Just a quick blog, I went market early this morning as I wanted to catch the garden stall before the world and his wife bought up the best and most popular plants.
I managed to get pretty much what I wanted Two Vibirnum and a Pittosporum.
I wanted a new Firethorn as mine got totally blasted by the frost I was devastated, as he was just maturing nicely and had lots of berries this year, also a blackbird was eyeing it up for a nesting site, after the previous shrub died, not a good spot I don’t think.
My poor Firethorn. I thought it would be quite snug beside the shed, but the wind does come down from the left. sigh The weather to-day is lovely, still fairly warm, and I really should be outside planting, but as I’m going out this evening I wanted to catch up on blogs and email, last night I wanted to watch TV [for a change] and I was ready for bed at 9.30. I know I’m taking a chance that the weather is going to be this kind for a few more days yet. I’ve got so much I want to do, I think it’s spring fever. I walked the dogs Stanpit Marsh Nature reserve to-day as it’s on the back from market in Christchurch,
A nice pleasant walk, You can either go across the recreation ground and past the golf course to Christchurch, or go on to the Marsh itself, I avoid that as it’s a bit mucky, also you must keep dogs on lead during the nesting season, , rightly so, but not much fun for them.
which the dogs hopefully enjoyed as a change from the beach, Well I’ve had a bit of fun experimenting with Live Writer on my desk top. Is there no end to my talents. ? 😉
