It is almost ten in the evening before I get a chance to read down my side bar, read yesterday's comments, write a response and then, finally, get round to posting something today. I always do it in this order as a matter of habit - I love reading your comments - they are often so helpful and so enlightening. Thank you for them all.
I went out for a look at my tulips coming up this morning - I would guess about half of them have been very neatly excavated and eaten. I refuse to be cross or disappointed. Something is staying alive by eating them and I shall put something else in the border as the year goes on.
My electrical work is finished as is the bathroom ceiling - now it is just the car service and then I can relax for a while. During relaxation I shall be thinking about a little patch of lawn just outside the fence but in my front garden (which at present is grass but I wish to change to make a bit of interest). The space is only about ten feet square and I would like to put just a few dwarf shrubs in.
I have two conical shaped dwarf box bushes which at present are in terra cotta pots - but they have blown over so many times over the winter that the pots are now smashed to smithereens - so they will go in for a start. Any suggestions anyone - I probably only need about three more.
