Morning all. Grey and damp. Nothing to say yet, just got up.

We all need a bit of cheering up

Hey, Flowers, lovely photos but we are trying to stick to one favourite!! Which is hard!

When I was expecting my first baby I went to National Childbirth Trust antenatal classes. The midwife described Fidget's beach while we were all lying on the floor and some of us went to sleep!

Actually got outside and gardened today.

Been reading about Zopiclone, don't like the sound of it.

Making homemade pizza tonight as I was making bread rolls as well.

What a good idea for a thread. Lovely photos everyone.

I loved my new Lady Emma Hamilton rose and she smelt wonderful. Here she is on 30th August, flowered on and off all year.

 

Not sure what to do with this space.

I think a fairy statue would look lovely there, brighten up a dark spot and it's romantic and suits your beautiful garden.

Hydrangea petiolaris is much better on a wall. It likes to spread out sideways. I would be inclined to leave an ash tree on its own.

Perpetual spinach is still green and producing. Last year the purple sprouting broccoli did well, but I didn't grow it this year.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

How lovely, Scroggin, my favourite sort of dog. I've had them for nearly 40 years. They are very intelligent and easily trainable. My were all trained not to go in flower beds and not to poo on the lawn. But now my oldie, 13, is getting a bit forgetful, but I think he's not really aware, bit incontinent. He's been so good until the last year.

I've weeded and tidied up the greengage tree bed this afternoon. The tree fell down in a gale and OH has chopped it up. But there are new branches further down the trunk below where it snapped.

David Austin Roses, are they worth it?

Roses are hungry and thirsty and chalky soil is usually poor and dry. I have limestone, roses need a lot of feeding and watering, but I grow them in big pots too. I had acid clay when I lived in Kent and they did very well with less care.
