No gardening for me!

It has been sooo difficult looking out over the last while at some great weather. Unfortunately, I couldn't do any gardening and will not get to do any gardening this weekend or coming week. I had an operation so am not risking digging and dragging.
I did manage to get the back more or less sorted prior to this latest hospital spell. Since then, I have been able to walk around the garden and do light jobs like open the glasshouse in the lovely weather and water everything. A camellia I have for the last 4 years which never flowered decided to flower this year. Amazing what a serious talking to can do to an underperformer! I found giant alium bulbs in a bag a few weeks ago so I planted them then, not really expecting anything. But all of them are growing. My son gave me some bulbs for my birthday last November and all of them are up and looking great.
The cannas I kept indoors for the winter behind the downstairs loo got covered in greenflies. How do those buggers manage to get in? I hate greenflies as I always feel that they are crawling all over me. So I took the cannas outside and out there they are staying, regardless of the weather.
The front still looks a mess as I have plans to empty the containers in the front and plant in the border. But that hasn't happened yet and it will be a few weeks before I will chance manovering heavy containers around. It won't be the end of the world but it would be nice to have it sorted.
