After what feels like an eternity of clearing the garden (and it's still not finished) I decided at long last that something (anything!) had to get planted.
With us digging up so many huge weeds and clumps of grass the garden is just one giant mud bath. It feels like we are going backwards and making no progress at all.
So along came this little flower when we visited the garden centre to buy me some new gloves, with no holes, and a rake – to make clearing the garden that little bit easier and take the strain off the fork which we've been using as a rake for weeks on end.
