Braving the elements

Was chatting to Clara this morning and she was saying the Southside was a good morning. Not here though. After shopping I got out togged out for the elements regardless. I spent a bit more time planting up stuff on the new Pond Bank, like an un-named Sedum that has already seeded from a previously planted plant, Crocus 'ruby giant', white Forget-me-nots (Myosotis), and Fritillarias. Also planted the Alliums 'purple sensation' that I got the other day into the greenhouse border. They will accompany my Thalictrum and ..........brain dead...... can't think of it. I'll edit this tomorrow. Anyway, they are lilac, so will be lovely together.
Planted up Iris hollandica into a pot as I am a bit limited with where I can plant them right now. Potted up my new Camellia and took it out of the ferocious winds. After all, it's only a baby! And filled up the bird-feedBibers again. They are hungry little beggars.
