Oh what a beautiful morning I've had - I'm so happy I feel quite 'emotional' I've got all the currently bare bit of veg patch dug over and OH has done the edges where the tree roots are. There are buds on the Polka raspberry canes, and little primroses smiling around the ash trees. OH has weeded his garlic and we sat outside under the big ash tree for our morning coffee - I could smell the perfume from the violets! I've raked up most of the twigs that the storms brought down onto the lawn and I'm a happy gardener
My back is sore but I'll have a hot shower in a bit - that'll help that. I find it hard to pace myself in the garden as I used to be so fit and could dig and pitch bales and lay hedges all day - then I had a gap of 18 years without a proper garden - now I expect to be able to pick up where I left off, forgetting that I'm not as fit as I was But this morning, Happymarion was an inspiration, and I went back out there and just got on with things and got the jobs done that needed to be done. Thankyou Happymarion
OK Gg , I'll sort the plants out later in the week when I work out what I'm going to package them in - I'll let you know when I've posted them - is there someone at home all the time or does your postie know where to leave things?
