Where's my tidy gene?

I just opened my garden for a charity garden party. Afraid I did lots of weeding on my knees on a mat with a trowel. But what made the biggest difference was OH mowing. Took him a fraction of the time it took me! That was last Saturday, weeds, especially bindweed are coming back already!

Nothing venture, nothing gain. Mine is in a pot, but it's in full sun. Feed and water is the key when you haven't much room.

What's the star in your garden right now

It's hard to choose one star this morning. William Shakespeare rose, I only bought it this spring, very small, looked in need of a home and now look at it! A blue salvia that flowers all summer, covered with bees. A red Sweet William which the photo doesn't do justice to. It really shines out.

Morning all. Another hot day coming.

Loads of mangetout peas to pick and freeze. OH picked loads of raspberries yesterday. We are going to England on Sunday for 2 weeks, so if the housesitter doesn't pick and freeze the broad beans we'll lose a lot of them. I hope he picks the sweet peas.

HELLO FORKERS!

Just had a look, met the chap on thread about clearing a garden with lots of weedkiller. Best thing is to ignore it all before it blows up like it did before with a certain someone. They had similar names - BB ring any bells?

Hectic day. Human relations, not gardening. Committee meeting this afternoon, road was up, had to do huge detour, 40 mins late. Sons x 2 & brother rang this evening. Got washing in in the dark.

Morning all.

Punkdoc when you said "avert your eyes ladies", I thought you weren't going to put anything on!

Glad you had a good evening Chicky.

22° already and sunny. Must freeze some Mangetout peas and make redcurrant cordial.

HELLO FORKERS!

I don't mind ironing, I do it in front of the TV, sitting down.

I sometimes get a page full of code, instead of a photo, too, Wintersong. Some photos appear sideways, some people say when they enlarge them they turn around the right way - not on my laptop they don't.

Been shopping, having cup of tea, bought a bunch of bare root leek plants in the GC. Must go and plant them and sort the outside tomatoes - sideshoots and tying up.
