Sunny garden days.

The first of the Blackcurrants have been dug up and rehomed today. I am thankful for the late Spring which allows these to be transplanted so late in the season. These will be planted quickly and hopefully will take off straight away. I like Blackcurrants as much as anyone but I think the previous inhabitants of this place must have had an obsession with them. Any gaps were filled with a Blackcurrant. Under trees, among the shrubs and flowers, Blackcurrants everywhere. I counted over 50 plants… far too many.

This bed will be emptied too. A big clump of Rubus tricolor and a Golden Ivy, nothing else. Not for me! Lots of plants from this to swop for new garden treasures. I guess if we all liked the same things the world would be a pretty boring place.

Have spent most of the last few days in the garden. Pruning, planning and digging out stuff. The weather has been lovely… not stop sunshine. Half the conifers at the boundary line have been cut, the rest will go next week. When we bought the house it was with the understanding that these trees which were shading the bottom part of the garden would be cut. We get to have the timber too. It will need seasoning before being used in the stoves over Winter.

Lettie kept herself occupied for hours today watching some little creature which was in the undergrowth…
