Bit late I know for this thread - sorry
Had alovely day yesterday where we used to live meeting old friends and catching up on all the Goss - also lovely food a raspberry and hazelnut roulade to die for
Spent today mostly sieving compost - never done it before - what a time consuming boring job. Am now considering one of those sieves with a handle to speed it up.
Have planted plants, planted bulbs - packet of mixed white daffs from Morrisons for £2, will get some more as really good sized bulbs.
Planted up a container for the front - new departure for me - used daffs Rip Van Winkle (they look fun), Mixed iris reticulate (never ever grown before) and topped the pot with dark blue violas (again new as I grew them from seed)
Planted a glorious Aster - Marie Ballard just in front of lilac- just one plant and it haslifted the whole of that area, well pleased
Cooking dinner now . gammon with chutney sauce, own runner beans and potatoes followed by cup cake brought home from the do yesterday.
