Apart from all the other insects, the garden is abuzz with bees, wild and honey bees. Stalks of Lavendar bob under the weight of bees landing.
This evening I planted 3 more Dalmation Peach Foxgloves, rescued them yesterday when I was in HH. The first 3 seem to have settled in nicely. These are in a slightly sunnier position at the north end of East. The soil seemed damp as deep as I dug for the plants which pleased me. If the rest of the garden is damp that deep, I will be satisfied.
I turned or attempted to turn over the compost. It also is good and wet with hundreds of worms, looks more like DD’s worm farm than a compost heap at the moment.
