I have been shopping, just a few plants came home with me, the box plants at the back came from our market in Fareham, they are healthy good sized plants. The Chocolate Cosmos, is already planted, very late but the was a nice bud on the root and half price.
The box is already in the ground, I have snipped the longer branches back, my hope is have a low box hedge, shaped to fit the front garden, I have had to add pebbles here to keep the cats out.
I have planted some of the cuttings to see if I can grow a few more plants. Monty Don on Gardeners World makes it look easy to do.
I have had a couple of lazy mornings over the weekendThis week at work has been hectic, the lady reapplying for the new role, had disrupted the office all week, She had her interview on Thursday, but Friday morning she was full of herself, I had the afternoon off and found out by phone she had failed and would finish at the end of August. I have to admit, I was glad not to be in the office.
Friday was the last day I worked with Ann, she is on holiday for the next two weeks, I have never met such a great lady, working with her for the past year has been a joy.
Yesterday Fliss popped in, and stayed for tea, we had a nice catch up, Su and David are at Silverstone watching the F1, they have camped on site for 3 days.
Lazy day at home today, friend popping in this afternoon.
