Morning all. Was 8° when I got up. Cloudy. Going to Leclerc SM.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Have at last done some gardening. Weeded the tomatoes in the GH, fed them, watered them, put out mouse traps. Deadheaded, weeded and tidied up in the flower garden, 2 barrows full.

Need help identify some plants

I've found traps work best. But in the borders the tunnels are too deep for the traps.

Have deadheaded and weeded, 2 barrow loads full. Nice day, sunny, low 20s, did 3 loads of sheet and towel washing.

Wintersong, did the dentist ask him to take the denture out so soon? If it's left out the gap could close a bit and the denture could be too tight. I'm not an expert though, son is a dentist.

At last a day when I'm not going out and nothing is planned and it's sunny but not too hot. So I will be able to do some serious dead heading and tidying up.

My daughter's cat is staying until next week when she moves into her new house. My cat doesn't care for him much, she'll be relieved when he's gone I think. Anyway, he caught a mouse yesterday and brought it alive into the kitchen. It went behind a radiator and I left the door open and removed the cat so I hope it got away.

It was a good party last night, yummy food.

I thought the potting shed was the prize, but now I've read your other posts and seen that it's a present from husband for your birthday on Sunday. I hope you have a lovely day. I saw all the other lovely photos of your garden.

Some of us have posted pictures of our gardens on this thread. Have you seen it?

Doomed I tell you.......

We've had the opposite problem in Dordogne, doomed from the heat (mid 30s in the shade) and lack of rain, lawn looks dead - maybe it is. Even the sunflowers in the fields have been drooping. At last it has rained and is cooler. Hope it rains some more.

I'd forgotten the birthday thread, haven't had a notification for ages.
