HELLO FORKERS!

Doc said that as I was planning my 2nd and was on the pill I should allow 3 months to get back normal so poor little chap was born in January instead of April, springtime.

HELLO FORKERS!

Hello all. Our visitors have just left for the airport with OH. Having coffee before tackling the long overdue weeding, but it's just rained.

Have I missed all the baby talk? I had 4, now have nearly 8 grandchildren. First baby took 24 hours, hardly got to the hospital in time for the 4th. The nurse told me I couldn't push because she hadn't filled in the admission papers. But it was too late and No 4 was born! Only had 1 painful contraction. Went to hospital because waters had broken, not because of pain. They are all coming to stay in August, except No.4 because he lives nearby, for No.4's baby (grandchild no.7) is being baptised.

Flumpy's pic is very pretty.

These are 2 plants I bought when in England on holiday, haven't had time to plant them yet. Helenium Sahin's Early and Laurentia which I'd never heard of.

 

What's the star in your garden right now

I've tried them twice and they died, also they are very prickly, perhaps they sensed my fear of pricking myself! That's my answer to your question Verdun

Break it up as much as you can, may need a good watering to soften it, add as much compost and manure as you can. Sow or plant annuals if you want something quick for this year. Next year it should then be easier, but there will always be weeds, just a part of gardening, like doing housework. 

Plant suggestion please

I would have said sedums too, fleshy leaved plants can manage better. The sort of plants that grow in walls.
