That was so funny, Hosta

It's been a lovely day, 17° this afternoon, took my pullover off (did have a T shirt underneath). Have done weeding in the veg garden and cut the lavender hedge. Also cleaned the kitchen and washed the floor.

Odd job/log man has done a brilliant job. He's repaired all the electric fences, 4 paddocks in 5 acres, in just 2 days. I've been round and looked at them. Such a relief. I will have to put up some new electric ribbon in a couple of places, I was expecting much more than that.

Morning all.

Happy birthday Chicklet.

Looks like being a lovely summer day. I have some bits of HW to do, packing but not much, and getting horses hay ready for a 6.30am breakfast tomorrow before going to the airport. But I hope I can get out this afties and do some gardening.

Have you only just discovered The Throw Down Hosta? I've really enjoyed it. Down to the last 4 now. The one I like is still there

Slowly! Little nibbles of chocolate and little licks of the middle, to make it last

It's like this, pale two tone pink, called Pierre de Ronsard in France.

Have done some pruning and weeding and scattering of poppy seeds. Good to be outside but it's all pretty wet and the mole is active again

Bought an Eden Rose this morning and now haven't a clue where to put it. Do they mind shade?

Bare root roses are planted when they are dormant in the winter months, but if they have been grown in a pot you can plant them anytime. B3 they won't have made much root growth yet so treat them as bare root and plant them in their permanent homes as soon as possible.

Did some pruning and weeding this afternoon and scattered a couple of old packet of poppy seeds into the borders. Don't suppose it will work, never have much luck with poppies.
