Out for a look round the garden this morning to see what was out this morning, could hear this cheeping above me and there in the eves was a little bird peeping out of the mud nests. Some of the nests have been dislodged by the wild weather over the winter and this one is a bit broken looking. Wonder will it stay? This morning soaked the China Dragon Iris and Astrantia roots as per instructions on the packets, decided to take a quick trip to Lidl but was a bit disappointed no dahlias like last year however I did pick up a packet of Mon Amour and Nori gladioli tempted to plant them in the Nw bed it says April on the packets though. This afternoon potted up the China Dragon Iris and 4 roots of Alstroemeria orange now in the tunnel, more plants out of waiting to the NW bed edging the path with little pots of Plum Pudding heuchera, geranium no idea which one, Ladies Mantle, planted into the bed Astrantia Primadonna, aquilegia Barlow Black, one of my Sorbaria and Perwinkles Michaelmas daisy. Over the next few days the daffodils will be out and so the picture will start to change, one job that needs done is to straighten up the arch as the wind has blown it off line but I need some help and then the clematis and honeysuckle can be tied in for support.
