I couldn't wait to get up this morning, I'd been planning this day throughout the week and regardless of whatever weather system was going to loiter over my garden, I was determined to be out, working in it.
Michael had bought me a little green house for my birthday and putting it together was the first job on his list. As it turned out, it was the only job completed from his list, it was one of those things that looked easy enough to do but ended up taking all day.

While he got on with that, I turned my attention to clearing out my shed and sorting out and moving various pots of different shapes and sizes.

One of the camellia's is already in flower and the other does seem to have quite a few buds. I don't think either of them flowered very well last year, so it looks promising.

It was lovely to be outside, quite bright and mild. To be honest, you could easily forget that it was still February. I thought, that due to the very bad weather before Christmas I would loose quite a few plants in the garden but I was surprised today to see virtually everything on the move. Only the cordyline didn't survive, I touched it and it just fell apart - rotten right through!

Finally as the daylight disappeared, Michael was able to finish the green house and put it in place. It may be empty now, but I don't think it will be too long before I fill it up!
