My oriental poppies are coming out.

 And the double aquilegias are still in flower, been out some time now.

 And the pansies round the sundial are still well out.

GG thanks for showing us the photos of your lovely garden. I was hoping for one of your hair after your comments last night!

What did you do in your garden today?

A lovely day at last. Removed 3 barrowloads of weeds, dug, manured and planted in a bed that I hadn't touched for a year or sorted properly for 2 years. Got depressed with it because the deer kept eating the plants I wanted and the plants that survived were the extra vigorous sort. Ache.

OH fenced the main flower garden against deer, but this bit is outside the fence.

Had smoked salmon and home grown salad for lunch sitting in the sun. Felt like being on holiday.

You have a lovely garden, Wintersong. And not a single slug nibble on the hostas. They all enlarged very well too. Bet you are looking forward to the greenhouse!

I had suggested just having one Forkers, eg Good Day Forkers, but no-one wanted to - at least no one who was reading the posts at that moment.

GG, I'm not in England, that was from a previous trip - too many flowers out in that photo for now! With the awful weather.

WW glad you enjoyed it, good thing you went today, not yesterday (rain). I saw Chelsea on TV tonight and Chris B's garden was my favourite too. They showed the mad Australian jumping in the pool!

Cold, 5° and wet this morning, 9° and very windy this afternoon. Hoovered house and have just potted up a load of annuals into bigger pots for a charity plant sale I'm having at a tea time garden party here  on the 8th. Hope it doesn't rain. Usually does!

Gloomy this morning, poured in the night, woke me up, cold and wet. Going to the dentist for a crown prep, but he is my son so it will be nice to see him otherwise. Arthur Itis is showing up, in hands, hip and knee, makes gardening harder.
