Still basking in the success of a weekend where LOADs got done ! Mizzly here too, but just done the garden walkround anyway. Lupins and peonies need a daily inspection, as they about to burst their buds any day, and don't want to miss it !
Forecast dry for tomorrow - got my afternoon at Chelsea, so fingers crossed it doesn't get spoilt by the rain. It is one of the highlights of my year
Hi Andy - posts crossed - glad your boys did well !
Morning, everyone. Quite nice still, weather-wise, at the moment,so I'm hoping for good progress in taking up that lawn. We're doing it in stages and planting each area before we move on to the next. I also have hanging baskets to plant and a LOT of seedlings growing on in modules which will need to be potted on agaiin over the next couple of weeks.
Chicky, that morning garden tour is very important! My paeonies are about to burst into flower, too. (it must be a sign of my age that I still spell that flower with the extra a! ) One bit of good news yesterday ws that the clematis Jackmanii Superba planted last year to grow through a jasmine and that seemed to be dead has emerged alive and well. Maybe it just comes through later than some other clematis? Actually, I was thinking of taking out the jasmine. It is a bit tender and doesn't really seem to be thriving.
Well, those are my great garden thoughts for the day! Have a good day, everyone, especially those poor souls who have to go to work.
That'll be me GG
Dry just now but we might be getting rain again later...typical!
Have been painting a large terracotta pot for a phormium to go in. Looking quite good and may do a few more. At least I won't need to use the pickaxe to put it in like I did the other day with the clematis- my back still hasn't recovered
Hope you all have a good day. GG take care when you're lifting your grass...of course you're only 27 so it shouldn't be a problem
Good morning all,
Overcast and drizzly here, but its what the gardens and allotments need, warmth and a bit of drizzle is perfect for growing stuff.
Ive been awake since 2am this morning, I had an awful nightmare and didn't want to go back to sleep as I was scared I would dream it again, then the dream faded from my mind as I focused thinking about our allotment and my friends wedding we went too. Then, my mind started racing, I got so excited that I finally have a greenhouse, ive been waiting years to get it. But alas, that kept me awake further.
Then, around 2.30am/3am two birds started singing, of course it sounded louder than normal due to lack of traffic etc. but they kept me awake from then through to around 4.30am where I noticed it was starting to get light. The dawn chorus was in full swing by then and I gave up trying to get back to sleep choosing instead to turn on my kindle and have a little read of Gardeners World website.
By 5am I was ready to get up and, thought about getting some washing done but I didnt want to disturb hubby so I laid there until the alarm went of at 6am. Where I feel asleep for 1/2hr before dragging my very tired bum out of bed.
Now, Im at work, eating breakfast before the troups arrive, wondering how Ill get through today - Yawn!
HAGD all and hope you got more sleep than me last night.
Right, off to work - OH at home today so in charge of mollycoddling tomatoes - only two more work days after today
Have a good day folks - hope the mizzle dries up quickly
Morning all, I was hoping to start rescuing my wrongly dug vegetable patch (explained in a fruit and veg post because I did not know how to dig one properly to start with) but "rain stopped play". So I'm just looking at it sorrowfully from a distance as I have the day off.
Good morning everyone. Lots of rain overnight by the looks of it and looking fairly drab this morning. It's a work day for me so no gardening today.
have a good day peeps!
Good morning forkers
Not so sunny but warm and dry. Things really growing now.
As usual, they got the weather forecast wrong again. Often down here that happens. It's meant warmer drier comditions ....looks promising for week ahead. Hoping dove gets good weather for her stay in Cornwall
Been pulling off the dead daffodil foliage and the "tidyness" is returning....viz. I can see the emerging summer plants and they have more room to grow properly
Have nice day folks
Morning all bit of a dull start but not too cold got a load of bedding to put out where exactly I don't know which they gave you spacings for bedding plants
Domt think spacings are tooooooo important. I guess I do it by spontaneous judgement......sounds rather grand, doesn't it?......probably by hand span, finger to thumb. They have enough room to thicken out but close enough to knit together.
Windy here again today,,hopefully it will calm down a bit later.
Off to GC for OH to get some more plants for his pond,irises I think.I may have to force myself to purchase one or two items.!....would like some more French lavender and alpines for newly replanted stone sink and.............
Have a good day all
Bank holiday today, Pentecost Monday. Looked at English calender and it's next Monday. Why? It's meant to be for Whitsun or Pentecost? Strange.
Going to lunch with son. He and his wife bought a house with a large garden that has never been a garden, Like a rough field on a slope. Landscape man coming this afternnoon so son wants me to talk to him.
That sounds exciting busy lizzie.
Morning. Early bird today. Someone keeps waking me around about 5.30 and usually, I eventually manage to drop off again, but not today. So am feeling very annoyed. Why does anyone need to get up at such an unearthly hour just to sit and watch tv,
Drizzling rain today so won't be weeding today. Don't think the rain I am having is going to make a mark.
FG what are you painting your pot with? Have a couple of uninteresting ones so quite like the idea of doing that.
Good morning all.
Dull here, 15 degrees outside, doesn't feel like it. Off delivering tom plants to friends as I can't move in GH for them. Cumbers still indoors & will have to be potted on, I so wish it would warm up and stay that way.
Good heavens KEF, 15° in Yorkshire and only 12° in Dordogne!
Perhaps we could plant annuals in the handbags!
Blinking raining!!! Looks like potting on under cover is the only gardening that will get done today.
Morning TT. Sorry about the early morning TV, though I am married to a man who gives concerts (hymns only) in his sleep at around 3 a.m., so am having difficulty working up sympathy for someone who gets woken at 5.30. I used to contemplate murder, but now sigh philosophically and remember that I don't have to go to work in the morning. That's before the semi-strangulation.
BL, it is Pentecost weekend here, too, but the British Bank Holiday has been separated from the religious celebration so that it can happen at a regular time every year. Easter and Pentecost are calculated from the Jewishs calendar, which has lunar months. That's why Easter moves around each year. Sorry if you knew this!
GG, watch the news.
