Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 09/02/2015 at 09:08

Have done nothing since mid January, too cold, ground frozen half the time, icy wind the last few days, even a sprinkle of snow here in Dordogne. But sun is out today.

Thank you Fishy, but there's no need to apologise.

Is it a sunny or a shady wall?

Plant ID's please

I think Liri has got them all right, except the phlox could be phlox subulata, more common than phlox douglasii.

When I saw Charlie on the branch, then under the branch for a moment I thought he'd fallen in!

I really like fruit cake as well as carrot cake

Watched too much TV today, finishing with Mr. Selfridge, but I did do ironing while I watched, including two big duvet covers.

Liri, I don't think clematis is the best for north east and acid soil. But I expect someone will advise you, I have alkali soil.

Thats the trouble with having pets, they dont live for very long and then we are heartbroken when they go. So sorry Lizzie for your loss, he had a lovely life with you.

 

Lyn, Tigger hasn't died yet, he has liver cancer.

Hugs RB. Lovely goose and dog. But that is the trouble with animals, they don't really live that long compared with us. But it's worth it. I've had 6 Border Collies over the last 37 years.

He still won't touch dogfood, but ate fish and rice for breakfast. Has now had his cortisone tablets. Short walk because of the icy wind, his tummy was shaved for the ultrasound scan.

Cheap greenhouse - advice please!

It's hard to tell, but it looks very tiny, once you are in it. I wonder how much room there is. I've seen this one on Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/Summer-Garden-Buildings-Greenhouse-Polycarbonate/dp/B00CM6GHJ8/ref=sr_1_45?s=outdoors&ie=UTF8&qid=1423400536&sr=1-45 , but it's £215. It has good reviews and is 2 foot longer, looks more like a real greenhouse.
