Tuesday turn-around

Hi everybody

Sorry the title sounds a little cryptic – but what it means is out with the old and in with the new as far as our garden is concerned.

It is my last day off work and yesterday I helped Husband trim the back hedge being very careful not to disturb the robin on its nest of 3 eggs.  Also we removed all the pansies from the little raised bed into one pot keeping the best ones and disposing of the others.

Today we visited the local garden centre, purchased our chosen varieties and some that I haven’t tried before.  Returning home – we began planting.  The raised bed was to have Geraniums – Mixed colours at the back (they do not mind if it gets a little dry) and in front we planted African Marigolds in Vanilla.   The lavender we purchased last year is in full bloom.garden 5

The little area in front of the shed was to have French Marigolds and I moved some of the purple coloured pansies to the right around the trunk of the palm type tree – which by the way coming into flower.

Lobelia was planted in the Pieris Forest Flame pot and 3 marigolds and also in the Rhododendron pot just to add some colour in later summer.  The fern has unfuled beautifully.

Along the side fence I planted Nemesia in Banana Split and Sapphire Blue.  I’ve not tried this plant before so we shall have to wait and see.

Finally I took a picture of my Oak Tree which we moved recently and the root had grown through the bottom of the pot and we had to break it off.  I thought that maybe we had lost it but it has performed as normal so far, so touch wood, it survives.

Now we are exhausted and I am going to do some sewing.  The ironing will just have to wait!

Bye for now.
