IT'S MY BIRTHDAY....PART TWO

Posted: 17/03/2016 at 08:59

I think Flumpy's birthday is on the 23rd?

What is your weather like?

Posted: 16/03/2016 at 22:15

Cold and grey.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Posted: 16/03/2016 at 22:14

The forecast had been good, but it was grey and cold. I was in the garden for over 3 hours today, pruning, chopping and weeding.

That's a very superior kneeling mat.

Had a good meal out, 9 of us - 6 ladies and 3 men. I was glad they chose my local restaurant, I've known the nice French family owners for years.

Anyone started there cosmos seeds yet?

I'm growing a different one this year called Antiquity. But sometimes I wonder why I bother, they don't seem to like the hot dry summers in Dordogne.

Sending hugs for Chicky, what a worry it must all be. Hopefully Mr C's meds will be sorted and he'll feel better.

M&S food is yum, Yvie. I hope secondborn's house is lovely when it's done.

I'm going out to a restaurant with friends. Must get ready. OH has gone to choir practice. I feel a bit grubby, having been gardening for over 3 hours.

Don't forget to sent a photo of the flowers, Uncle, we'll be wanting to know what it was.

2 feet isn't too bad at all. It's less than that in parts of my garden before you hit rock. That's 60 cm and I grow roses in pots that deep.

I have some Ice Follies and they look like that.

Overgrown backgarden

Tackle a bit at a time, less daunting than thinking of the whole lot. You have quite a few stinging nettles in there so be careful! If you want a wildlife garden they are good for certain caterpillars and butterflies, but I would confine them to a corner. The rest need digging out and their fine orangey roots run sideways.

As Fairygirl says, I would tidy up, remove anything that you really don't want. Then sit back and plan with a good gardening book.
