Busy Lizzie's Open Garden

Nerves are understandable, but the garden looks amazing  I'm getting in the tardis with KEF

Fairy - Chicky is right, we are taking some Guides to Dublin for 5 days  We are travelling on public transport, leaving at 6.28 am   and arriving at our hostel at 6.30 pm  I'm looking forward to it  Apart from the early start  I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, and would be happy for a medal 

Fingers crossed for the weather for tomorrow for you, and everyone 

Fidget, I've bought from the Nunns before  I bought some Roscoea (yellow & purple ones) and some helibores. My yellow ones come again but not the purple ones

Afternoon all

Been doing more bits for the Dublin trip - only 10 days away now

GC shopping got rained off yest  so the new pots are still waiting for the compost to enable me to fill them  I do have some plants for them - one will have my witch hazel, not sure on the other two  Need some more planning  Oh, and a trip to the local market  Might find some sticky plants there!

Hope you are feeling better Lizzie

Well, no spoilers from me ....... but I liked the winning garden 

I also like the sewing bee and bake off! 

The Great Chelsea Garden Design Challenge

I like it  There, I've said it 

It's not 'real gardening' but then neither is Chelsea. 

I too am enjoying Joe Swift on this more than I do on other programmes. He does seem to be interested in helping the 'designers' out too, which is nice to see 

I have agreed with the judges so far . . . my fav is the Geordie but am not sure he'll win.

Yesterday I managed to scavenge 3 large plastic pots  Now I have to fill them  But before I can do that I need compost. Pa Panda is taking me to the GC to get the bags tomorrow  

Wonky, I know you can put Eric in a pot - that's where my azalea is. Not sure how it works in the soil

Gosh, where have you a all gone? I popped off to help at Rainbows  They had a tour of Tescos who are doing something for young uns about where food comes from - had a whole bit with where different veg comes from. Then had dinner with my friend 

Glad you are feeling better Dove 

Lovely pics Lizzie and Fairy 

Good luck to all those with littlies doing exams

Afternoon all 

Sorry you're not well Dove  Hang on tight to the sofa  

Have been a little absorbed by a book that I've just finished so now I'm back 


Posted: 10/05/2015 at 15:48

Well I'm back and short breaded out  Wish you had been there Fairy, I ate too much! Best one in the plain shortbread (Guides) was a lemony one, and then we had to judge millionaires shortbread (leaders). I don't think I could manage anymore 

Think it's time for a coffee and a spot of bench holding down
