Here is Litchfield Angel finally planted and very happy to be so too! It took me an age to get all the invasive roots of one particular garden thug out and they are still there, under the black membrane, creeping towards the light!
Near the front gate, where my little intake plot is, two more tubbed roses finally got planted - Raubritter to the left and Tuscany Superb. I've also been weeding back along the path. I won't use weedkiller, so this is always a laborious long job.
By the apple trees, is a very pot-bound shrub (name forgotten) which my friend Annie's daughter Lizzie bought me when we took her to Hay. I had been intending to take it with me of course, but now I shall just take the ceramic planter it was in - which has a bee on it, in honour of Annie, who was a very good bee-keeper.
Finally, a little progress in the former vegetable plot. You can see you slightly darker rows - those are peas. I hope I have kept them moist enough to germinate properly. I watered them three times today to make sure. There is a threat of thunderstorms and heavy rain in the next 24 hours, so that might give me a day off my watering duties.
K has since cut down the Himalayan Balsam at the back and done some more clearing up that end, bless him. We're getting there . . .
