Lots of work in the gardens over recent days…cutting back, shredding and tidying up.
Grass paths have been dug in along the edges and the birds have followed looking for tasty morsels!
Can you see the pink blossom on the Nectarine tree?
You can see it better in the top pic.
Laurels grow very fast and if an archway is to be maintained then a heavy cut must be carried out every 2-3 years.
All the cuttings are shredded and spread on beds and compost heaps.
This morning is warm and filled with sunshine as I walk the permaculture gardens of Bealtaine Cottage.
Broad beans are ready to plant out…
Bealtaine Cottage is also on YouTube…with over 85 videos about Permaculture, planting, growing and living.
The archives on this blog measure over 500 in total!
Donations are always welcome.
Thank you for supporting this blog
NAMA to Nature – an idea thought up by Andrew Legge and Serena Brabazon – has a Facebook page which records its work with the message:
“Ireland has over 600 ghost estates & 40,000 empty dwellings. Rather than watch government procrastinate let’s help nature take them back.”
This is the kind of direct action for the environment I love…don’t you?
A link to an article about them…do click on and read, it’s fascinating!
I thought that was worth sharing with you!
Today I made a short video all about easy flowers for your garden…the easiest, for all you have to do is shake!
Yes, just shake the seed around and wait!
Simplicity is the key to happiness! Make every aspect of life as simple and uncomplicated as possible! De-junk home, life & food cupboards!
Throw those seed around in a display of wanton abandonment!
The Bees will love you for it and Nature will smile upon you!
Here’s the link to today’s video… click and enjoy!
