Compost heaps and bluebell love

After much debate a site was chosen at the bottom of the garden for the new compost heap. The old compost heap now being the site of one of the garden sheds and as the temporary compost pile is under threat as it is to be the site of a new lawn. I thought I had better get on with it.

Several hours later……. a new compost area.  Just needs to be filled up with vegetation and weeds to make compost… but wait a minute I just pulled loads of weeds out.  Sigh……… Don’t you just love gardening. I never pulled the Bluebells out though I left them alone.

This moth landed on this wee bluebell in front of me while I was having my tea break from digging out and constructing the compost heap. It seemed to gaze at the bluebell in adoration. I love bluebells too.

I love Bluebells because they remind me of childhood walks in woods in Springtime….. I love they way they just pop up any where in the garden. This tiny little one shown above has pushed its way up on the side of the path…… I hope my significant other doesn’t rip it out.

Here are some more

I love bluebells they remind me of childhood walks in the woods…. they grow where they feel like it in this garden and they love the shady bits

It seems that a lot of other bloggers love them too as I found out  a few moments ago when I was testing out to see if I was managing to get to grips with tagging my posts.


About lejardineduroyaume

The property has a walled garden and an orchard containing 50 fruit trees which date back to the 15th Century. These fairly mature trees need to be replaced by grafting scions onto root stock to create young trees. I would also like to get more from my garden by growing my own vegetables, salads and herbs. I would also like help my significant other to re-establish a physic garden on this site.

  1. A word of warning. We were just reading this post and Mr Mac said to think seriously about using the pallet as it will be too high to turn the compost. We had 3 bins like yours and had to make new ones this year because we could not turn the compost to get airt into it (see blog).
