Had to start my day with a trip to the vet with Cosmos after all as he woke up snuggly but not purry and was favouring his back leg again. No obvious damage so anti-inflamatory jab and meds plus rest for 15 days. Ha! Had a toasted hot crss bun and coffee then headed off to the plant fair later than planned.
Very chilly in teh breeze and lots of tomato and other veg seedlings on offer plus some gorgeous irises - only 10€ - and peonies - 39€ and an acer for 125€. Yikes!
Decided to stick to more reasonably priced perennials which I'd either grown successfully before but not had room or time to bring bits with me, ones that had proved too nesh in Belgium and one or two that just intrigued me.
Epimedium Lilafee; Tiarella, Persicaria runcinata Purple Fantasy, Dodecatheon, Brunnera ack Frost; Podophyllum Spotty Dotty, Cornus Canadensis, Cornflower Amethyst Snow and Jordy, Pimpinella Major, Geum Totally Tangerine, Mukdenia rossii aceriphyllum, Geraniums – Anne Folkard, magnificum anemoneflorum, Rozanne, Salome and Victor Reiter Jnr
Just watering them this pm and then staying warm as I have a hurty myself. Right palm blocking up with spasms up my forearm so rest for me too and maybe a doc next week.
Busy - you sound very organised as ever.
Chicky I love carrot cake and have several recipes including ones with cardamom spicing, banana, chocolate.......... Let me know if you're interested.
