Chelsea Flower Show

I think Monty is doing a good job, but he looks a bit tired. Prefer him at Chelsea to GW. Alan T has been on TV showing his own show garden, liked him too. I like Nikki Chapman, she's human, sympathetic and funny and quite attractive. Why do women presenters have to be "eye candy" ? She's a TV presenter, you don't need big gardening knowledge to present Chelsea and there is a mixture of presenters anyway, some of whom are gardening experts.

Thanks Dove and Nut, great photos, looks lovely. Glad you had a good day. Jealous, rained here!

Oh dear, sounds awful. I hope you manage to get a night's rest. Perhaps you need antibiotics, could be an infection. Go to A&E tomorrow. When I was a nurse I don't remember men saying it hurt that much, perhaps they were putting on a brave face. I've removed catheters and no one even said "ow".

Thank you David. I love your garden. I would like to know the name of the dark clematis too.

Morning all.

I hope everyone who is going out enjoys their day and the rain holds off.

Cranes fly over my house every spring and autumn, they make a hell of a racket. They were early this year, end of February, also higher than usual so photo not very good.

Have weeded and added Nicotiana and Busy-Lizzies to the round bed under the robinia tree.

Howling gale now, storms forecast.

Mrs. Garden's mistake  made me laugh!

Dove can't take sugar in her tea, Campari and soda not sweet enough for me. Like white wine though, and Martini Bianco with lemonade.

I remember Geoffrey Smith, I liked him, but he did like his dwarf conifers! I have a book by him.

I liked Monty presenting Chelsea tonight better than I like him of GW. Thought he did a good job.

You're a brave man, Mike, but I hope the Doc can give you something better for pain.

I know what it's like to lose someone, but I was only 47 when he died. Over 15 years ago. Have re-built my life since, but wanted to die at the time, although I have 4 lovely children. Met 2nd OH 6 years ago. When I look back I think it is probably easier being widowed earlier (never easy) but will probably have to go through it again, he's older than me.
