Rained off, but that's not a bad thing

I did not plan to do much, if anything, in the garden today, but it was dry this morning and after walking Daisy I tipped out a couple of buckets of bark, and then a couple more, and then before I really thought about what I was doing, it was back into full mulching mode ☺️

Did not take very long to empty 44 tubs, this side of the Coppice is not so heavily planted and there was very little tidying up to do.  Just as Management began filling all the tubs for Round Two it started raining, but we decided to keep going, so ended up getting thoroughly wet.  The good thing is I now have the next lot of bark chip in situ waiting for tomorrow morning, a couple more hostas 'fenced off' and am nearly at the end of the bed.  As it was too damp for pictures of today's achievement, it is a good opportunity to sort through and publish some 'pretties' from last week:





















These anemone have been in flower constantly since mid November:

I had a look through the blog, found the post when I bought them.  March 2018, £2.00 from Wilko, but grown on in pots first to give them a chance.  If they have them this year it will definitely be worth getting more.



Trying to use a twig to gently raise the head of a beautiful snowdrop.  Grotty photos, must make an effort to take more before the flowers go over.

    1. Morning Eunice, glad you now 'get' the routine {giggle}. The little yellow ones are Winter Aconite, used to have loads but I think the bloody mice ate them.

  2. Hellebore heaven & snowdrops too. Thank you, thank you, I've so enjoyed seeing them. Hope getting soaked & being cold weather, you don't catch a chill. Take care & huggles.

    1. Hi Susan, glad you approve, I'll take some more when the sun comes out. We were wearing "the right clothes" so didn't get too wet.
