Rose Double Delight & Chives
What a beautiful day it was - in Wexford at least. Had to take off my cardigan when weeding. I do hope that good weather is back.
I think Rita's magic worked for me yesterday because everything seemed to go much better. Even spraying for aphids in the greenhouse didn't seem so bad. I got a good bit of weeding done and even went around with the old paintbrush, dipped in Gallup, to get the scutch grass, bindweed etc.
I just hope I didn't dab weed which I've moaned about before (still don't know its name). I painted it before but I must have missed a few strands so hopefully I got them today. If I loose a plant, it will be small price to pay for eradication of these persistent weeds - if I manage to eradicate it...
I now also have sufficient plastic membrane to put down over the newly dug area, where I am dividing the garden in two and creating an area for my mother. It is a relief to have the membrane and there are no weeds popping up as yet so hopefully I will get the membrane down tomorrow. Some more photos of this area in my "new borders" album.
