I was meant to be on Granny duty today, but daughter's meeting was cancelled. Glad you are feeling better YvieStevie. Grandchildren can be so sweet sometimes.

Have planted 4 packets of tulips that daughter gave me. But first had to dig the clay and work in compost. In the long border that didn't get much attention last year.

DD, it was 2 1/2 hours, got out before it finished, the rest didn't really concern me anyway.

Was out of the meeting in time for the GC before it closed for lunch. Got compost and some trellis for my latest clematis.

Not just dogs who eat Lego, my daughter did when she was about 2, managed to rescue some from the potty! She was my 3rd child so it was hard to keep it out of reach.

Morning all, and Dove and Pat. I'm up earlier than usual as I have a meeting to go to, French so it'll take ages. It'll be rush hour on the way into town

I want to buy compost on the way home but I expect the GC will be shut for lunch.

Where is Autumn?

Gertie, I think that plant is an Aeonium.

Lucky that Charlie doesn't want to take casts of boar poo!  Well done getting garden up to date. I'm still struggling with it, just lack motivation today, feel tired. Haven't planted tulips yet.

Sorry you are feeling low YvieStevie. Hope you aren't sickening for something.

Lovely photos, Obelixx.

I found the forging of antique shears interesting and the using of them afterwards. But topiary isn't really my thing, too formal and so much extra work!

boring gardening jobs

I have lots of deep and profound thoughts while gardening, but I have a memory like a sieve

Surgeons only wear the minimum under their gowns when it's hot, at least they did in the 70s when I was nursing in an operating theatre!
