It was a lovely sunny day here with a clear blue sky so I took the chance to get some outdoor painting done. I added my 3rd raised bed to the front of the house. It's the one on the left of this pic. It just needs to be filled with compost/soil now. I also painted the trellis. I'm hoping to get a clematis to climb up it this summer.
This is what the original 2 beds looked like before painting. I brought them from my old house so they're about 6 or 7 years old now. As you can see from the yellow flower the pak choy has gone to seed so it was pulled out. My leeks, kale and purple sprouting broccoli are still doing ok.
I gathered all my blue pots together. Just need to fill them now.
Let me out mum, I can help!!
It was a lovely day with lots of people passing by and commenting on the blue colour :-) After painting I pruned back loads of plants including the Hebe obscuring the middle bed. My brown bin is full of weeds and twigs ready for collection this week.
A very satisfying blue day with lots of bees and ladybirds :-)
