Chilly, but sunny in Kent,although quite wet from heavy rainfall overnight. I emptied my wooden crate 'Nanna's Garden 2011' as Cosmos and Amaranthus (which had performed beautifully from seeds sown by my youngest granddaughter) were past their best. Tidied the border edges, lightly pruned back long shoots from climbing roses. Yesterday I emptied one of my three compost bins, raked leaves off lawn, planted Iris Reticulata in shady corner of garden and planted orange tulip bulbs in blue pots for patio. Still so much to do, but it's half-term here this week, so will be looking after grandchildren and my sister is visiting from Spain, so after tomorrow gardening will be put on hold until next weekend.. Also, I've ordered the 50 free tulip bulbs from GW (T&M) so will be deciding where to plant them.
