28th July

Just cutting back the flowers on the Hosta, they are just past their best, been a great show. in general everything seems to be better this year,  things seem to like the cooler summers even if we don't.
The Apple trees are really filling out well looks like a bumper crop.
Scott on Sunday cut the grass and applied weed and feed, a few minutes later it rained so well timed.
The tall Alstroemeria  are just finishing, have cut back, as they are new to me wonder if they will flower a second time, probably not.
The Holly in the front garden that had a major  chop is also growing well, must keep it shaped and smaller.
This year I have resolved that all the bushes are to be kept lower so that I do not have to climb to trim, and that the hanging baskets are just that bit lower  to avoid same, about time I learnt some sense.
I bought two new bushes earlier on, Snowdrop trees, sadly though growing never flowered.
