I love Sundays, especially the mornings. It's just that feeling of everything being more relaxed. I am an early bird, so always up and about by early, especially at the weekends I think it is the excitement of having a whole day that I get to decide what I do. For me on a Sunday that is the best time of the day. Everybody is still asleep, it is quiet, yesterday, it was a beautiful morning, not a cloud in the sky and remarkably not windy. The forecasters said that it was going to be a sunshiny, warm, day.
Jobs for today are splitting up more seedlings and attempting a tidy up of the borders. So to start, seedlings to split up are Lobelia, I use the old favorites, Crystal Palace and Sapphire Pendula. Then I split up some HHA Asters, some more Phlox Tapestry, and some Anntirinum dwarf bedding.
I am still in the process of tidying the garden after last years dreadful weather and the long winter. I planted a pale pink shrubby Potentilla I bought last year. I put it in dappled shade in a dryish part of the garden on a slope. Although Potentilla likes the sun, I have found the flowers tend to fade in bright sunlight. I split some white Iris last year and grew some Lupins and Aquiligia from seed, I have planted these as companions for my Potentilla. I also planted a small rhubarb plant.
I then went into my train wreck front garden. Although I love this garden, and it gets the evening sunlight, but for some reason I am not so keen to work it as the back garden. Possibly because the Berberis I
planted some years ago is not quite high enough to provide me with total seclusion, but it is getting there. When, digging the borders I cannot now be seen by passers by, but I can see them, just how I like the it. I did some weeding. The soil is deep and loamy, but very free draining. A good soil, but even so it was very hard we have not had a lot of rain recently.
Absolutely shattered by the end of the day, so indoors to have dinner and watch a film.
Some Honesty, and Wallflower Aurora, I grew from seed last year.
