I love the garden when its raining and the colours against the grey paving circle, shame the camera doesn't catch it perfectly. And rain saves me having to water it all evening with watering cans. On Saturday I dug out my rosemary, it was so big and getting woody it just had to go. But all is not lost because I took loads of cuttings to pot up next week when I have more time and bought a low growing one in the plant shop at Hyde Hall called Fota Blue.
Today was the monthly Iwade village market and despite the weather, half term and Rochester Dickens festival not that far away we still had a busy day. So another one over for four weeks, just need to source some more stall holders to fill the hall garden area. It's getting harder to secure people despite all my efforts of emails and telephone calls. But I'm not one to give up and where theres a will....
Black bird update - three eggs! Yes three eggs, brilliant news. When I dug out the rosemary I managed to scape one more trug full out of the compost bin, Mr Blackbird was very pleased with the fresh supply of worms.
I'm off to carry on with some crochet and relax after a busy weekend. Hope you all had a good weekend and managed to get into the garden or allotment. Amanda x
