The mild weather brings pests. The usual slugs and something that has attacked the passion flower. A few days ago it was looking beautiful and now it is looking so very brown and sad. Lets hope whatever it is doesn't kill it!
We are also seeing more wildlife in the garden although catching them on camera is proving difficult.
I hope you enjoy my pictures of a Cardiff Garden.

|Seeds just waiting to be sown|
We have bought a few packets of seeds that need sowing soon. Some annuals, because they make the front garden look so pretty, Sunflowers for Bear to enjoy and Echinacea because I love them. If you have never sown seeds check out my guide for absolute beginners.
What are you planning to grow this year?
