Why didnt daughter & me go to Bodnant today? Weather forecast for tomorrow now awful! Wednesday better, but I have hospital appointment! So waterproofs & wellies/hiking boots to the ready. It may be better around the middle of the day, hope so.
Anyway went to GC & I got a replacement voucher- it is now at the side of my bed, along with all my appointments in chronological order & clipped together! I do not intend to misplace this one- still think original will turn up with OH's papers........
As usual we trot to the reduced section & the 50p lupin, showing a good bit of new growth, is now planted out! Copper ring around it too, as now have all the dahlias in the pots. I have already had to move one pot to other side of patio, which seems to allow it to start regrowing without further attack before I move it back to it's original position, where it gets attacked again....you get the jist.
Was horrified at the full price of perenials at the GC. Noway will I pay that! Have started a Tatton list, which although plants there have gone up in price over the years will still cost less per plant than at that GC. This is where I miss a little nursery/GC at Dad's village. Oh well, never mind. J.
