The plants sound lovely Hairy. I always thought it the alkaline in the soil that determines the colour of a hydrangea - I never knew you could colour them yourself. I’m jealous you’re home and able to potter - 3 1/2 days left for me.....not that I’m counting 😉 I’m pleased you enjoyed your meeting with your stepdad.
So sorry to hear about your BIL and hope the family is coping okay during this time.We have been getting some plants sorted too for our garden and have really gone down the functional route this year. So mostly herbs at the moment with basil, rosemary, thyme, mint and chives so far courtesy of my fathers garden.
Happy holidays! Hope you have a good break x
I love hydrangeas, we have pale Pink ones ( more acid) than alkaline soil. Love the idea of putting them in pots and feeding them to make them blue
My dad has offered to give me £500 to book a short break in a self catering place 😀. Isn't that lovely of him? We didn't want to go without DS1 as he hasn't had a holiday for years and we asked DS2 to come as we didn't want to leave him out. We were worried we wouldn't find anywhere without adding lots of money to it, so I was getting a bit stressed about it 😩. But we've finally found a three bedroomed house for £734 for four nights. It's in a quiet village in Somerset and has a private garden and country views. So we've booked it! My sister is coming to stay with us for four nights at the end of August. She's booked one direct train journey from Edinburgh to minimise contact with people so I hope it will be safe for DH. But as she's lost her husband a few weeks ago I want to see her and she needs her family at this traumatic time. I've been planning some lovely walks we can go on. There's a coastal walk I know she will love. I'm really looking forward to seeing her 🙂.
