Beautiful gardens punkdoc and KEF, but I knew that already Those pulmonaria are such a gorgeous blue. Must get some.

Evening all. Busy weekend. OH is singing in 2 concerts with his choir. Yesterday I made sandwiches and cake for 35, the orchestra and soloists. Tomorrow is lunch party with the choir and their guests, the conductor, soloists and some of the orchestra have come from England. I'm making Coronation Chicken. Bedtime soon, I'm an hour ahead of you.

Broad beans are coming up!

Your beds are coming on really well Tracey.

I still have a lot of weeding to do, but tulips are coming out. Moss in the lawn, oh dear!

That's gorgeous, Panda, is it usually this early? What sort is it?

Wow, you have got a lot crammed in there Ecobaby, and it looks very healthy. I should be able to grow peppers in France, but they are never very good. Probably don't water them enough.

I'm jealous too, puncdoc. Can't grow meconopsis with limestone and summer heat here. Admired them at Forde Abbey on holiday.

I love looking at photos of people's gardens. SweetPea has some lovely cheerful pots. Hope Tracey finds the charger, want to see how her new beds are getting on. Looking forward to Dove's pond when it's planted. Berghill has a wonderful garden, looks bigger than mine.

Thank you for liking my garden Sweet Pea. I usually like it, but not today. I was digging rampant periwinkle out that was taking over the bed and it was growing under an Albertine rose which is very very prickly. When Albertine is out it is a pretty peachy pink and smells wonderful but it isn't very friendly!

Begonias keep warm in the GH.

Busy day. Rode horsey this morning, gardened this afternoon. Swept out garage, had been keeping hay in it, now the cars can go back. In between things like putting out the washing, making lunch etc.

They are lovely, Matt.

Once, years ago, when I lived in Kent, I sowed a packet of Senetti in the GH. They all came up and grew into decent plants! GH was full of them. Stunning. Good thing I had 2 GHs then as there was no room for anything else. I put some around the house and gave some away, but they liked the GH best. I've bought them since for house plants but usually manage to kill them. No good at house plants.
