Dan's Good Idea
We had the best weekend thanks to the car being not all that well.
We can still use it but we decided it was probably a good idea to stay close to home, we did manage to buy all the gifts on our list before heading home for a weekend of just seeing what happened.
I think I've mentioned before that our lawn is not a thing of great beauty so we have never been able to decide where to go with it, but we both like the fact it has clover and other things in it to attract birds and insects. So out came the spade and a little while later we had five holes filled with seeds. It's probably a bit late to do this for this year but when Dan wants to do something with the garden we must strike while the iron is hot! Hopefully, at some point in the future, the holes will be filled with wild flowers. And if they don't then the lawn won't really look much worse than it did before! I think we might plant some bulbs in the holes so we have a bit of colour at the start of the year too.
Additional good news, the hosta I bought when we went to Ingleton Falls last year has come back to life! It disappeared about a fortnight after we bought it last year, but I just left it in case of a miracle and here it is. It looks a little forlorn, but it's alive and I'm happy.
