I have had a busy afternoon in the garden today. I certainly ache now, but at least it is aching from some hard and successful work.
Three hanging baskets have been planted up.
30 pots have been planted - some of these with self-seeded foxglove that I needed to remove from my rose garden ready for the bark mulch that I hope to put down tomorrow.
This beautiful plant Senetti, Blue Bicolour, has been potted up. Apparently it will flower right through until November - so I have high hopes for it!
Some of the pots have marigolds in them.
This lovely plant keeps flowering year after year.
Some more pots planted up - they don't look much yet but hopefully in a few weeks time...
Love the colour of this pansy.
I also re-potted a rose - it was in a terracotta pot that had cracked and broken up.
My gorgeous fuchsia is also in a lovely big pot.
Hopefully we should have a lot of colour this summer.
Tomorrow's jobs will be picking up a new wooden bird feeder that we saw today but couldn't fit in the car. My MIL had given me some money for my birthday and I have finally decided what I would like to spend it on. I also hope to finish weeding the rose garden and start getting the bark mulch down.
Finishing the post with another picture of this lovely flower.
