On returning home with the plants I chatted to a neighbour from across the road. She knows about my health condition and asked how I was. I explained that I will start my treatment very soon and it's going to be a lengthy process. I think we'll be writing off the rest of this year as we'll be shielding at home even if lockdown measures are eased. I was thrilled when later in the afternoon she rang our doorbell and left a bouquet of flowers to cheer me me up, so very nice of her to do that and much appreciated.
I'll add some photos of what I bought and planted yesterday, photos taken in the strong wind today. I bought this wind chime to hang in the tree but it's too windy to put it up today! I've photographed the box from this side as my daughter likes dogs and most things German :)
I am no gardener so I don't know much about plants so it's fingers crossed and hope for the best.
Three Pinks, two in a tub and one in my camper van planter
In the raised bed a Salvia and a Genista. I had to point out an anomaly to the sales assistant, the Genista was £7.99 each or 2 for £35 - so I only bought one :)
and last but not least a Red Hot Poker Primula
So that's my lot in the garden and leaving the house and hopefully I will be able to sit outside and enjoy the summer months. Now if only this gale force wind would drop!
