Boy it's hot out there. Struggled to find a few things to buy at Ashwoods Echinacea Butterfly Kisses, Agapanthus 'Royal Blue', a nice purply pink Roscoea and Rudbeckia 'Summerina Orange' found their way home with me. For a change I know exactly where I want to put them so that might be a job for later this afternoon. Have to go and visit mum first.
Keep looking at where the gap will be when the conifers come down and hoping I'm doing the right thing. I popped and told the neighbours behind me that they were coming down on Tuesday, I was worried they might be going on holiday now the children are breaking up from school, and didn't want their cars left in the firing line. They were concerned they would be able to look straight into my garden and offered to go halves on the cost of cutting them back each year. When I showed her how wide they had become on my side of the fence she was very understanding and said she thought it would make my garden seem much larger and lighter.
Frank, those strawberry tarts sound lovely, have a nice day with the grandchildren.
BL thanks for the reminder re Tatton Park, will try and find it on catch up TV.
