Notes from my garden with a bit of other stuff thrown in.

Spring is almost here!
We had a glorious weekend here at Whitelees.
For most of the weekend we had life enhancing sunshine and for all of the weekend it was dry!
I'm going on a dive trip in a few days and decided that I would wear shorts while I'm away. I was digging out the summer clothes only to discover that they all smelled musty. The didn't really get an airing last year so they've been in the bottom drawer for a long time. I managed to get them - and all the bedding - washed and dried on the clothes line. I got clothes dried on Saturday and Sunday! I just love the smell of things dried on the line. There is no chemical or artificially produced scent that can top it. I even prefer bath towels to be dried on the line. I like the scratchiness. It makes me as though I get a little bit drier than I do with the fluffy, machine dried towels with added fabric softener.
When scraping weeds and assorted things that aren't flowering plants out of the herbaceous borders I paused as I found that a ladybird was walking across my sleeve.
Today I saw a Mayfly on the window! I looked at the calendar today so I know that it is still March. It continues to be March for a few more days.
