This is the most exciting thing in the garden at the moment, and I am constantly checking on it's progress. Genius to put this bright orange poppy next to the black grasses - wish I could take credit for it but it self seeded so nothing to do with me, all I did was forget to weed it out.
So yesterday I had planned to have a big gardening day, and I wasn't going to let the weather stop me so put on waterproof trousers and coat. But after a while when my fingers were so cold they didn't function properly and water had managed to get into the gap between coat and trousers I started think about giving up. Then when my husband announced he was lighting the fire, going inside seemed like the right thing to do. A hot shower and some lunch later, the sun decided to come out! Couldn't believe it! Oh well, I managed to get a new clematis into the ground which was the most important job. And it was very cosy in front of that fire.
