It was nice to get back to some proper gardening today, this morning I pruned a clematis, and cut back the tops of a lot of herbaceous plants, mostly Japanese Anemones, that are now looking very tired, that and reporting a few houseplants, set me up nicely for the afternoon. The afternoon held more pruning, Holly and Mallow (Lavatera) and some general tidying. This is the sort of thing I became a gardener to do. It was a very pleasant change because he previous few work days have been more construction biased. I must say I have been a little worried about the most ridiculous thing, the other weekend I cut my finger nails, a little too short, now I am not sure that they will be as long as I would like for Sunday night. I will not wear false nails, but am worried that I will break one while working, then they will look really off!
