I have been having a lovely time in the garden. I forked out the bed after Mike did the digging and I planted out some new strawberry plants. I have also forked over the Delphinium patch next to this and replaced with more plants I had grown from seed last year.
This morning I have for the second time this year weeded the Asparagus patch. It was full of Aqueligia seedlings, which I have saved and may find a home for them in the front garden where they seem not to be as plentiful as I'd like. I also pulled out or broke off as many wild garlic seedlings as I could. The smell was lovely and whenever I do this I think of Jane a friend of many years who gave me a plant years ago and advised me to remove the seedlings that were growing in the pot. I said they would be nice in what was at that time a herb bed. She warned me I would regret it and as always Jane was right. However I have a lovely red Flower Carpet rose that Jane also gave me that she grew from a cutting and it flowers beautifully as well as having provided me with many cuttings and several other plants dotted around the garden and in pots.
As all three beds are covered with twigs to keep my neighbours cat off, why they can't c--p in their owners gardens annoys me intensely, I decided to post a photograph of my Pleonies which are doing nicely in the greenhouse.
