Long Weekend

On the drive to the train station this morning we drove past our local independent garden centre, its only wee but has all the essentials and a few extras, and its also only 10 minutes from home by foot. I noticed a new sign up saying they now have a tea room open, this got my very excited as i do like a nice cup of tea and a cake. I have Friday off work so guess where i am going to toddle off too for my elevenses? 😉

Not my photo, its from the internets

I may also have a look around for some hardy bare root Fuchsias and get them started in pots. I do love the big bright pinks, purples, whites and blues of the flowers and the big bushy green foliage, i think a few of these in the garden will really give instant busyness and colour by summer. I also plan to take cuttings from them when in bloom and grow them on in my greenhouse.

My Weekend list of things to do is getting bigger by the day. This is what I plan/hope to be doing this weekend.

  • dig over the borders
  • sow wild flower seeds into borders
  • weeding
  • bring down dead hanging baskets and empty them
  • de-weed the patio
  • cut down lavender and rose branches
  • tie up ramblers
  • make raised areas in borders with brick for the pots

That will do for one weekend 🙂
