Friday feeling

To instil that Friday Feeling I dragged myself away from the central heating and did a quick bit of work outside today.  Yes, I repotted the long-suffering wildlife pond plants.

The six plants (most whose names still remain a mystery) have been sitting in a container of rain water for ages waiting for me to get with the programme.  

So it is with a great sense of achievement that I have rehoused them in three larger pond baskets after giving their roots a hair-cut and trimming off all the rotting foliage.  

Improvements on the previous potting method were made by layered with horticultural grit at the base, aquatic compost on top of that and finally finishing off with a layer of more grit to prevent the soil from bleeding into the pond.  

Hooray for Friday and roll-on Spring!
