    My friend gave me two trugtubs full of bare root perennials that she had dug out of her garden so my urgent job is to either pot them up or get them into the ground. They vary from little sprigs of lamium to big clumps of kniphofia.

    I've still got bulbs to plant and some potted perennials that need to go out.

    All the tender stuff is still out too including some cuttings so I'll take advantage of the daylight to decide what needs to happen.

    They are the fun jobs- the wind blew one of my waterbutts out of the chain and that's going to need reattachingimage

  • Picking the ripe chillis in the greenhouse for my colour blind husband.

    Clearing my pots of the summer annuals, planting up with tulips instead, and another assault on the weedingimage

    More digging out of turf for new paths, sowing of green manure, plants to be moved  and a million other things but there won't be enough hours! image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

  • A lovely morning here in Aberdeen, so I think I will start collecting for my leaf compost

  • Bulbs, bulbs and more bulbs

  • Still need to plant bulbs in containers and flower beds....tidy the greenhouse and pullout the tomato and cucumber debris......start to bring in pelargoniums that have given up a Camellia.....pot up some rooted cuttings.....visit the garden centre for more pots and maybe something in flower for a bit more colour......and I wouldn't mind betting that I won't do any of this because its a horrible windy nasty day and I have temporarily run out of enthusiasm.........oh and endless leaf sweeping ugh ! Please someone tell me I am not alone in my unenthusiastic state !
