In the garden: spaces

I’m still slowly digging out a lot of plants from the garden, which means spaces. Yesterday I went to the garden centre for Thrifty Thursday, when they have a nursery sale which is terrific value. In spite of the drizzle, there were crowds of people there, loading up their trolleys. Not me, alas. I didn’t see anything I wanted. So I contented myself with my Privilege offer of a tray of pansies, which I planted out this morning for some colour. I made just one impulse buy: this pot of violas. Such a gorgeous colour. I haven’t planted it out but used a spare terracotta pot as a cachepot and put it by the door with the succulents. Much the best way to enjoy the flowers.
