The garden has been getting rather dry so rain this week has been very welcome. After not raining seriopusly for a couple of months it seems to have forgotten the ground rules.
Sunny days, rain at night!
This week it has all fallen during the day but finally today we are back on track. Lovely sunny day, tipping down as I write this!
As expected the Hellebore seed was shed this week. As expected I was a day too late, and it had started to fall but I seem to have most of it safely gathered in. I like to sow it all as fast as possible and then twiddle my thumbs waiting for it to come up next January.
On the website there is a big Sarracenia reorganisation in the works but it will be a week or two before it appears because the garden keeps looking more appealing!

I have a lot of good intentions when it comes to updating this site, and I try to keep a note about what is going on, if you are interested.
