Turned into a lovely afternoon here - almost completely wasted through idleness. Still, did manage to trim the grass again and gave the shrubs for the new border a good staring at. I know where most of them are to go - don't know why I don't just get on and plant them and leave the 3 I'm uncertain about until later.
One of the roses I bought is a DA Roald Dahl. Really hoping it's much more of a soft apricot than a bright orange - or even worse - salmon pink. The euonymous which is a few metres behind it is looking very yellow at the moment and that could really jar unless I can find a foil for between them. Thinking of really deep purply blue salvias and aconitums at the moment and there are some other perennials which will be taller in a couple of months time. Decision decisions...
Sorry you bust your pot Runners. If it's a clean crack would a spot of araldite or super glue do the trick? If you put it at the back of a group of pots you won't notice the repair. Can you tell I have that particular t-shirt?
Frightened a bird out of her nest today Don't know who got more of a fright - her or me. Either a thrush or a blackbird - she was a bit quick. Checked again 10 mins ago - she's back - so no harm done
Used to like snooker (to be more accurate I liked Cliff Thorburn and my friend liked another player) and a small group of us used to go to the Crucible in Sheffield for the World Championships every year. Got to know some of the referees and chatted to a few of the players. I would now prefer to watch paint dry
