|However the future pans out for me and my home, the garden willneed to be done and looking good, and I intend to enjoy it as long as I am here. Illness resulted in nothing being done,so quite a lot of it,front and back, needs looking at. Hence all the plant buying to replenish and replace.|
I found a lovely new nursery not that far away this morning;only been open a year, but she had some beautiful plants. So, in the interests of helping out new local buinesses I managed to relieve her of some,plus a very beautiful pot. This was the result:
There are a couple of decent sized auriculas in there - great price at £3.99 - unnamed, but very pretty and well grown;also several black plants, and the prettiest clear lemon aquilegia for only £1.50. I also found a vinca I'd been hankering after for a long time -a very pretty white one, Gertrude Jekyll. I also plundered a couple of roadside stalls too - another blue Jacob's Ladder (a favourite of mine), foxgloves, primroses, ragged robin, a couple more yellow flowered currants and some others that I can't remember right now! lol
Now they all need to be planted, which will be a slow process at the moment, but an enjoyable one.In the coming week I will have to get going onthe edibles too. Just as well I like gardening, eh?
How is your garden doing so far? Would love to hear about it :)
