Well had a trip to Lidl as daff bulbs not there when checked the other day but no daffs then, mum managed to pick up a large bag tulips for the station which was great from a different store as have a few near by but nothing else as all gone.
Offer on leaflet - large bag of daffs started this week from Thursday in shop near me, so off to lidl today as well and managed to get a bag or 2 of 5kg Narcissus/ daffs mix and yellow for a fiver a bag.
Great isn't it Stacey lots of daffs thanks for the letting me know on the other thread, the train station will be full of them just a lot of planting to do first all that digging will be knackering need it to rain first if not ground will be like concrete, also got a few hebes plants for the station cheap and then some bulbs - Tulips and Crocus for the garden and a few hebes as well - want some in the garden too.
Well Evening Forkers forgot to say
salads and raw meat? I thought it was pasties and pilchards, washed down with scrumpy
Getting cloudy out tonight now and dark as well.
Will be watching GW later on TV - walled garden it say's on info in Scottish borders sounds good
All the more cake for me...greedy little fairy....yum yum
It's chocolate coated salad fidget- don't let that boy fool you
Chucking it down earlier so didn't get back out to get more plants in. Only just gone off again but I'm too full of cake to go back out. Lots of turf to remove for new beds etc. Shed being moved tomorrow (hopefully) so I'll need to empty it but will try and get more plants in if I can summon up the energy. Starting to feel I'm creating a garden instead of just doing construction.
Must remember to watch GW. forgotten more than I've watched so far this year.
Here in sitting room a waft of Nicotiana affinis just went by.
Can imagine it nut. Lovely
Just to lower the tone... sat in the kebab shop waiting for my tea - chicklets request for a celebratory dinner! Rain not here yet but won't be long.
I love the evening scents Verdun. Mirabilis jalapa is lovely but doesn't spread around like the nicotiana, I had to go up close to get it
Always trying to squeeze more scent Imto the garden nut. Never grown mirabilis so will check it out. Thanks
Not much of a visual display Verdun but I've been groeing it for years now. It's perennial and may be hardy enough for you but not for me. Easy from seed though. Bought a packet this year ith some new colours. Been saving my own pinks and yellows for years.
evening all . letter today ,saying i get my state pension on my 66th birthday. and i remember the boys of 66. cake help yourselfs . JSain ttd belgian choc reduced to 50p must eat today. ps humid and light rain here in north madchester
Hello folks - completly bushed!!! One of those days at work
Lovely watching GW - so peaceful and restful - the bit about plant-hunting interested me particularly - I'll be visiting the southern Urals in Central Russia next spring - I'm hoping to see lots of wild flowers, possibly tulips? Don't know what else? Does anyone else know?
Evening. I've just been out to water. Rain promised for tomorrow but didn't want plants to have to wait 'till then.
Fairy everything you do sounds so strenuious(sp?)
I was just thinking today as I sat out in the garden that I'd like more scented things. I need things that don't need much space but will fill the garden with a wonderful scent.
Just watching GW as I recorded it as I watered- Monty saying The garden really isn't that big . I'd like him to visit me then says his isn't big. He could suggest more things for me to grow.
Is it cake hour.... I'm munching on a piece of my vanilla sponge with home made strawberry jam...... Mmmmmmm
I haven't eaten all this had people round!!!!!!!
Oh yeah??? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dX2tMmVVTiw
omg rolling on the floor laughing at that..... No really I didn't........ Just dropped a jean size don't want to put it on again!!!!!
Fairygirl, thank you for the recipe, that's great. Copied it and printed it.
Monty's garden looked pretty big to me, does he know what a normal garden looks like? I was glad he did penstemon cuttings. I've done some and I wanted to do some later and he said up to end of September.
Made loads of tomato, onion and basil purée for freezer for soups and stews in the winter.
Just watched Doc Martin, glad they showed the last episode again as I'd missed it.
Busy-lizzie is that 3 purées' or just the one ?
Just the one, all mixed together!
