Too hot to garden today. Have done ironing in the sitting room as it's cool there, thick stone walls, high ceiling, was a barn.
Your garden is so pretty, Wendy.
Hello all. Pippin sounds a lucky girl.
Been out at a friend's. She's decided to become an agent for a company selling Aloe Vera products. Ordered something for my elderly horse who has rubbed himself sore because of flies.
I will be watching, curiosity, and I like Alan and I like gardens.
If you want wildflowers then membrane is not a good idea. If the brambles and nettles aren't dealt with and got rid of they will sent roots sideways which will crawl along under the membrane and pop out at the edges. A lot of wild flowers won't want to grow in the shade of the trees or the dry earth under them, so you need to research what to plant.
We hope to go to Helmingham Hall some time in July too when we are in Suffolk.
Thank you Runny beak, I hope others find it. The last 2 years threads have had some lovely photos.
We will be going to Suffolk in July so I'm hoping to post pics of Beth Chatto's garden, Hyde Hall and Bressingham Gardens.
Morning all. Gosh Nanny Beach, you must be knackered!
We are going out to lunch today with friends in the village.
Mine was due on the 3rd July!
1 could be a Kolkwitzia and 2 could be a Weigela, but like the others I can't see well enough. 3, I agree is phygelius and 4 is a hebe.
