We manage to catch a nap after breakfast on the plane.
We get off this Flight No. 2 and have no trouble finding our Continental flight to Quite. Through the line ups. We each have a light carry on bag. We seem to have packed properly and do not lose anything going through the checks.
In my garden yesterday I managed to get the shrubs on Parmar's side of the house clipped back. Dug out self seeded holly trees, dandilions and blackberries. Cleaned up the clippings and have a wheel barrow full for the compost bin. It was raining and I caught a chill, but am happy to have this done. I have a camas growing in pure clay by the chimney. It is underplanted with bishops weed, and has a back drop of the deep purple Jackamani clematis. This little corner has a Japanese anemone, the pink Simplicity rose and the burning bush to screen their garbage cans from my front entryway. In front of the rose, the boxwood hedge begins at that end.
In my Garden today, I planted out most of the alpines I had purchased at the rock and alpine show on Saturday. Since we are going to be away, again this summer; I put the tiny drabas, and others, right into the small rockery. I am hoping they get established by July and will survive. I used up a bag of sand, and a bag of pea gravel, as well as a bag of compost. I have yet to plant the fussy ones. The pleiones, a daphne and a blue poppy. These really should go into pots, but I do not want them drying out, so I will put them in the ground and hope they survive. The pleiones need spagham moss to grow in. The daphne is going to grow to 5 x 5 so it needs a spot with good drainage yet moisture retentive. The little rockery is too small for it. It may have to take pride of place in the front by the little rock wall. Maybe the pleiones and the blue poppy can be in the same area. I have a lovely little silene and a few other little rock plants in the area.
