All booked up…

Amalee Issa has given me a dig in the ribs today.  Not a word, not a single word, have I written here in six months – or is it more? –  she says.

I have an excuse:  I am in the thick of it with not just one, but two books.  So instead of writing anything pithy – since I haven’t really got time –  I will just add a couple more pictures of my garden.  Sorry.

New path through the border from one end… (click to enlarge)

The new stepping-stone path (replacing a swathe of hard-pressed lawn between a border and a central bed) has worked out even better than I hoped.

…and the other end (click to enlarge)

It has made it possible to walk, effectively,  right through the middle of a border that now feels realy chunky  – with thyme, camomile and other tiddlers creeping happily between the stones.  Loadsaflowers at really close quarters. Lovely.

  1. I know how it feels to be stuck at a computer when you’d much rather be outside. But I look forward to reading (and buying) the books!
    By the way, I saw your comments on blanketweed in your latest Thorny Problems column. I use Nishikoi Goodbye Blanket Weed, which really really works (unlike other products). You chuck one sachet a week into the pond – it might take a couple of months to gain the upper hand.
    I use Netfloat too, on your recommendation, and the combination of Netfloat and blanketweed is not a good one. But Nishikoi GBW seems to do the trick. Don’t be put off by the price, which is exorbitant.
