Bought another wild swan today. Looks good. You may be right about the over watering, ESP re the plugs.
MrsGarden, miscamthus variegatus is the most eye catching foliage wise.......lovely white effect so let nobody palm you off
Beautiful day until it rained later this afternoon. So disappointed about the rain I,had to eat a raspberry pavlova
Is that cake? or does meringue and cream and raspberries count as one of your 5 a day?
Lost the blinkin post...
potty i didnt know your story - hug. Double hug panda.
have i missed edu atong yorkshide,oops typo, watched montys 80 gardens, not great again but better than last one.
verdun - apparently you know nowt ( i do not believe it - in predictive, that changed to 'most', according to potty predictive is wrong) !!!!
Meringue is egg - you can go to work on one of those!
Cream is calcium - good for our bones as we get a bit older!
Raspberries are def. one of your 5 a day!
We've just spent the evening lying on our backs on the grass under the ash trees watching bats flit around the garden and listening to tawny owls calling. The sky is quite dark and we could see quite a few stars and we watched a satellite - a really lovely evening
I am but a simple fellow so I am confused.
Incidentally your lobelias and the miscanthus like same moist comditions as well as associating (contrasting) well together
Fidget, cream, meringue and raspberries. Unfortunately, one portion was not required so I,had to eat second helping. I managed it though.
2 of your 5 a day
I've mashed a banana with some sweet wine and golden syrup. I'm trying to attract moths, but its not working.
You could attract my OH with that
Dove.....you understand. It's not my greed. It's all about vitamins n minerals And fidget's banana, sweet wine and syrup ....."attracting moths". , a likely story. But I do drink lager to deter wood lice.
Evening all! Thanks Mrs G for you best wishes and thanks Potty for your sharing your story x The support from you all has been amazing and has helped me gain the strength to tackle this head on. So the docs have scheduled me some CBT, appointment date to be confirmed and given me some pills to take when the anxiety gets too much. I should feel better but I just feel very sad
I have been at Bingo tonight, thus the late posting. No wins for me
My Canadian rellies came round for a quick visit and loved the garden, they saw it not long after I moved in last year and can really notice the changes - just wish I'd taken pics as it has been developing!
Thanks Chicky, you are right In the meantime, I will try harder with the camera, and above is a picture I managed of my Heleniums, my faves in the garden.
Just been printing one of my photo's and framed it
this is the photo before i printed it (it actually looks better than it seems in the frame flash against glass doesnt work for quality)
Oh no, detention again, Verdun twas not me - potty got me in trouble again. (can't make the quotes work so have a look back) morning all ......
Quick post as Guides starts back tonight and we are having a sleepover so I was glad that the rain came today - no need to water tonight
hope you all had a good day, mine was surprisingly good. The weekend is here now so woo hoo! Get to get out in the garden
Well, after cutting the branches from conifer earlier this morning, I decided to dig the bloomin thing up late this afternoon. Took about 2 hours. I would have posed with it ...as fishermen do with their catch....but I want to remain anno, anonem, aknownim......I want to keep my identity secret ......as I am on the run from the law. ( unpaid parking fine)
Very satisfying job. Removed every root, dug in plenty of garden compost and raked it all level. Got soaked to the skin as it poured down for the last 30 minutes. All foliage and branches dumped (in the little,old lady's garden next door) and just a 6' trunk that weighs a ton to be removed. (it was about 9 or 10 ' tall) Will saw it into 2 or 3 pieces ASAP. Got plants ready. The heavy rain will wash the surrounding lawn and settle the ground but the exciting plantIng is for next dry day.
As I write this the sun has returned, my dog is moaning so I guess it's walkie time
Verdun, shame we won't see your muscles but if the police are after you I quite understand. reminded me of a huge fushia bush i dug out, several attempts over prob 18 months, including burning it one bonfire night - to no effect !
Tina, you mentioned ' a clip around the ear' shortly followed by an enquiry about my son - sounds all too familiar! yes thanks hes started well at his new school, even had a phone call home today to say how well hes settling in (customer service in school !) proud mum.
started digging a bit of turf from under tree after work, softend in rain but still q difficult. should borrow verdun..
Evening all... didn't do much today just planted my new ecinechia and carex today... Have it a little nettle feed to settle it in a bit god that stuff makes me gagg.... Gotta sweetheart hubby to take me to crocus tomorrow lmao he hasn't seen the Wisley plants!!!! It's not a lie its an omission ( yes I know it's the same in law) Ello Ello verdun! !!!
Evening all ( note subtle joke for Verdun in view of his recently disclosed criminal status )
No rain at all today until the last 15 minutes,it has been warm and sunny,I was forced to abandon planned HW and go out into the garden .
I think Verdun is trying to fool us - I think he's probably a retired pop star or someone trying to hide his celebrity status
