Well I was working on a side garden pulling out a dead bush and I found a nice creeping vine with lovely tiny purple flowers was growing on it.
So I made sure to pull out the bush gently and then got a set of trellises to replace it for the vines.
I also broke down and picked up some ferns while I was at the garden center.
I'll see how they do in the shade garden near the other ferns.
I also picked up a bit more English Ivy, and plant food and some soil... interesting how it all adds up.
It shows my current gardening style of "Use perennials and natural shade and rip out weeds" is fairly low cost.... but is often a coasting on what's there.
