Had a bit of a lie in this morning - 6.30 (lol). Steve and I headed to Ratoath as soon as they were open. I had ordered a beautiful acer a few months ago and had been notified that the delivery had come in. After seeing the same one planted up outside the garden centre last year, I knew it was meant for me. So I have been plaguing John not to forget me when they arrived. The foliage is only beginning to emerge, so that gives me plenty of time to choose a really nice pot. And while I was there, I also picked up a few other things, mainly for the front garden.
My selection was;
Hemerocallis 'Golden Zebra'
Helleborus ericsmithii 'Bob's Best'
Leucanthemum 'Sunshine Peach'
Lithodora diffusa 'Heavenly Blue' (Lost this years ago. Must remember to plant in acid soil)
Saxifraga 'Peter Pan'
Sedum album Murale.
Acer Palmatum 'Red Pygmy'
And the best part of the visit today was that no money exchanged hands. I had a good voucher from Christmas.
I was so intent on admiring the front garden this afternoon that I FORGOT to do anything. Seriously!!! lol
Back to work tomorrow. Weekend work will be starting very soon and I'm NOT looking forward to that. :(
