I'm mucky again. Been potting up spare hostas in newly liberated ceramic pot to make a teeny display on the north facing terrace. Decided my scented leaf pelargonium (used for infusing cream for ice cream) can go in a proper pot on the terrace and no longer be a house plant and have sown trays of alyssum, California poppy, pheasant's eye and cosmos to use as fillers plus some Pam's Choice foxgloves to grow on for next spring. Need to buy more seed trays now.
I've also split a very frothy flowered saxifrage into over a dozen wee rosettes and a big sanguuisorbia has now become 5. Fingers crossed they all take.
Looks like rain is on the way so I'm in for a mug of decaf and then a shower while a pastilla cooks for dinner.
Funnily enough Hosta, we have become a stopover spot for people on their way to or from points beyond. The next lot are spending 4 days here between other friends and rellies near Pouancé and Bordeaux.
Bob - do show us a pic when it's up. I was looking at Rhinos before I decided to get a polytunnel instead - 4 times the size for the same price including a green mesh removable cover. Just waiting for the weeds to die before putting down the central path and planting goodies.
