Sleeping Beauty's Palace
This morning I continue watering and adding compost to the organ bed and plant the second tray of impatiens. The whole area is now beginning to look better. I have now planted about 60 Impatiens, I also clear and add compost to the little bed by the front door in preparation for planting begonias. I then went for a blood test (follow up after bone density results). On my return I dead headed the sweet peas- this job is getting longer as more flowers are produced - the result of dead heading - catch 22! I am really pleased with the sweet peas which are beginning to reach the roof of the fruit cage, it reminds me of the plants growing up the sides of Sleeping Beauty's Palace and the scent is glorious! I then go back to the village to watch Harefield Juniors dress rehearsal of ... ironically. 'Beauty and the Beast', a production I have been helping with. When I get back, I use the small window of time before I start teaching to bring outside all of the succulents. I remove all of their dead leaves and add compost - they will be much happier outside and soon I will plant them in different displays in the sinks. When I finish teaching I weed the strawberry tanks and water the vegetables.
