Lily P, I'm afraid you'll have to ask someone else to do your greenhouse, I hate doing it - too much like housework! If I liked it then it would have been done ages ago!

Hefty, it's a Pulmonaria, only a year old. I have bigger ones but they are in tight bud. I think it's called "Blue Ensign".

Glad you had a good weekend Chicky.

It was a nice afternoon. I've been preparing pots and propagators for sowing and sown broad beans, sweet peas and mange tout peas, in a cold frame. GH is a mess, needs a clean and a sort out. The polycarbonate window had blown off  It's a real pain to fix.

Lovely photos, Fairygirl.

My snowdrops are starting to go over, green seed heads forming. One of the clumps of daffodils are little mini ones that a friend gave me in a pot a couple of years ago, forgot I planted them. The daffodils are looking a bit tatty, out too early and battered by last week's rain.

They won't appear in the order I post them.

 

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Of course it does, Hosta.

I've washed my 3 electric propagators  and some seed trays. Have sowed broad beans, mange tout peas and sweet peas in pots and put them in a cold frame.

Lovely colour, Wonky. Reminds me of my Malvern Hills rose.

My iris reticulata was just coming out when we left and when we got home 12 days later it was all over, apart from spiky leaves.
