for the past few days, although there was some rain last night, so I’ve been mostly pottering rather than plotting.
Sadly the tulips are already well past their best, as are the white narcissus ‘Thalia’. I was given a handful of unknown variety daffodils last autumn which I planted in a container and are only now flowering.
I’m pleased to see how well the strawberry plants that I recently replanted are doing, one has got a flower on it.
I don’t think that I’ve mentioned I have a black willow (Salix gracilistyla ‘Melanostschys’) which I planted by the log pile. It’s in a sunny spot and the ground tends to stay slightly damp, which is ideal. At present it’s about six inches tall and should only reach ten feet in ten years.
Next week will see breezy and cooler weather which will suit me as I want to plant the rest of the potatoes and cut the grass paths.
Have a good week!
