...and then I think 'Oh I'll finish gathering the amaryllis seeds first!'...
....and in the course of detaching seeds from seed heads what do I do?
First of all I knock over the pot of carefully collected seeds, which are very fly-away and spray across the table...
...and then I knock over the amaryllis plant, which sends compost all over the table, chair and floor....
Back to square one- ho! hum!
On Saturday this lily came into flower- isn't it amazing? I think I must have let the pot dry out at the crucial time because of all the other flowers the petals have been holey; so you can imagine my delight! That night we had a ferocious storm and on Sunday morning my lily was destroyed...such a shame.
I'm sure there must be a lesson in that somewhere?
Yesterday we worked in the garden all day and boy! did I ache by the evening! Since I'm still at the stage of opening beds, digging, and doing mostly ground work it was pretty heavy going. I'm thinking of entering Mrs Universe Body-Building Competitions with all the muscles I must be acquiring- whacha think???
Today its bright and dry and windy so I began building a low dry-stone wall but now I'm huffing a break!
So, another wildly productive day at the coal face!
