What's the star in your garden right now

Posted: 05/10/2014 at 14:06


 


 

Salvia "Wendy's wish" has been out for a bit and geranium "Rozanne" hasn't stopped all summer.

 

HELLO FORKERS!

We thought that as it wasn't actually raining and the forecast is rain, that we'd lunch outside. I was cold although I wore a fleece. It's 13°. What a change! I was sleeveless yesterday.

So sorry hear your news Stacey, keep fighting and you'll get through it and be gardening in the spring. We are all behind you.

Good to have you back KEF. Did you have a lovely time?

It rained quite a bit in the night but the garden was very dry, so that's good.

Yesterday I started doing something I've been meaning to do for 2 years, but we didn't have any gravel. Now that we've been to get some with OH's little trailer I've been able to start sorting around his shed. I am making a neat (I hope) narrow gravel border around it so he can mow up to it neatly. I removed half a barrow of soil, put down a fabric membrane and then the gravel, mixed with anti-cat granules (probably won't work).

The earth I mixed with compost and rotted manure and planted my Rosa Complicata from David Austin that I bought in June in a large pot. No room in the borders. Impulse buy!

Strictly 2014

Missed Strictly Went to see OH sing in a concert and he said he would record it and he forgot. I haven't mastered the complicated machine yet.

HELLO FORKERS!

Back from the concert OH was singing in. Having hot chocolate.
I'd asked him to record Strictly because of going to the concert and I still haven't mastered the weird timer thing and he said OK, but he forgot

Haven't really read back properly, but saw Jo is back, hello Jo.

Past bedtime.

HELLO FORKERS!

Wow, BM, that's a lot of viewings. Are you in a popular part of the country? But I can never remember where people live, except Dove (because of childhood memories) oh and Verdun of course and DD.

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all.

Dove, I will need more cat food soon, Apricot has been getting through it at a rate of knots!

Blue sky, but, for once, nothing much planned for today, some gardening no doubt. Could put the gravel around OH's shed, was planned for about 2 years ago but only collected the gravel this week! But OH and his choir are in a light hearted concert tonight so going to that. Will have to record "Strictly".

HELLO FORKERS!

My garden was accepted today for the new French Open Gardens. Will be open in May 2015. It still has some colour.

 

Has any one made a gardening cake before

What a gorgeous cake that is, Marion, a work of art.
