Good morning all - lovely sunshine and blue skies here - hopefully your fog will disappear soon!
A few little jobs to be done today and then .......... gardening but firstI shall have to pop up to the GC to get some bags of manure for the new border at the front as I've some plants ready to go in there.
Our trip to MIL's was lovely, and I managed a trip to the GC in the next vllage which always has good climbers - I've been unable to find a Lonicera Serotina (for the trellis next to the seat by the back fence) around here, but I got one there - and a Clematis cirrhosa Freckles for the front border, and a Campsis Radicans to go in a large pot on the terrace and grow up the fence by the studio windows. Oh, and a Pulmonaria Opal and another carex
Then we visited Nut and her OH. We sat by the pond and drank coffee and nattered, then had a lovely lunch of delicious home made quiches and salads, before walking around the gardens with Nut who dug up plants and filled every nook and cranny of our car with native hellebores, iris foetida, hazels, ramsons, white comfrey, arum maculatum .......... think there was something else ..........
Some were planted immediately on our arrival home, before I even got into our house, others have been popped into pots or wrapped in damp newspaper and put in cool dark corners until later on today. Very generous Nut - thank you so much
Another coffee needed here ........ anyone got the kettle on or shall I make it?
