Spring '17 | PlansFriday, March 24, 2017
See the bluebells
I always look forward to this, Andy and I go to local woodland and wander through the gorgeous carpet of blue. It never disappoints.
Plant up container pots and hanging baskets
This is another yearly task that I enjoy immensely, even though I know I'll be watering them daily for months I love how much colour and character they can bring to the house. They make it look so cheerful and welcoming.
Hit the beach
I'm hoping for some company this time around - my nephews with a big bags of coppers for the arcades, followed by chips, obviously.
Do It Myself
I've purchased paint for two decorating projects and I can't wait to get started.
Make a plan to grow soft fruit
My vegetable seeds are being planted this weekend, and after that I want to turn my attention to soft fruit plants - strawberries and raspberries are a must.
Having ignored my mend pile over winter I need to set about it. Most items are warmer weather clothes so the sunshine should be a good incentive.
After a good start over the winter I want to continue cooking a vegetarian meal once a month. My new recipes to try are Chickpea Tikka Masala, Vegetarian Lasagna (hopefully it'll be better than the boring spinach lasagna I tried in the winter), and Three Bean Chili. And I also want to try this cucumber pickle recipe I found thanks to Vix.
Read 12 Books
I've read one book already - The Winter Place which was a tad unseasonal but enjoyable none-the-less. I'm looking forward to my first hammock reading session. Perhaps I can squeeze in a beach reading session too?
Attend the Suffolk Show
I've lived in Suffolk for most of my life and I've never been. Shame on me.
What plans have you got for the spring?
