Had two tonne bags of chipped blue slate delivered this morning so have been busy spreading it on the drive and raised-bed surrounds of my re-vamped front garden - before and after pics tomorrow, when it's done.
In between the bouts of heavy labour I potted on two dozen wallflower cuttings which were taken a few weeks ago, did some cosmos and dahlia dead-heading and cut back a few dead annuals (only those without seeds - anything bird-friendly I usually leave until Spring.) Managed to grab a few cupfuls of hazlenuts before the squirrels got them, too - they must be eating other stuff or have forgotten about my tree - I usually get left about 3! It's already covered in tiny catkins and should look amazing in late Winter. All in all a very enjoyable day. Plus the forum back working!
