Blitz those weeds

















Just a week after I posted their first budding, these dwarf daffodils have burst into flower. So lovely to see them. I posted a snap of them in a recent post here if you want to compare the progress of our Spring.

They don't seem to have minded being splattered and battered by the rain bouncing up from the soil. Nor did we, as we went to do some weeding on Saturday afternoon and stayed even when the rain beat down! Are we mad? Err...maybe.

I got into one of my "blitz those weeds" moods. Here's a shot of the rhubarb bed afterwards. Besides the leaves you can see, there are also a number of tiny red hearts ready to push up shoots, so I'm hoping it won't be too long before we can bring some stems home.

The next bed down from this one has 4 blueberry bushes and then there are 2 gooseberry bushes. They are just breaking into leaf, so no surprises that they got the weeding treatment as well. Something so very satisfying about that lovely black pristine.
