Happy news LP. Congratulations to all concerned.
Been busy all morning pulling up mare's tail by the bucket load. It has really enjoyed this cool, wet weather. Not as many nettles and thistles as before in the big triangle so some good news. Ground cover roses (label lost years ago) and peonies and colourful ajuga reptans all doing very well and loads of lovely buds on shasta daisies, veronica, anchusa Loddon Royalist so lots to come in amongst all the shrubs and hardy geraniums.
Shrub and climbing roses dead-headed and fed, clematis tied in and fed, a wussy William Shakespeare dug up and potted along with two baby Kiftsgate ramblers. Marie-Christine has brought me a luscious shrubby sage with deep purple flowers and taken away a Kiftsgate baby. Do love a good swap.
I have planted out 7 rooted weeping willow cuttings along the stream in our very wet paddock and potted one up for my new pond and taken a cutting of our twisted willow for the new pond too. I did a dozen in March but ended up giving them all away.
Was minding my own business this pm dead head Teasing Georgia and Malvern Hills when the heavens opened without warning. Got drenched. I shall go and finish that job now.
Can't stand football and all the hoo-hah but very happy for Wales. Great result for them and for football.
