Yesterday morning there was a frost and, although it was quite sunny for much of the day,  there was a strong cold north easterly wind which dampened my enthusiasm for working outside.

Today there was another frost but the wind was slightly less strong so I armed myself with several layers of clothes and ventured into the garden to do some more planting. Several times I was happy to be distracted by George — we have a new game of playing with a length of Miscanthus sacchariflorus in and amongst some collapsing Molinia ‘Windspiel’. There are still so many gaps that need filling with plants and some that I planted today included osteospermum, Sesleria nitida, Kniphofia ‘Little Maid’ and Anemone ‘Honorine Jobert’. I barrowed some compost into the garden too, our soil is definately improving but its been 12 years of continuous hard work to make it better.

One memorable comment from a garden visitor earlier this year who was standing in the garden at the time—-‘I suppose this (she waved her arms about vaguely) looks after itself.(!!!!!)
