Wet, cold and windy.
The weather is still not good, but I am an all weather gardener. Today I have planted two trees, a Salix Alba which has wonderful coloured stems in the autumn and winter. Also a Rowan, I planted this one for the birds, as they will love the berries this tree gives so willingly. Always looking for a bargain I only paid two pounds each, so I was well chuffed. I managed to clear some of the beds of debris and cut some of the larger plants back. Not the ideal weather but I don't do sitting very well, I am an outside girl. I also managed while I was out in the garden to find plants that I havn't posted before. They made me happy, hope they have the same effect on you. The mason bees are still in the shed due to the bad weather, hopefullly it will improve soon, but its not looking good. Hope the sun is shining on someone somewhere!!!
