Saturday 3rd September
|246/365: can't remember the name of this flower, part of the bouquet|
We finished watched the Reacher series last night. I thoroughly enjoyed it and hope they hurry up with the second series they're currently filming. Thursday night I also caught up with all the TV programmes I'd missed so I've spent a lot of time with my eyes fixed to the TV screen this week ... I think the weekend will have to be TV screen free!
M came to sort out the garden yesterday and it's now looking a lot tidier. Some of the summer flowering perennials have been cut back but the annuals in the pots and hanging baskets, though looking patchy after the excessive heat, are for now still going strong. We've started talking about spring bulbs, so that's exciting. I don't need many new ones this year, just three of the blue pots to refill and some naturalising tulips to add to a couple of the flower beds, and maybe a couple more of the big alliums. The pink rose was removed and has gone to the Mencap garden that M maintains, and it's possible that the older white rose may have to be replaced as well, but we plan to wait and see how it does next year. I'll probably wait until spring to replace the pink rose as I'm not sure whether to go for another rose or maybe a clematis, or maybe something else.
There's nothing in the diary for today so I want to get on with placing the rest of the adverts for the remainder of the decluttered items. Being without a fully functioning laptop has put me behind so I'm devoting the weekend to getting back up to speed on that project now my laptop is all singing and dancing again!
