Had a couple of days pottering in the garden, tidying things up without going overboard. My back problem is much improved, but can't do too much without it aching again, and I really don't want another bout of sciatica if at all possible.
My gardener came today and did a lot of work clearing a border which had become so overgrown it was disheartening to look at. An old ivy plant had strangled some of my favourite shrubs which had pretty much died off. I lost a lovely buddleia - used to love seeing the buttterflies on there, feasting on pollen - an aquilegia plant, a fern and a few other low growing shrubs. But - looking to the positive - I have a whole new border ready for planting up, so I'm busy deciding which plants to choose.
These are a couple of photos from a few years ago, when I had a lot more energy and kept on top of things :-
Much as I want to do more out there, common sense prevails and I'm taking a couple of days away from it to get some crafting done - there are some ideas in my head I'm itching to try out. I'm a typical Geminian - I flit from one thing to another!!
