Where once there was only mud

Back in March I wrote a post in which I had included an image of an area of patio from where I had lifted the paving and was preparing the ground to be a new bed.  The image you’ll see is probably a familiar one: an area of earth bare of anything but full of potential.

The scene now is rather different.  The bed looks better then I had hoped and the plants seemed to have established themselves pretty well.  With the help of a few annuals to fill in the gaps the whole area is looking good and is full of some wonderful fragrances.

  1. What a great feeling it is when a plan comes together or when a border becomes the way you imagined it when you planted it, especially if it does it sooner than you hoped!
    When did yous sow the Cosmos to have flowers already?


    • Let me just check the journal…the Cosmos was sown on the 12th March and has the delightful name Double Click Snow Puff!. I think that the warm weather we’ve had, pretty much from March onwards, has resulted in things flowering a bit earlier than usual. And yes, it’s great to see the bed looking good!
