Yesterday I was overcome with an urge. An urge to get started on my garden! Our garden needs a lot of work doing to it before it can be as lovely as I imagine it, and yesterday was the day I got to work. I hired a skip and began getting rid of all the old flags and bricks that were cluttering it up. It felt so good to get my teeth into a project, and I've already cleared quite a lot!
I dug up one of the beds which had become overrun by weeds, and imagine my delight when I dug up about a dozen of these little beauties:
Pasnips! Rather suprising too, as I haven't planted any parsnips since we first bought the house - three years ago!
I think my project to turn my garden into something beautiful is going to be hard, but it will be so worth it in the end. Mind you, it probably wouldn't be quite so hard if I didn't try to rescue every last ladybird that I saw!
