All Work and No Play ... Makes A Tired Girl ....!


Hello there ....
hope you all had a nice weekend .. we've been so busy ...
 four days trading in a row...
We are very tired .. its takes its toll .. four mornings .. 4am starts .. loading and unloading the van eight times ! .. we must be crackers..
 So this afternoon when we got home .. I just had to have an hour or so in the garden to unwind ..

The house is in chaos .. not a stroke of housework done for days .. but you know what  ...
I don't care .. 
it can wait until tomorrow .. 
I stopped trying to be Superwoman years ago..

So I've been playing in the garden .. and its jam butties for tea!

We've been .. ever so slowly .. its taken a while ... its finding the time to do it...
but we have made a start .. clearing this garden bed next to the path .. its terribly overgrown and thick with weed.
We will put a new edging in and re do the slate path ... and plant up the bed with some pretty shrubs ... make a kind of hedge .. 
easy to maintain ... hopefully!
So we did a bit more clearing .. Hubby P is very good at weeding .. he has many talents .. and more patience than me.

At the car boots ..  at this time of year ... there are lots of stallholders selling plants .. cuttings from their own garden and whatnot .. great value.. a Girl could .. and does .. go mad...
plant heaven!
Here are a few patiently waiting for a new home.

As you can see the garden is in desperate need of some attention .. everything is just loving this weather ..
 and growing like crazy...

I managed to clear this little corner and added a bit of compost ...a few of the new plants have been given a new home .. 
I could almost hear the give a sigh of relief as I eased them out of their pots.

I had company .. we have rather too much of this sort of company .. why is it they don't like eating the weeds?

And a special little number .. a White Chive .. 
I've not had a white one before ... 
this was a surprise gift from a friend .. lovely.

 I've put it on the 'steps' so that I can keep an eye on it .. and admire it as I sit on the bench having my cup of tea.

Anyway .. enough of me .. I'm still waiting for Hubby P to come back from a clearance .. he is going to be so tired.

I think we will have a little lie in tomorrow ... 

Bye for now x
