A warm, if somewhat cloudy day sees in the weekend. We’re off in to town later to enjoy a bbq in someone else’s garden but this morning we made time to do a few more things in our own.
I suddenly realised that the peas should probably be staked, especially as they’re all in a tangle and starting to blossom so cut down some bamboo canes and sorted that – a 2 minute job and they look so much better already.
It was also time to dig over our rockery area and plant an assortment of Heathers, Saxifrages and a Lavender, they don’t look much just now but once they’ve grown a bit, I think it’ll be a lovely part of the garden and a big attraction for bees and butterflies.
- The grass seed that we sowed last weekend is sprouting
- It looks like our ornamental cherry arch is about to blossom again (it’s already done so this season and only did once last year and interestingly, the flowers were pink this year and were white last!)
- The Rosebay Willowherb just never stops popping up – I’m weeding it out daily
- The fuschia buds in the hanging basket are starting to flower
