HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 14/05/2014 at 12:51

Have finished moving enough stuff out of the GH so I've now finished planting the tomatoes, sweet peppers and cucumbers.

Finished planting the outside tomatoes, peppers and courgettes, not the cucumbers - still hardening off. Planted French marigolds by the tomatoes and by the beans. Nasturtiums all coming up by the broad beans (which are flowering).

This afternoon, back to flower gardening.

Morning all.

Been busy sorting non-gardening stuff.

Hope the day continues like that, Clari. We should have sun for the next 3 days

There's always a lot to do in mine, Cleo. Gardens change and grow when you're not looking! Especially weeds!

plant ID please

The perennial one is pretty tough, flowers fairly early in the year. It's seeded itself in cracks in the paving of my terrace, so pretty. My daughter gave me the original plant over 15 years ago.

JUST FOR MIKE

Amanda, Mike's daughter sent message to Fishy, on another thread, in case any one wonders. Mike wanted her to send message to us, safely through the operation. Get well soon Mike. Hugs.

Yes, leave it there, parents will be distraught, but keep the cat away for the moment.

Message from Mike

Let's hope that the operation has done the trick. Lovely of Mike to think of us all when going through such an ordeal. Best wishes for a good recovery Mike, and take it easy.

Thank you yarrow, but my computer skills can't cope with posting them and writing descriptions!

Did quite a bit of gardening this afternoon. Weeded the greengage tree bed that I dug last year. Planted some Echium Blue Bedder round the edge, a penstemon, some ladybird poppies and 3 purple salvias. Planted up 1 trough and 2 pots. Planted out 10 tomatoes and 1st batch of runner beans.

I put some photos in the gallery, started trying to name them, but the names came out in the wrong places. How did Dove manage, above? Months ago it worked well, but now whenever I post photos everything comes out in the wrong order.
