Room to Breathe

Spent the afternoon weeding and removing most of Daisy giving plants room to breathe as she was smotheriing perennials in this bed. Lots of selfseeded Verbena Bonsaris which I will leave as I love the way it rises so airily through plants, the euphorbia seedlings some will be lifted and potted up while others will stay insitu. The bed now looks a bit less colourful but at least now the liatris will be able to show off their beauty and a few more plants in waiting grown from seed will find a new bed when I can get more garden time. The one advantage of the rain is that removing Daisy was relatively easy as the ground is no longer bone dry. Dull day here today rained overnight however I'll be lucky to get into the garden perhaps for a hour this evening to continue work planting out in the south bed.
