The new roses that we bought last week have now all been planted in the rose garden.
I´m sure it won´t be long before the tiny foliage buds will be sprouting.
Really looking forward to seeing them bloom.
I have been saving our tea bags, drying them out before removing them from the bag, I remember many years ago that my Grandma used to always swill the dregs of the teapot and put it around her roses. Easier when you use loose tea, she always had a good show in the summer.
The tea leaves contain nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, and some trace minerals, which is supposed to be very beneficial to acid loving plants, including tomatoes. By sprinkling them around the plant base and scratching in it will give them a boost.
Well no harm in trying it rather than just going in the bin, a good bit of recycling too.
Decided to swap meals around today, a heavier lunch then a lighter tea. Haven´t made paella for ages.
My recipe is not quite authentic, but then it is to our taste, so that´s ok by me. It does help having the correct rice which absorbs quite quickly.
It was rather yummy!
Not much going on on the craft front, I added a few rows to the lacy bolero but must have missed a yarn over so had to unpick it, grr
Although I did recover the bench seat cushion, which now looks much fresher and finished off the backs of the hexie coasters. Not all a fail then lol.
