Missing Dove's cups of coffee, suppose I will have to make my own

No rest for the wicked

Very Verdun but getting near the end now 

One border left, the raised bed plus a few gaps 

I've worked hard every spring for a few years, will be odd not to have major work to do although OHs wallet won't suffer so much

Wanted to plant up my raised bed in passageway, now that I have decided what to put there but got distracted

  • Planted 4 Penstemons and mulched
  • moved 3 Astilbes and 3 alchemilla mollis that were in the way
  • planted one Hellebore
  • planted up pergola borders with 3 Box balls, 1 Clematis, 5 Lavender and filled gaps with clumps of Chives (cheap and cheerful)
  • lots of mulching
  • positioned some propagated plants ready for planting
  • fighting slugs all over my Clematis
