It's been a beautiful day here today - warm and sunny with just enough of a breeze to give the washing line a good blow. According to the weather forecast this was going to be the only good day we are going to have this week so I spent most of it in the garden - weeding! Ground elder, couch grass, docken leaf, hairy bittercress, dandelions, mare's tail, creeping buttercup - we have the lot. And that's not counting the hundreds of sycamore seedlings that are popping up all over, even in areas I thought I'd cleared of them!
Once I'd removed the little perishers, I then set about finding a home for some of the plants that have been in pots waiting for me to find them a permanent home. With a little help from my husband,of course, we planted a Cornus Alba 'Siberian Pearls' and transplanted a hydrangea which was struggling under the shadow of a huge Berberis. To make way for the hydrangea, a couple of herbacious plants had to be moved too. Tete-a-Tete daffodils, a blue hyacinth and the Muscari 'White Magic' bulbs that were in pots by the kitchen door have been planted in the long border to make way for pots of herbs.
All in all it's been a long and busy day so it wasn't until late on that I found time to gather something from my garden so that I could join in with Cathy's In A Vase On Monday this week.
