A great haul of parsnips!

We have been digging over the vegetable beds, weeding them and preparing them for Spring sowings.  Yesterday Neil tackled what he thought was some weeds and lo and behold he dug up a marvellous haul of parsnips.

It was quite a surprise as I had already dug up some parsnips a month or so earlier and thought that was all there was.  I had grown these from seed but obviously not marked the place very well, so we had not realised there were more.  We shall be eating parsnips with everything over the next few weeks.  I do love roast parsnips, especially with a little cumin sprinkled over the top!!

I’m looking forward to peeling that large one on the top!!

Lilac is the colour

The first floor bedroom has had 2 coats of lilac paint to make a statement wall.  We are really pleased with this.

The 2nd floor bedroom is going to have a blue wall as a statement wall.  Curtains and bedding will all co-ordinate so hopefully the overall theme will be pleasing.  The other walls will be magnolia with white on the woodwork.

Its lovely to see the wainscoting going down especially round the curved walls, so clever!!

Outside the builders have been laying slabs around the raised beds that they created outside the kitchen.

Over the weekend we shall be adding more plants, herbs into this bed (as above) and flowers into the other bed.

Next week they are going to start tiling.  It’s so exciting seeing it all come to fruition after so long.  Can’t wait for it all to be finished.  Mid April is the expected finish time.
