Weekend work

Saturday rained and was stinky hot but Sunday was beautiful.

I worked in the garden all morning - mulching, moving and planting.

The yellow false cypress got moved closer to the edge and behind it I planted some Alchemilla mollis (Lady's Mantle) which I adore and a pink Geranium x oxonian "Wargrave Pink which I also adore - perennial geraniums that is - this is my first Wargrave Pink version



Also planted some Echinacia purpurea and a peony (Sarah Bernhardt) to the right of this little grouping.

Dug out some of the mystery plant at the front and put in a Geranium Himalayense instead (salvaged from the planting of the peony in the back)

The garden is starting to feel like mine now as I have removed some diseased roses that were spindly and non-producing plus did a major deadheading and tidying up of spent blossoms.

Did some knitting too!

Have a great week everyone!

I could easily put you to work in Ottawa too. You set such an example. My garden just gets away from me, particularly in the heat. And there's whitefly too.
