Mannah.

this building sort of gives me the creeps, all boarded up.
almost built into the sandstone, all overgrown and that..

 words cannot describe how steep this hill is, 

  " straight outa " gets written on this sign quite often,

show some respect for the winstone.

Compton Hospice

A railway bridge that suffered an identity crisis in the 1960`s
thanks to mr beeching.
now its a bridge and is quite happy to carry nature walkers.

A nice walk actually, the old railway line.

way out of sequence, never mind.

i mean, this one is from just round the corner from my house.

the tree to pavement ratio does not favour the  double buggy.

Bantock House , well worth a visit .
