I had a lovely time at Cooper's garden this morning. Boy have her perennials come on since the last time I was there! And not a weed in sight - not sure how Linda manages that with this rain.
Unfortunately due to the recent Mullingar plant swap, both myself and Headgardener were cleaned out so had no plants to bring her. All I could offer was some orchid bark for potting on the recent acquisitions from Rita D and te lend of Gardens Illustrated.
Linda produced her now-famous chocolate squares although, if I'm not mistaken, she was pressurised into baking this time by Headgardener. He had hinted that, even if it rained, we would still have Linda's cakes to look forward to. No pressure! I guess that's what happens when youset the bar so high, LInda!
On a different note, and prompted by Gismo's recent journal, what do you make of this fellow, found yesterday in my greenhouse? At first the hubby thought he was one of those 'pot ornaments'that I love but, when I saw him, I knew immediately that he wasn't.
Hubby picked all the Pak Choi today as it was about to bold and we par boiled it and froze it. Hubby then planted fennel seeds in the space vacated in the raised bed.
