Wet overnight but dry...so far ...amd warm now. The growth of plants overnight was amazing. No amount of watering can match a good downpour of rain. I think it will be a showery spell for us this week with the emphasis on warm dry weather.
Watched Chelsea show last night.....pleasantly surprised. Monty was excellent and the programme better than the usual coverage I think. Cleve West's garden is my style..........he seems to focus more on good plants rather than hardscaping. Have a good time all of you visiting Chelsea this year.
Over the weekend got most of the planting done........few cannas, dahlias, grasses, etc., looking for homes but they will be accommodated or will flower in their large pots. I took the opportunity to water the garden in anticipation of the rain so that the soil will absorb it better. A visitor thought it strange.....me watering yet clearly going to rain.
I'm sure the Bressingham trip will be brilliant so enjoy it you lucky folks going there today.
