It actually stopped raining for more that 10 minutes this week so I've been able to make progress with jobs in the garden. Lots of cutting back and down but also plans for improving a bed. I'd wanted a path to weave through this bed for easier access, as it's quite large. As always when Mr C gets involved it turns from a job to A Project.
He says - to get a nice curve on the path we'd need to enlarge the bed, what do you think?
As always, I say - Oh alright then, if you insist.
Just like that he's out with a rope marking it out.
The we start digging up turf.
It comes up nice and easily as it's so damp but not too soggy.
I have dozens of plants in pots waiting for a new home as well as rooted cuttings. I'd love to get them planted before the winter.
This bed was the place I put everything which didn't have a home. It'll be good to plant with more thought.
Oh yes, and here is my vase:
Two kinds of Chrysanthemum. Avignon Pink and Pandion Bronze plus scented geranium foliage (Thank you Amanda at The Running Wave), Abelia and some Michaelmas Daisy. I don't know the variety of these. I've transplanted them from someone else's garden to a place where they can spread about but not run amok as they are liable to. Also grasses Panicum 'Frosted Explosion' (I have seeds if anyone in the UK would like some) and Setaria.
This is one of my favourite vases - terracotta which I like for autumn colours.
See what you can find to put In a Vase on Monday and join in with Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.
