It has been beautiful here today.....hot this afternoon and still,blue skies. Just 8 miles away, in Helston, they had rain and cloud. Funny county, Cornwall, the weather can be so different just a short distance apart. . It still feels very warm.
Went to see a nursery to check on her stock and we always chat. We exchange ideas , etcreally our mutual enthusiasm rubs off on each other. ,
Almost finished my new bed......dug up parts of a large clump of hackonechloa and planted 3 together to balance. It looks like they have always been there so pleased with that. Couple of lilies, tulbaghia as a trio, and artemisia Powys castle have almost finished the jigsaw. Just a,couple more agastaches, verbena bonariensis and another helenium....ooo, and echinacea marmalade......to go in. (have them growing in 3 litre pots) but large plants of stocks are still looking good there for mo and pushing out clouds of perfume.
Hardening off runner bean plants too....prob go in end of,the week
Good to see you back Matty. And with such good news too
(our local weather girl has just apologised for the wet weather today! Looks like most of Cornwall has been wet. Mind you, I did put up a notice for no rain today )
