Ordered  Hellebores from Johnstown at the dead of night on Tuesday and they arrived this morning!!!  Some service.

Double Queen mixed.

Arrived Lidl about 11am to day and got two Double Ellen and one Single Ellen.

These are to the foreground of the second picture.  Here there are the plants so kindly given at Johnstown meeting and  a delivery from Deelish nursery.

So the Piggy Bank is now in debt and  no more plants for 14 ...................June, there may be a few pence in it!!!

I lived in the corner of a field!!!  Sorry for the dreadful image but tried to take a photo from Google World. It does give an idea of the situation of my abode.

I went out to day all eagar to plant stuff, warm clothes, rainproof clothes but had to retreat when my hands , with gloves, turned to icicles.  Very windy and so cold.

Yep that is my new title.

I showed,a few weeks ago,  a view of new steps in a boundary bank as there is a lovely view from the top of the bank. That was to be the end of it. Haha wrong.  I have since decided that to match somewhat the hot border on the other side of the path that some suitable planting needs to take place in the bank area. So the front of the grassy bank is going to be built up with sods taken from the back of the bank. Then this will be filled with manure, compost etc and be ready to receive lots of hot plants. BUT I will get someone to do the digging while I stand around issuing orders and deciding on the planting scheme. !!! I like this idea.  The photos show the steps ,yet to be finished, and the new planting area from both directions.
