The garden is a mess! Unavoidable as I couldn't do anything once the problem with my eyes reared it's ugly head, but things are improving on that front so it's time to tackle the weeds. And the nettles. And the thistles.
This is what it looked like a few days ago.
I've set myself a mini project to encourage me to work on this - by the end of June my aim is to have cleared the planting pockets you can see in the first photo and put down some bark or membrane to restrict the regrowth of weeds until I feel able to do the rest. I also want to tidy the rest of the pots and get them moved to their new positions (once I can persuade someone to do the heavy work!).
Since these photos were taken the roses have started flowering, as has the clematis and the other climber whose name I can't remember, and the crocosmia foliage is putting on a good show although no sign of the flower spikes yet!
Now a bit of a quiz ... do any of you clever gardeners recognise these plants please? I don't remember planting them but did throw some seeds down last year, or are they weeds and so need to go?
