Good morning. Big fat grey things here but also some blue bits. Breezy but not too cold.
I have been out and checked my treasures for being water logged or windswept and all is well and picked some Munstead Wood roses for a posy - why are the flowers so floppy and droopy? Me or the plant? There's a broken stem of clematis Jan Fopma I shall try and propagate. It's suppsoed to have chocolate scented flowers so I'm hoping its new home will let me enjoy that and it can't hurt to have lots of it.
FG - the bird is a green woodpecker and they eat ants so I suspect our weedy gravel was the driest place around yesterday for hunting them out. I hope it comes back. Haven't seen or heard any spotted woodies here yet.
If the breeze drops I shall be naughty with the glyphosate and kill off the forest of weeds so I can mark out the new dry beds. Left everything growing to see if there were any treasures but there's just a few coronaria, one or two daffs and, under the fig, some rather lovely pink and white aquilegias.
If not, pottering and sowing. Have a good one all, whether at the coalface, out to play or in your garden.
