Sunday pottering.................

I had a very easy day yesterday as I was feeling quite weary. I started with a leisurely breakfast sitting in the garden which was a treat in itself. Mid morning Laura called to see if I wanted to go to the garden centre with her and help choose some plants for her garden. I needed some extra plants for my tubs and hanging baskets, so it was a nice treat to go together..

We went to Mockridges a small independent nursery about ten miles from where we live - they have lovely plants and it’s always worth a trip. The nursery was busy and we only just managed to find a parking space, it was a bit tricky to get around with our wonky trolley but we managed to buy an array of beautiful vibrant plants. Laura was pleased with the flowers she had chosen and I had found plenty to supplement my borders and fill the hanging baskets and tubs. In fact the car was overflowing it's a good job the prices are very reasonable!

By the time I got home I was pretty tired so plants have been put at the bottom of the garden to wait to be potted up -  hopefully an energised me will be ready to plant up tubs and hanging baskets tomorrow (lucky for me Mr R does all the heavy digging work)

Thought I would share some shots of my new plants before they reach their final destination.

 just a few more.....................
