Phew! Temp got up to 27.9C today - at the moment it's 24.6C bright sunshine and white fluffies
Lots done today - two pots of Morning Glories potted and a dozen around canes in the front garden - quite gritty soil there so snails aren't keen on it - I shall put a slug pub nearby. Lots of cutting back done - most of the Sweet Rocket had gone over so I've cut them back, and the Aquilegia alpinas and irises too, and taken the last of the dead tulip leaves off. I'm always a bit reluctant to cut them all back, but when I'd done it I could see that the planning had worked - once the aquilegias were down the lovely pink of the DA rose Mayflower came to the fore, and the plummy and green shades of the astrantia - I love it when a plan works
I've also done lots of watering - this free draining loam is lovely most of the time, but the veg patch does need keeping an eye on or plants begin to wilt.
Now a curry of leftover lamb is simmering on the hob - ready in 10 mns.
