HELLO FORKERS!

DD it won't be just "popping"! Quite complicated with all the flights, hotels etc. Someone posted the choir on Utube and they were invited to sing, Faure's Requiem, together with some other choirs. They will have to practice together when we get there. There will be a Gala dinner too, evening dress. Choir's secretary is arranging a boat trip with dinner too. I'm a little worried by the skyscrapers, I'm really a country bumpkin, might have to escape to sit in Central Park! We'll be there about a week, but as we are flying from Heathrow and staying with relatives a couple of nights first we'll be away about 10 days.

Why will I want to wipe it off next year? Used for long stay perennials and shrubs.

Such a cute under gardener, Wintersong. Your garden is looking lovely.

Here are some roses I took pics of last night.

Good news Liri

Lovely day here, 23°. Been cleaning garden furniture for my charity Strawberry Tea on Saturday.

Also went to Supermarket, bought lots of dog food as we are going to New York next week. Housesitter coming. OH's choir has been invited to sing in Carnegie Hall.

OH has been in England, he's now on a train, I must go and pick him up soon.

It's my birthday

Favourite gardening activity

I like pricking out and  potting on in the greenhouse on cool days and planting in the flower beds, best. To do with being involved in the garden, but not actual work, I like wandering around sniffing the scent of the flowers, especially roses.

How to make durable plant markers?

I use pencil to write on white plastic labels, 2B, long lasting. But this year I found a web site with black labels and a white paint pen, reasonable price, so I'm giving them a go for plants in the borders. Looks quite pro!

Rudbeckia - Cherry Brandy

Posted: 28/05/2015 at 15:39

Well, I'm not growing them again. Poor germination, poor growth, dull dusky red flowers and they all died in the winter. But it was -8° a few times.

This year I'm trying Zinnia Profusion Cherry which are already starting to flower, bought as plug plants.
