How are you doing? Not long to go now. Starting a week late and catching up in a week seemed like a good idea but I’m flagging. And just when we get to yet more hard letters. What was I thinking?
Well, I’m constantly heading outside each morning to update myself on life in my garden. Things change all the time. Above is what this years blackcurrants currently look like. My beans are doing well. The tulip’s have gone over but the aquilegia’s out.
And while we’ve all been enjoying everyone’s amazing blogs I didn’t quite manage to clear everything off my veg plot, more about that tomorrow, gripping I know. Here’s what the bluebells look like today.
My AtoZ Blogging Challenge is all about gardening, Lynne style.
If you’ve enjoyed reading this post why not see what others are doing too during 2017 AtoZ Blogging challenge, look in the comments on the letter of the day blog or like their facebook page. I look forward to seeing you back here tomorrow.
Beautiful flowers. Interesting to see the blackcurrants as I haven’t seen them before. Thanks for sharing

Thanks Suzy, We all get so familiar with our own surroundings and forget others have completely different experiences. Blackcurrants have been a part of me all my life. There will be another blackcurrant picture, I think, in Z.
IT does get harder as you get to the end of the end of the alphabet.
Or easier.. But I agree it’s the tougher letters but there’s less choice which also helps. Unless you’re theme is a ready made A-Z list like one of our fellow bloggers.
Which is the ready made blog?
Iain Kelly’s using the A-Z childrens Puzzle. Still hard work, but all his words are already chosen. Genius.
Bluebells are beautiful! A few trips through this Challenge have taught me that the stretch run is the most difficult! I’m going off the cuff this time, and haven’t planned any posts beyond today’s letter! Best of luck to you. Glad I found you.

I’m glad you found me too! thanks for visiting. I’ll be heading over. the final five are drafted and mostly pre-scheduled which is a relief.
It’s all downhill from there!
Such gorgeous photos – what a delight to peek into your garden. Like Suzy, I wasn’t familiar with blackcurrents either. They’re certainly beautiful in this stage.
Thanks Deborah. glad you like the photos. Blackcurrant tart and blackcurrant Jam are favourites of mine, or straight from the bush. If not over sweetened it’s a perfect, slightly tart taste.
I am really loving your posts in this challenge. So glad we reconnected!

thanks Donna, me too. I’ve really enjoyed this years. Less pressure without all the sketching, next year will be back to sketching.
Thank you for your garden updates. They remind me that one day soon (I hope) my garden will also be in bloom. For now the snow keeps threatening.
Snow? It’s very chilly with us at the moment so everything’s slowed down again.
My garden’s well behind the schedule for tidying and weeding. The blog’s up to date, though 😉
I’ve been really enjoying the bluebells this year – went on a 3 hour bluebell walk last week and it turned into 4 and a half hours as we got lost! those bluebells on your picture are Spanish though – we like the British ones, darker, almost purple, and they bend over, and smell so much sweeter. We’ve been trying to dig up all the Spanish res so they don’t inter-breed.

Completely agree. I’ve got a variety I think. It’s an amazing year for them.
Ah, bluebells! I love bluebells even though Spanish invaders have more or less done for our native varieties.
Another day in Amble Bay!
