I went to the garden centre yesterday, mainly to take mum out, because dad has decided to do some dusting. This consists of flicking dust around with a feather duster until it settles again. It was either a trip out or dig a hole in the back garden for the body.
Anyhow, the Garden Centre group has half priced all bulbs, so I added a few of those to the basket, Then I got a trolley because they had some nice glazed pots that would suit bulbs, and then I got a new Burgon and ball digging fork, because I broke the handle on mine. It was a present over 30 years ago so its not done bad. It will repair when I find a new handle, so I will have a spare. also it will come in handy for those "split a perennial with two forks back to back" moments. We had coffee and a scone, used some vouchers, and then headed back up the A38 to macarthur glen. A bit of a mooch around and then home to find Dad complaining he had not had a cup of tea all afternoon. I had better go and pot the bulbs up.
Have a good afternoon everyone, dont eat too much cake.(save some for me)
