This week

The three communal woodchip bays are virtually empty at present so this week I’ve been able to reach the back of them to dig out and sieve several barrow loads of  good compost.

I’ve planted some crocuses Blue Pearl in the stone feature and  yellow/white daffodils in a large pot.  Both are covered with wire mesh to keep the pesky squirrels from digging them up.  I had to smile one morning as I arrived to see one eating a sunflower head.  Thankfully I’ve collected more than enough seeds so don’t mind too much.

The forecast is for heavy rain over most of the next two days so I guess that will finish off  the annual flowers such as the cosmos and nasturtiums, which have done so well this year.

I’ll be settling down with a cup of tea and a couple of biscuits to do some armchair gardening deciding what to grow, and where, next year.

Take care, and have a good weekend!

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the cosmos hang on a while longer, I’ve had them flowering well into November. My huge dahlia is still doing well, but the rain will make it very heavy, so it might be curtains there. It’s always good to look forward to next season isn’t it. I hope you have a good weekend.
