View from kitchen bench (Apr 16)

The magnolia has dropped its petals (sob!) and the tulips are fading fast. The path to the (I hesitate to use the word) lawn looks a real mess... better do something about that. Viburnum is gearing up for a showing (was beset by aphids over the weekend but seems ok after a quick spray). The rain'll do it good.

It is, isn't it... am currently juggling witch hazel, ceanothus, corylus, fig, wisteria, hydrangea and passion flower. I had planned to plant in the raised bed beside the aztel pearl, but was surprised to discover that the aztec pearl will eventually grow to 2.5 x 2.5 metres, so it's plan B, which means whatever gets planted has to go next to the compost heap where the soil is dreadful - lots of small bits of coal mixed in with fragments of red brick and not very much earth - so I am doing what I can to improve things. Any other ideas for plants or soil improving hints?
