I decided to go to a car-boot sale on Saturday. It was the first of the season in this venue where they only have them on the first Saturday of the month from May to September
The things I didn't buy were these.......... 100 Postcards of classic Ladybird covers in a box as the woman wouldn't drop her price from £5 ( and what would I do with 100 postcards anyway? although they looked brilliant)
I also didn't buy a big basket for holding kindling wood for the wood-burner. It was priced up at £6 and the wooden trug we are using will do until I find something bigger but cheaper. ( SO cross that we left the perfect kindling basket at the smallholding!)
And I didn't buy a "vintage" wooden box for holding craft stuff as it was also priced at £5.
What I did buy was a Hosta...........Purple flowers (of course - it dawned on me as I looked at them)
for the purple bed and these
On the way home I called in at the Garden Centre for compost and spotted some dark purple Salvia bedding plants to fill the gaps in my purple bed and also splashed out on a tray of mixed cut and come again salad leaves to get the half water-butt beds off to an quick start.
Plenty of jobs to do in the garden now.......... and as I'm here on my own I'd better get on with it.
