We have had a few rainy days so I used the opportunity to do some pottering in the greenhouse. A couple of plant offers were a crime not to miss so I was excited to plant up my purchases. However - being the enthusiastic list maker/organiser I am - the plants were labelled accordingly,for approaching planting plans. Sadly - being the blonde that I am one label was positioned in such a way the writing faded in the sun! I can however identify the plants by some research, ie checking the invoice, Echinacea Primadonna 'Rosea' was the plant, together with catmint, salvia and phlox.
I have been browsing some seed catalogues too and will sit down and make a detailed plan of the various ideas and thoughts I have for the garden - but whilst the weather is okay I will continue working outside. I have been working on the dry stone wall -
Here is a before and after....just a small preview!
The hens use this wall to get into the field next door to our drive - hence the chippings being flicked onto the drive. I have counted about 20 alpine plants which I have planted into the wall - plenty room for some more, infact I bought another 4 today! Rude not to!
Needless to say once the gals detected I was weeding they came along to help!
Looking back on just one week I can see my EFFORTS are paying off, or should that be our efforts, myself and the gals....egg production is up too!
