The sun is doing its best to peek in through the blinds at work. I hope its going some way into drying out the UK.
Feeling very unmotivated at work today, I really need to win that lottery so I can afford to work part time. If I had a pillow I'd be asleep on my desk right now!
Trying to inspire myself by trying to work out how I want the planting around the apple tree to be laid out... and indeed what plants I could grow there in the relative shade of the tree / green house. I've dug all the soil to dig in more fresh top soil and fertiliser for the tree (half of its roots area will be covered by slate) and the moss I was digging through assures me that its not the sunniest of spots! I wanted to put herbs like rosemary there but I'm now not sure it'll be bright enough.
Greenhouse was 1'C this morning and the pond partly frozen over. My poor fish are coming back from their holiday home this weekend all being well - I hope its not too much of a shock to them! We haven't any plants in it yet (non are available and I left my old pond plants at the other house) just plastic drain piping I've rigged up to act as an area for them to hide in.
