That which was lost... is found!!!

Watered the garden last night, hopefully for the last time just now, rain is forecast for tomorrow.

As I watered the front garden I realised that there was a fine net over some of the plants at the far side......yes!! the net I lost the other night. So it was carefully unravelled and then put over the lavender and the ground where the cats were defecating  result, this morning, no scratched earth on the path!! result.....

I have been thinking quite a bit about how to make the garden less labour intensive, I am going to dig out the plants and bulbs in the front. I will put the bulbs in pots for now, then weed kill the ground and cover with weed suppressing mat and pebbles, planting through the suppressant. Hopefully that will help to keep the ground reasonably weed free. If I do see weeds growing they need to be taken out by hand straight away.

I saw my neighbours gardener yesterday, I asked her about the back, she is coming to see me on Saturday and we will discuss what we can do there. I want to grass another large piece and just have 4 raised beds. If necessary I will have the whole lot grassed apart from where the fruit bushes are and go from there.

I have my pelvic XRay this morning, am going on to DD2's she is coming with me to see DB this afternoon. I phoned last night and he was ok. They are trying a different medication for his dizzies, so far it is not working, once again I think they are barking up the wrong tree but we will see. I need to put fuel in the car again.

It was a misty start to the morning, and it is quite cool with a breeze, autumn will soon be here.

Look for an update later................

DD2 and I went in to see DB this afternoon. I am very concerned about him, he is looking very frail. He has lost a lot of weight and says the hospital meals are rubbish, he has no appetite. I am hoping they get him to melton as soon as possible, he needs a lot of building up.

DD2 made pasta bol for supper and we had a wafer ice cream for dessert, will not need much more to eat tonight.

Day off tomorrow. Step son is going so I will visit on Saturday and Sunday. Then need to sort out visiting next week if he is still in the Royal.

Its been another very warm day again, its supposed to rain after lunch tomorrow so I need to get laundry washed early so it dries. I have a couple of jobs to do, but will have a break between for a sit down and a cup of tea.

Off to make myself a cuppa and put my feet up for a while.
