Warmth in the air

I have really enjoyed the warm weather over the last few days. I know it's not summer yet, and the forecast for the coming week is pretty bleak, but the warmth in the air is a good reminder that spring is on the way! I've spent some time this week just sitting in the back garden with a mug of hot chocolate and my thoughts, and my outdoor runs this week have been lovely, it's such a change from dragging myself out in the January frosts!

The garden needs quite a bit of work to get it summer ready. We bought a jet washer to do all the paving slabs which very badly need cleaning, but I'm waiting until it warms up just a little bit more before I get started! The vegetable patch isn't looking too bad this year so there isn't too much weeding to do, but it all needs a good dig over.

Some of my strawberry plants didn't survive the winter but luckily plenty of them did. My lavender bush is also looking nice and healthy.

I'm never quite sure when to start planting out my vegetable seeds. Last year was a bit of a failure because the weather was so bad for months and they all either died or just went all stringy from being blown around. I'm hoping that we might see a bit more sunshine this summer and some warmer temperatures!

I do like this time of year, I'm definitely not a winter person!
