Above and below: On dry days last week, I got out in the garden - it was time to declare war on the Paul's Himalayan Musk. No before photos, but take it from me, it had got half way across the apple tree in the middle of the garden and was heading for the house! Action was needed.
I treated myself to this unusual plant at the Car Boot Sale last week ; - Podophyllum "Spotty Dotty". It likes shade. It has been transplanted into a bigger pot now it's home rather than being planted in the ground - you never know, like the roses it may eventually travel with us to a new home. I live in hope.
We went to two wet car boot sales this morning, but bought nothing. We have had a busy few days since Wednesday - Abergavenny Fleamarket and Tretower Castle & Court; viewing an auction; attending an auction for hours on end whilst the Other Half was doing a tiny Flea a few miles away, back to the same area yesterday to meet up with a client, and today up early for the car boot sales. Tomorrow is a bye day, and then the rest of the week is pretty well spoken for already! SO many things to get on with, but only one early start.
I've caught up with this week's Archer's Omnibus whilst baking a Chocolate Apple Ginger Cake for the freezer.
There are more Tretower photos but as folk seem a bit underwhelmed with them, I shall leave them. History isn't everyone's cup of tea. Right, lunch is called for.
