Planting a little sunshine in the Garden

When there's no sunshine in the sky - it's so nice to find a little in the garden. Here is my old quince that dates back to my home's original 1950s garden.

I planted up a pot of orange ranunculus and pansies around a bright yellow smoke bush that wintered very well in the garage. Although neither the ranunculus or pansies will last through the summer months - it just makes me smile to look at the bright colours.

This is the week I finally must get to the top dressing of the lawn - yes, was on the list last week, and never did make it to the top. I'll be sure to order the mix....first thing tomorrow.
