Have just logged on and missed OL's news... great luck to you and OH. Trip to Wisley on Tuesday which is looking particularly good at this time.
Still working on new terrace. Raised beds around trees now filled with soil. Silver birch bed potted with Festuca Elijah blue and mulched with slate. Ash bed filled and will plant with Carex testacea, which is an orange/bronze colour. New troughs filled too, awaiting alpines, some bought at Wizzers.
Today is HW, visitors at weekend; making a batch of soup for friend , who is having major dental surgery tomorrow; and work on village calendar for 2015. Nearly finished, just needs pushing over the line.
Have a few plants to plant first thing as rain is forecast. Rudbeckia and blue scabious to complete the bed I dug out last week.
