First mow of the garden in 2011

The lawn and all the grassy banks have been mown for the first time today. What a great smell that fresh cut grass is- a real feeling of summer on the way.
I've also been taking a look at my herb garden to see what's happening there.
The bay has been badly hit by frost and needs a heavy trim.
The rosemary has been completely killed off and will need replanting.

However, the Sweet Cicely is coming up well, just in time to sweeten the first rhubarb. Did you know that sweet cicely cuts the sharpness and so reduces the amount of sugar needed. Read more about sweet cicely from these links.
