Wow DD 

That's some effort and well done for making the old lady cry, I mean that in a good way

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

Been in the garden all day, had to finish to get ready for hair appointment at 4pm, I mean its not polite to turn up in manky trousers, old trainers and dirty gardening gloves now is it

Set out this morning with the intention of planting up one area I had decided on, and did everything's always the same. I haven't changed my mind about intended planting either, it will just have to wait until after my haircut or probably Monday now since I find it difficult to pick up again after I've changed tact.

Bakery duties this weekend, if any of my customers so much as hints at politics, they'll be NO donuts

New here. 😊
