gardening before breakfast

Gardening before breakfast. It's a little bit radical (for me anyway) but it just seemed like a beautiful morning and I woke up earlier than usual. It was wonderful to get outside in the fresh air before they day began.

It's pretty twee I suppose - using an old wheelbarrow to plant annuals, but I don't care. These are something called junior petunias, a petunia but just a smaller bloom, surrounded by some pink alyssum. I'm hoping they'll grow as well as the last seedlings (which I finally pulled out on Sunday well past their use by date).
And this is my favourite thing in the front garden at the moment. It's a pink daisy bush that despite weeks of almost complete neglect is flourishing.
