5 hours of weeding and potting up. Barrow loads of weeds to the compost heaps. Found geum Mrs Bradshaw being swamped so dug them up and potted them and replaced with deep red hemerocallis with a yellow throat which will be much tougher.
Then found my dwarf white Michaelmas daisies were being swamped and eaten so they've come up and been potted - about 15 babies for a new white bed I'm planning. Now to find something to replace them with.
It is still cool and very bluster and very dark with low grey clouds. Supposed to warm up a bit at the weekend. I'll believe it when I see it. Despite all the wet the place is heaving with ants and I lost count of the slugs. They've even laid waste to the foliage on my purple phlomis this year. Yuk!
Off for a well eared shower now and maybe a glass of wine with dinner. OH has picked a load of redcurrants to have with ice cream.
