Yesterday was a beautiful day here. Sunny, warm and still. I planted almost all of the 1oo Allium Bulbs and 70 Crocus's.
This is how they will look. You have to dream don't you?
For the first time ever in many, many years, the DP has mastered the art of compost bins, and atop the planted bulbs was spread this lovely loamy compost. No pictures, as really, all it resembles is s***.
I then proceeded to prune an Escallonia to within an inch of its life. But then, you can't kill them can you? It had become extremely leggy with all this flowery bit on top, looked ridiculous.
I also pruned the roses and on standing back thought "Well you've managed to destroy them then."
But on checking the internet, they look just like this.
Which is the correct way! Impressed. As mine look pretty much the same.
Sith, meanwhile was being extremely silly. Cats get like this sometimes. He occasionally has a gallop round the house and does wheelies, or pawies under the bed. This day he decided to shoot up one of the trees.
What you do, is run up, toss your head to one side, and then, and then, you wonder how to get back down again. Hoping the human watching will go away so as not to set them off laughing.
This morning was a misty one.
But eventually I could see the washing still out from yesterday, and the sun came out eventually, and I then decided I had better bring it in. Damp, hey ho.
The forecast is for snow at the end of the week, preceded by something called red rain ? How can you get red rain from the Sahara Desert, and then Snow from the North?
