Been to the allotment and planted the currants. It's horribly sticky down there again, after being not too bad at the beginning of the week - stuck to my fork, stuck to my spade and stuck to my boots. I was nearly in tears.....
Then it started raining.
But at least I managed to dig up a baby thorn tree that I've had marked down since I moved in! And a big clump of ornamental grass - I think it's Stipa tenuissima, or similar - which I shall give to the chap who gave me the manure. Much as I like grasses, the allotment is not the place for it. Although I do plan a bit of a flower patch as I have no garden at home.
