I've found it hard to motivate myself to do anything in the garden. However, yesterday I opened up my 'green tent' and checked in on my fuchsias. Sadly, I lost all my geraniums, but most of the fuchsias made it.
One of the previous owners had concreted over the garden, and today I set the the nephew to work making me a couple of little beds.
They look a bit basic now, however, once the plants start growing, they'll be a nice dash of green I think.
It won't be long before Billy cat and I are fighting over the recliner.
