That has reminded me too ! And my chillis !!
Blue skies here now, but gales forecast. Trees have come out enough now that we can no longer see our neighbours (nice neighbours - but still nicer not to see them)
Good day to all
Chicky-know what you mean about neighbours...
Nice to see the country turning green at last isn't it?
Rubbish weather coming here later too but better for tomorrow so I'll get on with fence. Hoping mycompost bin comes today. Older child primed for signing if it comes when I'm at work
Lovely weather right now but going to be very windy. The extra warmth recently has made everything grow so quickly so garden is filling in nicely.
Got flowering currant and berberis Darwinii pruned yesterday.....can do these in topiary (mounded) shape without affecting flowering so they look good without flowers.
Its amazing isn't it ? How quickly shrubs/plants dominate the garden only to be replaced by the following group of "flowerers" in next to no time. Seasons and time move so fast!
Enjoy the day folks
Morning All. "Day off" today (toddlers in day care/at nanny's) and was itching to mow the lawns but alas I think the weather will thwart me! Never mind though, everything greening up nicely. 'Infrared' sunflowers, Mexican Hats, Calendula and Nasturtiums just starting to show and veg coming along nicely. Wanted to get my cabbage planted out today but may wait til this wind dies down a bit.
will enjoy my usual visit to the GC though. Need compost, lime etc. May just have to have a good old Nanna Nap this afternoon. Smallest toddler up at 6
FG good luck with the fence
Morning all you busy bees. Very windy here but dry, at the moment. Unlike you, no plans to do anything in particular. Story of my life.
Have to say how lovely it is to look out into the garden and see everything growing. One minute it's just bare 'sticks', a bit of sun and the change is remarkable. Best time of the year, IMO.
Morning all. Lovely here right now but gales forecast. I've nothing planned. Lets see what the day brings
wind and rain here last night it started howling and i had to nip in the garden to batten down the hatches. Hopefully it will improve later.
Better today but absolutely no energy. OH says I need another rest day
Really windy. Took my butterflies down yesterday when i saw the forecast. It isn't that cold though. Am wondering where I can put all the plants if this drop in temps happens, GH is already overflowing, cat's banned from it - no room to swing her
You will feel better if you take it easy today
'cat's banned from it - no room to swing her'.
Made me chuckle Matty. I trust that OH is doing all the chores. Hope you start to feel better soon.
Hi Verdun. We are like ships in the night. How's Cornwall weather today? Us folk up North are having a gale!
Tina- remember he's in a different country from the rest of us....
Only 10 degrees here but with the end blowing it's lower than that. Rain hasn't been as bad as predicted...yet'
Compost bin arrived so I will take a look at that and carry on potting on tomatoes. The roots were growing out bottoms of the pots so need to sort that.
You sound better Matty but I'd milk it a bit for a while if I were you....
Force 9 gales here in the Fens; am going to weed the veg beds, but with 2 jumpers and a scarf on!
The weathers deteriorated...was good now windy n wet. Simpy not the best right now...!!!
Thats right Fairygirl I'm in the country of Cornwall. You english tried to hang Trelawney and we have not forgotten that
Arrjak, now that's dedication. Mind you I'm a bit like that too. Have no patience and if I decide to do something in the garden no rain, cold or wind will stop me.
Disappointed cos I wanted to put up my runner bean supports.
It is still bright and sunny here. Just waiting for the promised terrible weather
Nobody likes us English. I don't like clotted cream either.
Sounds like I have to rescue the bins before they start blowing down the road.
Bit late to be saying hello.
Have been to Supermarket and topped up potato bins. Now inside watching the rain and the wind which is blowing quite bad. Enforced rest so might as well have a root around the forum.
Hope wherever you are that no damage happens in your garden.
Kef, you have until 15.59 to say hello here.
I hate the high winds we seem to get these days. Find it quite frightening.
Fed up with sitting doing nothing now. Was OK last 2 days, but feeling OK again so would like to be outside. My grass, (can't call it a lawn) is full of dandelions. That's the trouble with living next door to someone who doesn't bother with their garden. Used to be practically weed free, but not any more. Pesky people.
Fairy hope the wrists feel a bit better. What compost do you use to pot on your Pasque Flowers ?
Glad to see Andy still posting.
crap weather here in south wales rain is hammering down and blowing a gale. I just been out to put some plastic covers on the dahlias i have planted out over the last few days, the wind is wrecking them. My cherry blossom is all over the drive so no fruit again this year! lucky the rest of fruit trees have not flowererd yet so might have some luck with them. same thing happened last year just as the blossom came out and the tulips opened they were ruined. photo below of my new front garden border
Trifid house that border looks great.
