Now it's warm and I don't remember what plants I needed to more or where they were.
On my phone this comes out as 42 lines of "Didn't do much today" so I dunno about that.Didn't do much today, just a bit of pruning wisteia shoots, tying up new growth on clematis and pruning the three quinces on the side fence. I don't like them growing too high as they block the azaleas from the sun.
Went to Wyevale to spend my vouchers. One of our ceramic rose pots had a crack in it where the wind had blown it off its pot mover last year, so I bought a replacement.... and three alpines for the gaps in the rockery, plus another pot mover. It was for my wife's blueberry plant she wants to keep on the patio. Wyevale wasn't at all busy for a bank holiday week-end. This is one of those planned for closure and housing development if they can get the planning permission. it's happened to at least two nurserys that I know of in the Altrincham area.
Re-arranged the roses on the new paved area, to give my wife a better view from her chair in the lounge. They're all doing nicely and some are already flowering. Did a bit of greenfly spraying.
One other "non gardening job." I've several sets of "scruff" I wear around the house. At any time I can drop what I'm doing indoors go straight out to the garden or garage, get involved in a mucky job, then come in shower and change into clean scruff.
I've a bad habit of not always properly checking my pockets for the odd screw, nut or washer. There's always a chance something could end up in the washing machine's filter. So every six months I check the filter for any lint or metal objects, as I did today. I do it when my wife's not in the kitchen as "there'd be trouble" if I found something. (This machine is on at least twice a day, every day). Anyway, I didn't find anything in the filter.
I can't win with her, she's never very well and often in pain, which makes her a bit cranky sometimes.
Yesterday on one of these occasions, I jokingly said to her "What would you do, if I wasn't here for you to moan at?"
She replied, "If you weren't here, I wouldn't have anything to moan about!"
On my phone this comes out as 42 lines of "Didn't do much today" so I dunno about that.
My neighbor Chuck is a retired naval Lt. Commander. Helicopter squadron guy. I asked him once what he would miss most about his wife. His reply? "The noise".
