hiya verdun it kind of dawned on me a few seconds after posting , In other places they are known as trolls.

After the glorious sunshine of yesterday the weather has turned against me. which is a pity as I have a few plants to plant out and a need to do some weeding. Seems most of whats coming up this year is winter rocket, or wild mustard.

most of my window boxes have died with the odd geranium surviving i'm not sure to empty them or replant the boxes as they are packed with roots. 

I think i need to get some perennials in the garden but I am struggling for inspiration too many look like council planting if you know what i mean but I have a long stretch which is looking like a mud plain or a patch of grass with thistles. where I haven't weeded out yet. It's also spreading a bit as its higher than the stone but there is no retaining border. I was considering some low expanding trellis to define the edge but as it finishes up in stone it wouldnt look right.

well the weather should give me time to think anyway.
