So we had the trimming of the hedges a few weeks ago.
I've been planting a few things- Here are some things I planted 2 weeks ago. The one on the far left will (eventually) yield soft yellow flowers and lots of green foliage.
The blue one in the center is already showing it's flowers. The one to the right should yield white flowers:
Last- this is the sweet pea plant that I started on my windowsill at work that has been replanted outside. It looks more than a bit touch and go (please note many dead shoots) but there is one shoot that is surviving and even one new one that has come out. Given how much rain we've had I'm starting to get a bit optimistic.
