Wintersong, you would never guess it's a boring rectangle, you've arranged and planted it so well.

What did you do in your garden today?

Thejazz, welcome to the forum. I wish you could come and rid my garden of longstanding, overgrown ivy.

Good Evening FORKERS

  Ha ha Dove!  I meant trees of course.

Morning all.

As we are on the subject of feet, mine are large and flat and I have plantar fasciitis which makes them burn when I'm on them too long. Nuisance when sight seeing.

Lovely day, gardening again. No gardening tomorrow. Going to a meeting in Bergerac, then shopping for my charity garden party on Saturday, then arranging the furniture for it and the plant stall, hope the weather stays nice.

Letters keep being left out of my typing again, keep having to correct it. It was OK yesterday.

Today, I did a load more weeding, cut grass on edges of walls, put in support for the peas, watered some pots and weedkilled the drive.

I killed Eupatorium chocolate, not on purpose, but we had a drought and I didn't water enough, it was in the 30°s.

Swiss Sue asked if I'd had the Mistral, too far west for that, but we did have gales recently and one big, one medium and two small trees fell on the electric fences. The horses got very excited and the strong young man who does the too heavy for me work came and chopped them up.

Bev, your front garden is very pretty. I wonder if I'll see it when we arrive in Newhaven on 16th June. Will probably go to your local GC as didn't see it properly because of the rain last time. Wonder if they'll have your clematis that I liked.

At last, Dove's garden, don't think I've seen it before. Bigger than I thought from what Dove said some time ago. Like the shady spot and lovely tidy veggie garden.

Lovely forget-me-nots fidgetbones.

Oh nut, I so know what you mean! and then plants spoil the colour scheme because they don't like the soil or situation so you just have to make do. Sometimes it works out well. Then you think I'll do blue and yellow and you find the plants don't flower at the same time!

I like pastel colours, blues, pink, lilacs but I also like bright colours dotted about to liven it up. So the red tulips over blue forget-me-nots really appeals. I like bright tulips in the spring, and alliums like purple jewels but over a haze of pretty gentleness. But as summer progresses I start liking sunny colours like golden rudbeckias and orange heleniums.

Could do with a glass of Pimms, Gilly. 25° and sunny today, done lots of weeding, arranged support for the peas and weedkilled the drive.
