Yesterday's gardening: After weeding various places, I sowed beetroot, oriental mesclun and rocket, 'cos that's what I found in the shed which would work right now. I also bought yellow primroses and yellow poppies and (Brighid's choice) pansies. I'd not seen punnets of exclusively eye-popping colour splotches of yellow poppy before, and they were irresistible. The children and I spent ages debating the merits of different colours of gladioli, but ultimately left them at the shop while I think about where to plant them so we can see them really easily and they won't be blown over by the wind.
Today I had a present at my front door from a friend: two bags of perennial leek plants which needed a new home. Yahoo! Must magic some gardening time tomorrow to plant them. Gardening by torchlight could work. I'm sure I've done it before.
