What Was In The Box?
This morning after everyone was fed I finally got round to opening the big box that arrived yesterday
It was full of plants, it was an order I put in with J Parker in August, I knew it wouldn't be coming until November, I had actually forgotten about it.
I planted up the ground cover perennials
The ground is far to wet to plant them out, so i will grow them on for a few weeks.
In the box was also 6 lost label roses if we get a couple of dry days I will get them in the ground, it will be interesting to see what they are like next year.
There was also 2 free gifts dwarf daffodil bulbs and orange tulips, I think I may plant them in some containers to have on the door step.
We have had a lovely sunny day here almost spring like, hubby has been working outside in his t-shirt, The other day in the high winds we lost a strip of felting off the new shed, the stuff they send you is so flimsy a sneeze would tear it, hubby replaced it with something a bit more manly and put batons across the roof to prevent it happening again. He also put the hooks up for me so i could get my garden tools hung up
We will build a long bench under the window and i would like some shelves up on the other side, but there is no rush, I got a lot of the stuff moved into the shed
It all needs organising but at least it now in one place, and after getting this done I felt like I had really moved house, strange that, it must be getting all the stuff in its rightful corner instead of all piled in the barn.
Nik Nack still looks a bit of a mess today
I have been keeping an eye on him in case he rubs his head and starts it bleeding again.
I think it will take a while for his fleece to clean up, I did wash him down yesterday with a bucket of soapy water and got most of it out of his fleece.
Hubby is logging at the moment but the light is fading so he will be in soon, I have lit the log burner, about to go and shut the animals in for the night, then have a shower and we are having fish and chips for supper.
Lets hope tomorrow brings another dry sunny day.
