Garden's looking good actually - the new peach tree had to be re-staked due to an abundance of fruit, and the transplanted Iceberg Roses and English lavender survived the temporary move ( thanks to Symone for recommending Multicrop Plant Starter - the roses went from near dead to thriving again ! )
The hydrangeas have also survived their move, and everything's blooming.
I love this time of year - cut flowers in the house, and all of them free.
Cut the lawn yesterday, tidied the greenhouse, put up new homemade decorations and chinese lanterns; got up on the stepladder and strung our only mature tree with fairy lights.
I love fairy lights at any time of year.
In my last two houses I had them strung up all year round - I think they suited those small coutyards better than this huge yard though ( easier to maintain too ! )
AB is home on Tuesday and we are going to plant out the front garden - well part of it anyway.
We've got a Silver birch, some strappy natives, some box hedge and some roses to go in - oh, and some solar garden lights to light the way.
