A Stitch In Time, too. With the kind of weather that's forecast for this weekend we need as much cheering up as possible.
I've mostly been out in the potting shed this week, or out in the garden when the weather permitted, and seeing the new buds and shoots has certainly put a smile on my face. We've created a new alpine bed - well, a mound really - to cover a difficult area caused by the roots of the old sycamore tree that grows on the boundary between ours and our neighbour's garden. Those roots made it impossible to plant anything and expect it to grow so Annie, the gardener we bring in for the really big jobs, suggested we do something like this.
