So into the ground went the 10 hostas (oooh, some of them were looking long and white: I hope they’ll be OK) and the 10 astilbe roots. All of them labelled, sprinkled with blood & bone meal, and watered. I did that work in the afternoon, when birds usually make themselves scarce. It means that, with my recharged battery on my camera, I’m good to go again. It was a very birdy morning. I’ll be updating my Flickr account tonight with the results.
