Morning all.


Happy birthday Chicklet.


Looks like being a lovely summer day. I have some bits of HW to do, packing but not much, and getting horses hay ready for a 6.30am breakfast tomorrow before going to the airport. But I hope I can get out this afties and do some gardening.

Have you only just discovered The Throw Down Hosta? I've really enjoyed it. Down to the last 4 now. The one I like is still there

Slowly! Little nibbles of chocolate and little licks of the middle, to make it last

It's like this, pale two tone pink, called Pierre de Ronsard in France.

Have done some pruning and weeding and scattering of poppy seeds. Good to be outside but it's all pretty wet and the mole is active again


Bought an Eden Rose this morning and now haven't a clue where to put it. Do they mind shade?

Bare root roses are planted when they are dormant in the winter months, but if they have been grown in a pot you can plant them anytime. B3 they won't have made much root growth yet so treat them as bare root and plant them in their permanent homes as soon as possible.


Did some pruning and weeding this afternoon and scattered a couple of old packet of poppy seeds into the borders. Don't suppose it will work, never have much luck with poppies.

I hope your Harry cat recovers well, Topbird.


Spent ages this morning trying to get the Car Hire people on the phone. They'd changed the airport from Stansted to Luton, but not Thursday to Saturday. I hope it's OK when we get there.


Log/handy man has come to bash in poles for the summer paddock fence that got damaged in the wind. When I went to have a look I noticed that a lot of the roof of the horses' summer shelter has blown off. Yet another expense. Have just been out to buy more fence posts. While we were out we noticed that an old garden centre that had closed down some time ago has reopened  I bought an Eden rose and a Ceanothus and some glyphosate, before it all disappears. Daughter 1 gave me an Eden rose and it's doing really badly. Thought I'd put this one in a different place and if it does OK I can tell her it's the one she gave me and I moved it. Is that a sin? The one she gave me was 34€ from the big GC, Jardiland. This one was only 12€.
