At the nursery sale
Today was much better. There was the usual snaking queue, just like a jumble sale, and people chatting in a friendly way to complete strangers (well, I was). This time they’d used a different area of the nursery so the plants were on benches in a great circle, easy for people to filter past. I bought: Astrantia ‘Buckland’; Thalictrum ‘Evening Star'; a dark pink dahlia for late colour. All for £8.00. Win! It’s quite a social event for me as I have so many horticultural friends and acquaintances, I’m sure to see someone I know.
Now I’m wiped out because I put in all the new plants plus another I bought last Sunday. It may not sound much, but I had to dig out some tough stuff first and I also tipped two sacks of home made leaf mould on the beds and dug it in to give the new treasures a better start. Phew, I deserve to loll about listening to the cricket.
