...it took me the best part of three hours to weed The Back Border...
...I'm two thirds of the way there...
...perhaps another hour or so in the morning and I'll have done it!
Actual plants were uncovered! Delphiniums, iris, aquilegia, astrantia and my lovely alliums.
I had several robins giving me a hand in clearing the grubs from the disturbed soil. Look at his mouth, full of worms!
They were incredibly tame, sometimes mere inches away from where I was working.
The tulip bulletin of the day is that upstart from the fragrant collection flowered today - delicate pink, white and lime green streaks.
And the Lady Jane have been sunbathing again. Angelique are ready to burst into flower.
I feel well and truly inspired to spend more time out in my garden now - it's amazing what a bit of blogging can do for motivation.
Hope you're having a good weekend too! Time for a glass of well-deserved wine, I think...
