Work and Busy lizzies
Ah, me too much work is exhausting the snappy gardener. I am having problems still with uploading pictures. Need a new laptop ASAP. Im getting symptoms from not having one!!
The picture is a busy lizzie, grown from seed, now sat in the spare bedroom.This one is amazing as it has two different colour blooms on one plant.One white, and one peach.How bizarre (to go into old roses wierdness chronicles!!).
Im dreaming about the garden going to and from work.New plans, new plants, wish lists.
I guess Autumn gardening is tidying up from the party that was summer, and winter gardening is dreaming of springtime that signals a new cycle of life..
I need to weed the borders, and make some compost ready for adding to the soil.The roses are blooming still in two borders.The long border can do with some rose magic to lighten it up..
I have Alaskan Iris seed pods to break open.I will designate a section Alaskan Iris and see if they grow.They are hardy so they should love the yorkshire weather.
I have 8 tomato's on two plants.One is as big as the beefsteak tomato I got the seeds from originally.Next year I will grow a half dozen plants for salad and sandwiches I think..
Three night shifts to go now before days off.I will plan the garden in my head on the way to and from the hospital, i need a healing garden for all the winter pressures about to come.
