Today I started swapping the pots with spring bulbs in for the upcoming lilies. Then I found that the undergardener had mowed the pinks that were just about to flower. Chelsea chop it was not. It looked like grass he said. So did the harebells last year. The blue poppies were decapitated the year before.How many times have I said if its in a border, leave it.
Then Mum phoned. She had an allergic reaction to an antibiotic. I then had to race up, give her an antihistamine, run her to hospital for prearranged x ray, sit at doctors for a gap for different antibiotics, then got home to find undergardener on a diet had found some fruit loaf in the freezer and accidentally eaten it.
So I have a large glass of wine, he has gone to play badminton with a friend, and pot swapping will resume tomorrow.
