What a glorious day of gardening I have had. Firstly, while I was busy in the butterfly garden my neighbours, husband and wife today,were painting the new wall cream and my flowers are looking so good with the cream background. Then in the middle of my hard work I realised the soil I was cleaning of bindweed and blackberry roots was a beautiful black loam whereas , before I supplied it with loads of horse manure, it had been a very hard clay. No patch of black loam has ever been welcomed as much as this was. The forecast is for a week of such brilliant weather which means my birthday on Tuesday will be celebrated in the garden. Two parcels and a card arrived this morning, three days early!
