All Gone

I spent the day in the garden. And a glorious day it was too. But the forecast is for snow this weekend!

I finished mulching the long border and it took exactly the amount of mulch that I had bought.

If I have laid it correctly that means my long border is 60 m²!

I also did a bit of edging, with the spade, as the half-moon edger met its maker last year.

I found this little glory of the snow in flower in a pot. No sign of the 200 in the border yet.

Such sweet little flowers. But the tiny bulbs don't go far. I will look forward to the rest.
