Evening all, lovely afternoon in the garden, nothing major accomplished but lots of ‘roundtuit’ jobs, including turning all three compost heaps, two looking lovely, one might need some of that ‘hurry up’ stuff.
Also gave my damp dark corner a really good hose down, cleared all the rubbish away and planted up some tubs with the cyclamen and heurchers I bought last week. And of course planted my bargain rose, lots of manure thrown in the hole and the best compost I have, give the poor thing a fighting chance.
Spent 15 minutes coaxing Marmalade out of the cat flap with a sausage, poor cat just couldn’t pluck up enough courage to come out or work it out. The outside entry clicks when he goes near and releases slightly, think he might be waiting for the same to happen from the inside. Have moved more plant pots around exit so he has more cover and tomorrow will have another go with Charlie on the outside & me on the inside helping him a bit. Have sprayed Feliway all around too so that might calm him. Poor cat.
Quiet evening in tonight (gym class on half term too) hurrah.
Clari – enjoy your ghost hunt; hope they find one or two.
Lots of clematis action on here today, think I will go to Lidl and get one (or two), very useful plants.
Wintersong and Bekki, think you deserve a restful evening too, hope you get one.
Panda – enjoy guides, sounds like fun.
Hosta – definitely an improvement but don’t be over doing it, you might have to have another exotic holiday.
Pdoc – bad day, always tomorrow.
Oneofseven – beautiful crocus, beautiful, in about 5 years I hope mine will have naturalised to such an extent.
Dove - hope you feel better tomorrow; this set back thing seems to be quite common.
Kef – Charlie says hello back too, asking all sorts of questions about all of you actually and why we have such strange names.
Have a lovely evening all, seems I am required to participate in a game of chess, Charlie loves it, me not so much and embarrassing that I have to concentrate so hard with a 7 year old.
