There was a lot of rain…

again last week so I only visited the plot a couple of times.  On Friday when I looked round it was clear just how soggy the ground is as there are a couple of small areas at the bottom end that look like chocolate blancmange.

The primroses, including these pink ones, in the long planter are providing the only colour, and  it’s good to see that there’s already new growth appearing on the sedums.


This morning it was the horticultural society’s Christmas party where there was a good crowd enjoying plenty of chat, food, drink and the raffle.  I’ll be back there tomorrow morning with a few others to help do the annual stock-take.  The trading shed will then be closed until Sunday 5th January.

Have a good week!

  1. The forecast this week looks drier so, hopefully, you should be able to manage a couple more trips if you want to. The Christmas party sounds like fun, hope the stock take goes well.


  2. I was trying to figure out what the sedums were until I read you post. What lovely color from the primulas. Your annual horticulture shed holiday get together sounds fun.


  3. For some reason, I thought I had commented already on this post…..obviously not.

    The Sedums look quite interesting in close-up. Primulas are a great extra delight when they respond as yours are doing by flowering brightly when most things are hibernating in one form or another. xxx


  4. Glad you enjoyed the horticultural Christmas party. I do wish the rain would ease off here too, along with the wind. Love your delicate sedums and that cheery
