Evening all. All my trips to various places done, including carpet ordering for bedroom. Dried up here and quite cool so more digging done instead of housework. No pickaxe required today
Made sense to do it - ground all prepped now for gravel paths etc. I'll need a couple of bulk bags.
Have a good journey Lesley - think you've timed it well. Bit of rain to come this week so your plants should be fine.
Glad all went well for DD, BL. Must be a relief when it's over though.
I have a white border too obelixx. I like the calmness of it. Still a work in progress as one end is where I've been getting building work done. It's east facing, but gets some sun in the afternoon from spring to autumn. Dicentra, Thalictrum, Hydrangea (oak leaf), Geraniums, Foxgloves, Actea, Spirea arguta, Hostas, spring bulbs in cream/white, snowdrops, native primulas, Pachysandra, and other low growing stuff. Lots of different foliage shapes - mainly green, but some green/cream variegated things too. I'm adding a Viburnum and a few other things this year in the new bit. I think it's worth doing and experimenting.
I must look at your links. Your sewing will be slightly fancier than what I do at work...
Think you deserve a break chicky. Glad your Dad is improving
