Decided to plant up free bulbs which had arrived while I was away. Got up on chair in sun room to look for bulb planter which wasn't there. While I was up there I started tidying and watering Cape Primroses that live on top of the cupboard; next thing a leaf broke off so I had to make cuttings of it; then I did cuttings of a white one a friend had given me. Then I spotted tiny cuttings of a white busy lizzzie that had rooted in water for me so I potted them up too.(I love white flowers) . Also did a couple of bits I had come by here and there. By the time I found the bulb planter in the shed it was time to go! Story of my life. At least I know where it is now.

Home from lovely walking holiday in Somerset. Great weather.Also visited Bath and Wells--Both well worth a visit. Garden not as bad as it might have been. Cut grass and did some dead-heading. Amaryllis has flowered while I was away.

Lovely day at last. Did more cutting and shredding and planted out a penstemon I grew from seed in the spring. Spotted this guy the other day-anyone know if it's a goodie or a baddie?

Planted out two dicentra that I "rescued" from a reduced rack in Woodie's last week. I hope they do as well as the one I rescued a few years ago. Of course I had to dig out, cut back and tie back several other things to make some space first! I got so involved I nearly forgot to put out the washing! Lots of weeding too; I seem to have buttercups everywhere.
