Warm days in May

So this weekend, indeed week, has been another busy one, I have made cupcakes inour soaring temperatures for two retirement parties at work, boy did the icing melt! On Friday evening we celebrated Caitlins (a close friends daughter) 17th Birthday with a giant birthday cookie, which tasted as good as it looked. The Saturday lunchtime was a birthday lunch out for my mother in laws birthday, and Saturday eveing was a joint 50th birthday party for two friends, Phew!  Today I have concetated on the garden until the temperature pushed me back inside. First my hubby cut the lawn,

Then I sorted out the spring bulbs in tubs that have died off, and left them drying out.
Planted out my homegrown Sweet peas, can't wait to smell these.
Planted out salad onions, letuce and radish seeds
Watered my runner beans, growing nicely, and onions, 36 of them, in front of the beans.

and after planting the pansies, I sat and enjoyed a cup of tea and a little knitting.
