Nobody likes me, everybody hates me,Guess I'll go eat worms,Long, thin, slimy ones; Short, fat, juicy ones,Itsy, bitsy, fuzzy wuzzy worms.
Well, that trip down the garden was a waste of time. Heavy clay earth and torrential rain don't go together. Had to admit defeat - just for today.
Hope your arm is OK Dove.
What's what with the Moon Brum?
think it will be 3 degrees at 6am but a real feel of 4 actually tomorrow is looking quite nice 12-13 but a real feel of 17
hopefully my top soil will have dried off a bit its getting like trench warfare today. Still I think i broke the back of it i might get to plant something tomorrow
Well yesterday and today been sorting out digging up and dividing an Agapanthus
Here is some pictures of the plants and space. Going to build a raised bed to put the plants back as found a large lot of concrete under where the plant was - so it was not in much soil but I guess they like that roots everywhere
It has been windy today but blue sky yesterday
Computer not upload prop but are there now
Brum have you been on the tonic wine???
Just had dinner and watched Will and Grace. Got very little done today apart from repotting basil cos rain comes battering down every time I think I'll get outside. Can I have your weather Verdun?
Everyone else putting me to shame!
Tina-we love you!!!!

Tee tee please come back ........... X Fairy .... Wine ? Never ......... It's the sun, not used to it!
Know what you mean about the sun brum..just weather beaten here!
Hello folks I'm home, fed and watered and sitting on the sofa . I've been out into the garden and brought my little tomatoes back indoors from the mini greenhouse where they've been in the sunshine all day. I checked all my seeds think the digitalis might be just about to germinate
I've watered the blood-red wallflowers in their pots, they're just beginning to come into bloom and I walked along the edge of the Shady Bank, seeing all the perennials peeking through the soil and hand-weeding the little cleavers and bird's eye that are daring to make an appearance. Putting gritty sand around the delphiniums as they started growing seems to have kept the slugs and snails at bay (fingers crossed) so let's hope the same trick works for the hostas
Oh, my arm's fine - thanks to all your positive vibes
Gardengirl - loads of plants from one clump! Are they all going back in the same place or are you planning to spread them around?
Ohhh geee fanks. Did read about gardening by the moon but I have enough difficulty gardening by the sun.
Fairygirl, you can't garden in the pouring rain. I'm the lazy Mary as I only garden when the weather is good. Don't do seeds or anything like that, but I enjoy what I do. If I have to wear anything other than trousers and a top, I don't venture out. Think it's going to be good tomorrow and the wind is going to drop. Do hope so.
Dove, meant to ask, was the bread gritty?
No complaints so far, and we had some of it toasted with soup for supper
Chicky - might spread a bit around but mainly going back in same place just in a raised bed. There was a big hole in the middle where it had all grown around the edge.
Also been up to the local train station where I volunteer there to check on the garden - done a small bit of weeding
Fairygirl, sure you are doing great gardening, I still feel behind - loads of bits to do yet
Gardengirl- I'm hoping to get measuring finished tomorrow as it's to be better as Tina says. I was fighting a losing battle with the wind on Tuesday and yesterday was dire. Today was better but I did quite a bit indoors as it was still very windy and heavy showers It's just very frustrating! Will get a bit more done in shed too as I need it organised. Once I get my drawing done I can think about what I want in the garden- but I know I won't be able to decide!!
Hope everyone that's been unwell is getting better.
Maud hope your Dad is doing alright. It's very stressful for you.
Dove did you say soup...and bread...?
