Been hot today. Not scorching but delightfully so
dug up my lavendar hedge today....20' or so and been superb for 20 plus years. Prob longer if I count. I remember Chris Beardshaw on BG telling us to dig such old bushes up and replant deeper. To me that is nonsense.....(upset a few CB fanclub groupies now ..ha ha). I think the hedge could actually have gone on a bit longer...it was superb again this year...but I will plant another elsewhere.
so I had a good bonfire with the lavendar....smoke everywhere,,burnt my fingers and I was told I "stank" of smoke.......so had fun . Had to relight it later but almost gone now.
took Spike to the river today....he meets all his chums there and those with treats. Water level high and, in his efforts to catch a ball thrown by a very sillee person, he fell into fhe river. He panicked a bit and started swimming the wrong way. Suffice to say muggins here had to drag him out. Spike, the car and me had a wet journey home. Soon dried off in the sun. He is a very old dog and should know better .
busy day cos cut lawns and moved a few plants. Divided a deschampsia and it will be fine
