|A new perennial geranium - palmatum|
Sunday, day of peace, the day dawns beautifully, sunny and warm. Sometimes the past comes back to haunt us and leaves one feeling sad but that is as it should be.
A walk round the garden, a promise of the roses to come, the weeds, highlighted at the moment by the bright yellow of the creeping buttercup. This afternoon off to one of the National Garden openings in Kirkby
Brilliant night - Lucy had a panic attack that lasted several hours, she fell asleep around 1 o.clock I slept on the sofa. I do give her Calm-um tablets, whether they work or not is a matter for debate. Also I am down to one hen after the other two having died recently, it was sad but I am told hens die unexpectedly. After we come back from Scotland I shall get some bantams I think, the one remaining hen is now spoilt!
