Connie waiting patiently

Not a lot of garden time this while with teaching and the weather, have to take Conor to work some mornings so after early breakfast and a browse of garden.ie decided to head out into the garden first job was to water the tunnel, then loaded some plants into the wheel barrow planted out French Marigolds and purple cone flower beside Martin's rustic rudbeckia. Cut back more spent lupins and fritillery seedheads seeds ended up scattered wonder will they grow. All the while my companion was Connie lying watching every move was thinking of filling the water can to water in plants when on came the rain around 9am so gardening abandoned. Lots of heavy showers here and turned quite cold again not very summer like weather hope it warms up a bit not into mad heat but a bit of sun lifts the spirits.

You got a good bit done. I managed to cut back a few things today as well - Geranium phaeum mostly.

Weather has been atrotious here and trying not to get too frustrated with using up my annual leave this week.....

Connie is adorable. I seem to have spent forever this past few weeks getting trays of marigold, cosmos etc out.  So glad to see them in the ground.  I know the Lupins should take as i found a few in my borders.  Just shows you can weed to much some times.
