Remember the window boxes I put together about 6 weeks ago ?
They are now in full bloom and I see a field of pansies and daffodils each time I look out the living room windows.
The clematis is also doing wonderfully. No flowers yet, but lots and lots of new growth.
And the crocosmia were doing ok as well, until one little black panther decided to sun-bath on them...
Now 8 hours later, I have a hell of a back ache ! Getting rid of the equivalent of three huge garbage bags of dead plants and earth, chopping down all that nasty ivy, sweeping and cleaning the whole balcony, planting lovely new plants (another clematis and more echinacea amongst others), weeding, grooming and fertilising all the remaining plants - is tiresome work !
Man, and now the weather is so nasty again, I don't even get to take some 'after' pictures.
But I can't resist showing this last one. The tiny black panther all refreshed after a day of sleeping in the sun, observing the exhausted and aching Fat Cat doing some blogging...
What did you get done this weekend ?
