Have you worked out how it goes Dove
Have you worked out how it goes Dove
Getting there Nut - I've discovered that it takes pics in several different sizes and formats - if I take smaller ones I can post them on here without resizing - but I still need to buy Adobe Elements - they do courses on it in the city so I'll put my name down for one of those then I'll be able to do all sorts of wonderful things
Eventually settled dog down to sleep at 4 thi morning. Worst night of the week. Please excuse spelling/typo errors acn hardly focus. Will take him to vets to see if they can suggest any thing - they have a behaviour specialist there.
Hope to go to Malvern tomorrow but not if I feel like this
Dove I now keep a notebook in bag permanenetly - well you never know waht you see or covert.
Don't know about gardening today , but do have some tete a tete daffs to plant. Will see if brain becomes functioning after more tea (don't drink coffee1)
Love East Ruston Dove. Will be great this time of year. They have a new walled garden which was beautifully planted last time i was there. Sure there will still be loads of colour still. Would you be able to do me a favour whilst you are there and pace out how far apart they planted their grove of white stemmed Himalayan birches? (down by the wildlife pond). I am thinking of copying ( on a smaller scale) and theirs is one of the nicest I have seen.
Sorry you had a bad night Matty - didn't know you we're having problems with your dog. Hope they can suggest something that helps.
Mrs G - I'm sure your tulips will be just fine.
just wandered round my garden - there is still so much going on - what a fantastic year it has been. My Gertude Jeckyll rose is going for it again - and because it is so still, the perfume is flooding the whole garden. Bliss!!
Morning all. Raining, but needed it as it's been a warm dry week. Runner beans have at last decided to do something and are producing like mad.
Hope you sleep well enough to enjoy Malvern, Matty. Enjoy your visiting, Dove.
My garden is looking pretty at the moment after a dull period, Michaelmas daisies, sedum, rudbeckia, autumn anemones etc, even roses. Photo on Garden Gallery.
Just a quick pop in
Went to local butcher and they have given us 2 tickets for the Malvern. Thing is it's for today so am off now. wa-hay
I was going to spend today listing what I would like - just have to guess
First time of sucessful access and posting to site for a few days,
Hope I have,nt missed too much.will start trying to catch up on other threads later.
Back from Malvern, after running out of energy and momey. Bought lots of tulips for pots.(Not Abbu Hassan, as hoped, but Jaques Armand said it hasn't been available for a couple of years.) Chose an early orange/purple combination with a later magenta/peach combo. Lovely clashes.White alliums for white border. Also focused on alpines and miniatures,both bulbs and plants. Sedums galore. Greenhouse/alpine house is about to become almost exclusively alpineH. Nice project coming up to reorganise everything now first season is behind me. Plan is to plant up in my newly aquired antique clay pots and wait to see the little gems pop up and surprise me.
Matty, do try to go to Malvern. Although expect big crowds... today was as busy as I ever remember which can only be good for the Show's future.. No problems getting in and parking, just busy inside. I had a plan of campaign which is just as well . It was great. Lots of stops for tea and cake.
Hi WW - back from Malvern Free tickets gives you the enrgy to go.
Bought white things but no list so.....
Did get some crocus but were hardly any there, one nurseryman said very popular this year and with his on-line business as well was expecting to run out in the n ext week or 2. Still got the one I wanted - Jenne d'Arc
Also some Rip van Winkle daffs, but lack of list meany couldn't remember th other one or the tulip I wanted!!
As WW said was absolutely packed. Aso bought a very tall white Michalmas daisy but will visit the nursery and gardens in the next week to buy some pinky ones. They hold the National collection and are only about a mile away - over the hill!
Didn't see anything resembling what my burfday pressie will be - Actually wanted to see before we buy as some we have seen are rubbish. Oh - It's an upright cold house in wood on a very tight budget.
Will do Chicky I've told OH so between us we should remember
Hi Chicky... yes roses are having another go... and after doing really well earlier. My best one at the moment is "Corvedale" first seen at Hyde Hall (RHS-Essex). Very strong grower which I can cut back hard , with clean foliage and nice deep pink flower, and lots of it.
Good morning all It's a glorious morning - just the day to visit East Ruston
anyone else coming or have I got to visit it for you?
Please visit it for me Dove and send some nice photos. Have a lovely time.
We aregoing to a wedding anniversary lunch today.
Morning all. Another sunny day ahead here so will make the most of it while it lasts!
Hope the sun shines for you Dove
Watching G'sW and having brekkie. I have pots to fill with bulbs, grass to cut and raised beds to build so I'd better not spend too long on here
Hope everyone has a lovely day whatever they're doing.

Morning - a day for pottering methinks - probably with hand trowel and weeding trug. If i set out to tackle everything that needs weeding i would feel a bit overwhelmed so i am approaching it stealthily instead!
That's the idea Chicky - creep up on it
Then put your feet up MrsGarden. You deserve it
Will get some daffs in today and small groups of wallflowers....if I can find the space at moment. Lychnis coronaria alba has been a mass of grey and white all summer but I will show my appreciation by dumping it on the compost heap. There will be some pieces I can pot up but a group of orange wallflowers will occupy the site for next 6 months. And a poor variety of dahlia will likewise be dumped
Cloudy misty day.....very warm again....here again. Have nice Sunday everyone
Morning all. Haven't been on here for over a week- it feels like a lifetime. Just so busy.
I did loads of marking yesterday and have prep to do today but I really am going to get out and plant up some viola baskets . I want to try to get daff bulbs planted up as well.
I haven't had time to catch up on here- just came straight here so will try to catch up as well later.
Have a great day all whatever you are doing
