Pretty photos LG and Obelixx.

Congratulations Liri and to son and DIL.

I didn't like the quarry garden either. Chris Beardshaw's garden seemed to be the only one with flowers in it. Are flowers out of fashion?

Been planting up pots today, got quite hot this afternoon.

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Planted up 8 troughs and 12 big pots with petunias, calibrachoas, diascia, rudbeckias, osteospermum, French marigolds, Scaevola, surfinias, Isotoma - but not all mixed together! Still lots more to do.

Mine doesn't flower yet. I have Barnsley and a darker pink shrub one which I cut down every spring or it goes straggly. They certainly don't flower every day of the year.

Debs, just looked back. Alexa is 12 so was spayed about 11 years ago.

I thought concrete gardens were now illegal and it has to be permeable. There are so many good Ideas for front gardens on the Internet now showing you can have parking and a car. My son is a dentist and needed a car  park when he bought his new practice so he put flower beds around the car park.

Thanks Lants, maybe that's it, we have a stray who eats Alexa's food.

Don't know what's got into my cat at the moment. Normally she turns up for brekkies whether she's been sleeping inside or out (choice is hers) and she hangs around the garden, sometimes asleep in the middle of my flowerbeds (I watered her once!). But she's gone all wild, I don't see her all day and she turns up in the evening and won't let me touch her. She has been spayed so she can't be in love. Or can she?

Morning all. Cloudy here.

I still have unwatched Chelsea programmers from last year on the recorder. It's the busiest time of year in the garden, saw last night 's prog though.

Morning all.

My sister had a Springer, ditto.

Cloudy here. Just remembered I have forgotten the supports for the tomatoes in the GH.

Been a lovely day, have gardened.

Watched Chelsea, The Durrells and Granchester.

Did I ever tell you there are wild bees in my old up side down wheelbarrow with the broken wheel? In the Easter Hols they had about 4 honeycombs in it, grandson found them. I'm leaving them in peace, the dear little pollinators.

Referring to a couple ages back, yes, I have dug up runner and broad beans to see if anything was happening.
