Moved a young Witch Hazel (Diane) which I decided was planted in the wrong place and replaced it with a Daphne (Eternal Fragrance) near the front door. Dug out a rather too rampant Jasmine (stephanense) which hardly ever flowered from a large planter and replaced it with a fig (if something is going to make me keep hacking it back, it needs to earn it's keep!) Raised one of my veg beds by about 5 inches (width of a decking plank) so the spent compost from the greenhouse borders would be contained and moved that from one side of the GH to the bed. Pruned a few roses while catching my breath and weeded a couple of bucketfuls of creeping buttercup from various places while being followed by a Robin and a couple of dunnocks. Took a few more breaths admiring all the different types of crocus I planted a couple of years ago and watched the bluetits, goldfinches, greenfinches, coaltits and sparrows attacking the feeders while I had a deserved cup of tea. Wonderful day!
Seed sowing in the pottng shed tomorrow, while my back recovers!
