Woke up at six o'clock on the dot. I am still operating on Hannah Time but, since Monday, she has been driving herself to work. I've got a bit of a cold (Thanks, Rod!) so turned over and slept until eight. Wakened by strange noise coming from below. Tried to figure it out before realising it was a low but insistent yipping from our two guest dogs Frank and Dora. Time to get up.
Another day in paradise.
Which I spent in the garden, weeding, digging up plants and putting them somewhere else. After a while Bert came out to help. That man is amazing with a fork and spade but moves far too fast for me. There goes my verbascum phoenicum 'Violetta' discarded along with a dandelion. I repotted it. Next to be rescued from the weed pile pieces of my lovely yellow crocosmia. Although I don't know why I bothered as it actually does grow like a weed.
This is where I put Anna's sidalcea.
It had wilted a little but a top dressing of our own compost and a good watering had it looking a lot better.
Very much looking forward to seeing how it does in its new home. I couldn't resist doing a little bit of propagation. If it grows it grows. All in all a most enjoyable day.
