All I need to say about the weather today is that it is downright cold. Any tender plant which has popped its shoots above ground must be seriously thinking of popping back down again. But we have had several downpours, which has meant I have not had to water my new plants. And still on the garden front I have a great pile of rockery stones I don't want and which are heaped up at the end of the garden. This morning my hairdresser happened to mention that they are building a rockery in their new garden. Problem solved.
The Mares tail weed which grows rampant in my garden has not yet appeared but I am sure it will. My gardener has one more application of the specialised weedkiller left and will put it on when the time is right (when the shoots are a certain length). The label says it will take five years to kill it all and that perhaps it is best to cover the whole area with ground cover and live with the wretched weed. I am still thinking on that one. But at present that corner of the garden is left clear and empty.
Must away to check my market shopping list for morning. See you tomorrow.
Update at seven in the evening. We have had a massive thunderstorm with downpour. Plants flattened, but now the sun is out again they are beginning to recover. Still plenty of black clouds around though.
