I haven't been able to fill the new pots yet. Before I get round to that I want to move the existing ones to their new positions, but they are too heavy for me on my own and I couldn't find anyone to help me out today. My new pots and plants are sitting on the patio until I can get some help, so probably tomorrow.
In the meantime I've filled the hanging baskets. I still have one to do because I only bought plants for four basket when I actually need plants for five so that'll be tomorrow's job. I've tidied round as best I could but it started to drizzle so I packed away and came inside for lunch. It's still trying to rain but not really amounting to much so I may have to go out later and water the garden.
I'm pondering what to do about the decking. I currently have raised decking and I know that I want to replace it with a stone patio. My original plan was to have a stone patio laid to the current height of the decking, so that there is no change of level when I walk out of the dining room or living room but then I have to step down to the garden. It occurred to me today that I could have the stone patio much lower so that I step down to get out of the house but then everything else is on the same level. The second option will probably be cheaper but I can't decide which will be more practical for me.
