What did you do in your garden today?

Are you serious Verdun?

I did some weeding, planted up an trough and a big pot and planted a rather dry bed with 20 gazanias, not Verdun's sort of thing, but gazanias are meant to be OK in dry places and that bit is so dull. It is in sun.

Did some weeding and planted out 20 gazanias in a bed which has shallow soil and is always a bit dry in summer. Hope it works. Planted up another trough and a big pot. It was cold and windy.

That's the same as on a laptop!

I had suggested using photobucket because there was a problem with this site and the photos came out small with whit edges. Normally you should be able to click on a photo here and it should enlarge, but the site has has problems with that too. It works if you use photobucket.

Pretty hanging basket Dean.

Morning all, windy, grey sky. So much to do outside after all the rain we've had, don't know where to start.

How late is this 'spring'?

Posted: 23/05/2013 at 08:32

About 3 years ago I had a garden party for charity the end of May. It was 2° and there was sleet, people still laugh about it, but now they say it was snow! Last year I held it in June and it poured. I live in Dordogne! Cold wet spring here too. A lot is late but the roses are starting to come out.

Well done GG, it looks lovely. Your own little Kew Gardens! I like curves in a garden.

Glad you posted a stylophorum, Nut, as I have them and couldn't remember the name! Looked it up, also called Celandine poppy. I have 2 sorts, the wild species and the cultivated perennial one.

I hope you are feeling better Wintersong.

I've just lost 5 days because of heavy rain, but today was cloudy but dry. Beds too wet to work on so potted up 6 troughs and a pot with petunias, gazanias, geraniums (not all in the same pot!) Will do osteospermums tomorrow and, hopefully, a load more weeding. Still have about 18 more pots to do but they have violas that are still flowering well.
