Wet Thursday.


By marge


I have been a good girl today, been out gardening in the rain!

I have dragged my little plasic greenhouse out again, and got my gerainums packed into bed. The strawberry plants have been lined up in their containers in my sheltered area.

I used to be very active with Bonsai Trees (had a collection of a couple of hundred at one time, but now down to a dozen or so). . I I used to specialise in the tiny Mame Bonsia. The ones I have left are a bit bigger and more or less look after themselves once they are in their winter quarters, it only remains to put them into plastic trays as the weather gets colder.

I have re-potted my Forsythia Bonsai, which flowers in February, just to give him the hint to start doing something. The varigated Ersimum has been re-potted and gone into shelter.

It is pleasing to have actualy got done what I wanted to do a week ago! I can feel very virtuous tonight – earned my glass of wine!

You deserve to feel virtuous, Marge! We had a drizzly day again, so I only potted up my baby Lilies and cut back two plants. We did do the weekly shop as well, though!

It's nice you were able to get a lot done in spite of the weather.
We've had a dry day here and I was able to do quite a lot too.
