My thanks to Glo, Porcelain Rose for this award that she’s kindly given me for doing 700 posts. The post A wintry plot where that was mentioned will be edited to show it, and thanks again to everyone who commented there.
In the early autumn as part of my flower growing revamp I dug up the 20 plus gladioli that I have in several places which, in the spring, I plan to replant them all together in a area almost in the middle of the plot, between the rosemary and a clump of crocosmia. They only flower for a short period but do look wonderful in full bloom, and they also have a certain poignancy as you’ll see from this post, I hope you like them, that I did in August 2010.
Next week looks like being cold, dry and windy which should help to make the ground less soggy, although with it only feeling around zero centigrade at best I don’t think that I’ll even be doing any pottering.
Have a good week!
