We want to make a little rockery by our patio doors as it's a bit of an odd area of the garden where things kind of grow but it doesn't suit high plants. We had agapanthus there but they just looked wrong.
Today we went down to Longacres to pick up some turf for a part of our garden that has now appeared since the neighbour's trees have gone as we want some more grass area. Really helpful chap in the collection area who loaded in 6 lovely looking pieces. S then insisted we go and get some lemon drizzle cake so we had a look around. Typical of Longacres, I carried a small basket and ended up loaded to the eyeballs - wobbling a large pepper plant along - with both of us carrying extra stuff by the time we finished!
I bought some lovely little rockery plants, some marigolds for a burst of colour and some Cuprinol coloured paint for the new shed. Need the weather to stabilise a bit first to do that - who'd have thought it would be so rotten in August.
As we don't have the rockery stones yet, I decided to smash up one of my broken pots and make a kind of crazy paved area around the plants for now. Doesn't look too bad I think. We just need to go and select some rockery stones soon and build this area up properly, but it's a start.
Only disappointing part of our day? Longacres only had small lemon drizzle cakes, not big ones...tsk.
