on Monday and moved it onto the new concrete slabs then secured it to one of the new compost heap pallets that it now backs against. The other two pallets were then replaced on Tuesday and I began clearing up, beginning with breaking up the old, rotten pallets to add to a bonfire that a plot neighbour will be having sometime soon. I was pleased that I picked a mostly good week or so to do this work, and that it went as well as it did.
Since Friday it’s been damp and dull so I’ve not been plotting, and it looks like remaining unsettled for much of next week. I had a quick look round this morning as I’d not been there since Thursday morning. There’s still plenty colour but the asters shown here had flopped over as I hadn’t staked and tied them. They’re also a bit tall as I forget to cut them to half their height in early July to avoid staking. Incidentally I know that the name Aster has been replaced by Symphyotrichum but I shall continue with the old one!
Have a good week!
