Alison's candelabra primula

Alison's candelabra primula

A relatively easy day for me. I didn't get to do a whole lot.

But I did weed the hill to the side of my garden, which is awkward and requires scaling the 20ft hill and pulling out brambles and other weeds (no mean feat in gardening clogs).

Wouldn't it be great to be finished the weeding by the time the Chelsea Flower Show started?

Well, if that's my goal, I'd better get a move on. The preview is on Sunday night!

Im sure weeding your hill is quite a job! Thanks for the reminder about Chelsea on TV. I can never get enough of it!

Love the primula striking colour, must remember to watch Chelsea preview. I don't know how you manage to weed on a slope in clogs I tried to weed in a pair yesterday and it was a feat just to keep my feet in them and my bed isn't that steep.
