At my local garden centre I got a 1/2 price hydranga petiolaris well the other one was lonely? – and 60 litre bags of garden organic compost was also 1/2 price must have been be kind to customers day! and I bought a load more bulbs while I was there. Spent the afternoon planting. Now I have three bags of compost awaiting plants well thats my excuse.

I've noticed too that the birds have been away recently and today I saw a blackbird in the garden - the first time for weeks. It is lovely to see them back. Good to have got some great bargains too!
