Our cheery postie delivered me a package today. I had completely forgotten that in a moment of madness I had ordered, from our local newspaper, 60 plug perennial plants, for £19.99.
Which have to be potted...immediately on receipt..
6 each of the above. Although I do not claim to be a plants woman I doubt the plant labelling list as the plant did not match the description, but we will see..
I haven't done any gardening for a long time. But I set myself up with a work station and set to. The DP provided the compost, the pots and the trays.
I sat in the empty chair and filled the pots, planted the plugs and wrote the labels.
Done. So if I can do that...I am back to gardening! Never, ever thought I would be. Lack of breath then the spine fracture etc. etc. Well chuffed.
The DP was applying the undercoat to the new walls in the shedudio.
He has since painted the other wall.
We have had no rat sightings for two days. The rat bait has been untouched.
Whilst sad to have to cause another living being's demise. I am so unstressed now.
I went for my .59 earlier in the day.
Wash and feather sorting .
I will not order any more stuff to plant in the garden as sitting there looking around I think there is plenty there that I have bought that needs potting on. Geraniums, Cornflowers in a bucket, who's daft idea was that Mr Marketing Manager. And daft for me buying said bucket..
Dont know what came over me.
