  • PLanted up front edge of border with Juniperus Blue Star x3 next to a bulk of Potentilla nepalensis
  • found perfect spot for established clump of Liatris alba
  • Added one more division to new clump of Kniphofia
  • re-arranged new clump of sisyrinchium striatum
  • mulched
  • Planted Clematis Vit. Black prince
  • One post hole still waiting to be dug (that's much less fun)

Okay, everything is going to plan so far...finished front edge of large border in middle garden, going back out to touch up shade border in the bottom garden and re arrange a small planting I did the other day that looks well...pants really.

But! But...its getting there oh yes and I found the perfect spot for my troublesome Liatris alba clump. For three years its travelled round the garden not looking its best and finally, I've got just the spot for it. Isn't it weird how that happens, a plant can look fine or it can look amazing just depending where its put

Plans for today, planting three Juniperus Blue Star and three Euporbia purpurea (here's hoping I don't change my mind) oh and an established clump of Liatris alba that need more sun. Just figured out where that ones going

Also have a post hole to dig, vet food to pick up and house tidying to do since we are expecting visitors at the long weekend
