I dunnit! I dunnit! I dunnit! 


I knew you were lurking WS



Am very disappointed Birdy, thought you had the hanging gardens of Breckland


Have been admiring the peonies all week in my area, just love that velvety deep red one the best


Don't knock it Artjak. You're supposed to admire them - the peonies, that is - (the photos are just at my normal high standard) 

 Thankyou Wintersong.

PS Actually, it was quite funny AJ 




Gorgeous colour that peony Birdy. Shines out of the photo. Worth the wait! Mine aren't out yet, but I don't have a red one.


Thanks B-L. Mine aren't yet at their best. Once they're all blooming, and assuming they've not all been knocked flat by freak weather, I'll do another photo shoot. (I'll have to call back the firm of acrobats I like to work with for the special angles I like to achieve) 


Birdy, just take the photos upside-down


said before no problem here just turn my lap top so pic is right way up 

Lovely photos no matter which way they are


They are lovely.  I have a similar one but it hasn't flowered yet, it's being overshadowed by an overgrown and ill-placed crab apple tree which will have to be ripped out soon.  Any tips on how you got the last photo the right way up?




Birdy....for once....words fail me!!!!!

Terrific peonies my love! Well worth persevering!! 


Hi all

This pic is after my first planting. Waiting for global warming to see the next stage

Nice plants Reiver, Like the greenhouse too in the top picture.

Here's an idea I got from the RHS Cardiff flower show in April. I had a Pergola made 2 seasons ago specifically because I've always wanted a Wisteria (that's it on the far left post in top picture. The idea though? Growing Swiss Chard in containers. I've made some shelves to go between the uprights of the Pergola and put Swiss Chard 'Bright Lights' in the top one and sown Beetroot 'Alto' in the lower one. Btw the shelves are level it's me that's leaning! - the shelf at the other end of the Pergola has Strawberry plants in it for 2 strawberry loving grand daughters!




Great idea
