Good morning. Bright and sunny again and warming p nicely. OH is out there strimming ready for the masons who are due to start on the foundations for our new shower room this week. I'm on boring old h*work and changing bed linen before carrying on with sorting pots and re-potting what I can.
I need it dry for the masons but wet to get the perennials in at last and sort out the shade bed which needs a serious rescue job - parched treasures and rampant weeds. Typical. We have 10 fat bags of multi-purpose compost to pour on it when I've got the weeds out and rescued the hostas and all sorts of bulbs to plant. It's about 3 Zafiras long and 1 wide so no small task.
Pat - I hope by now OH is home safe and enjoying his dinner and then a good sleep. Surely there are laws about setting fires now given what Oz knows about destruction?
Liri - it's like exercise isn't it? Best to work thru and keep the muscles and joints loose. Easy does it tho.
FG - sorry you're not out on the hills. Maybe next weekend.
We're off to an autumn show of craftsmen and women this pm - carpenters, stone masons, forgers and blacksmiths, sculptors and so on. Should be interesting and I'm told it's set in the grounds of an old manoir with a good garden.
