......what you can get done in 2 hours at times. Tonight I headed out to the garden from 7.30 to 9.30 and I managed to get the following done -

Sowed some Virginian Stock seeds in the trough with the sweetpeas

Sowed some pots of White Lady runner beans 

Watered some plants in the greenhouse

Put fleece over some pots of Dahlias

Watered some shrubs which have been moved recently

Sowed Autumn King carrot seeds and planted parsley and marigolds nearby

Pruned a large Hydrangea aspera Villosa and a Hydrangea macrophylla

Planted a Veroncastrum

Took a few photos at dusk

I am a genius at pottering and have often not got that much done in a whole day. It must be the good weather and the glorious sunset!

Wow, that's a lot accomplished in two hours Moya; you must have been racing around like a mad thing!  Seriously, well done, it would have taken me most of the day.

That was a brilliant couple of hours. And it's great to see some daffs still on the go. My N. 'Green Eye' are the only ones left in flower at this stage, and they've now turned almost white.

Moya your last paragraph sums me up too. I could be there all day and still not have done what I really should have! But you certainly were on a mission and it's been great  to be able to get out there too. Bet you were very happy too ;)

Good work. Sometimes it just clicks like that. Bet you went to bed happy!

A woman on a mission, well done.

Fantastic, Moya, well done!

Thank you kind friends. I skipped my Salsa class and so had to justify the time! My usual modus operandi is slower and less focused.
