South-East Inland: Grey skies, threatening rain on and off.
So, I got out for a couple of hours. The soil is soaking wet but I managed to move a Phlox, plant a Salvia that I rescued from the garden the other day and moved a large clump of ALchemilla Mollis which I purposefully planted alongside my veg beds last year only to read that the plant wilts in full sun Anyhow, some went under my Aquilegias as experimental succession planting and the rest under my Fatsia Japonica in the top garden.
That large and splendid shrub has been there years, its nestled into a north-facing corner next to the shed and over hangs my patio area. I love the big shiny leaves and the Jurassic-type leaf buds and flowers but I must get round to sorting out something to go in the ugly L shape gap between the Fatsia and a large Acanthus. Perhaps Alchemilla will do the job, I'll see by the summer.
