One of my brothers is a forester in Scotland, he always wear a kilt whatever the weather, says the socks and the kilt are warm wool. Ref. chat on previous page.
Mild afternoon so gardened, first time for ages.
Planted "Crown Princess Margareta" climbing rose that I bought from David Austin back in June. Not as easy as it sounds as ground was full of rocks and had to dig a big hole and put some better soil and manure in it.
Then went to dig hole for "Teasing Georgia" climber but had to clear that bit of the bed first. Phlomis, Lamium and ivy had taken over, it was supposed to be irises. The irises were still there so dug them up, dug out unwanted stuff, dug in very well rotted manure, trimmed irises as Rachel de Thame did on GBGR and replanted them. Started digging hole for the rose, but was getting dark and had to feed the horses. That all took 3 hours.
Didn't know snow was forecast DD - rushes off to look at forecast.....
