Pink sky here this morning



a small compensation for the fact that I have to put the lights on when I get up now


How about some structures to give some height in the shady border Dove - a pair of obelisks that you can grow things through maybe?


Glad you are finally back online Lizzie, and welcome back to Solent

Morning all - not liking these dark mornings one little bit


Calliope is an aster Fairy - black stems, purple flowers and very tall - always looking for colour and height for the back of my borders.


Love the chairback trellis Wonky - inspired 


Have a great day all - hope Liri's throat and cough clears up soon.

Good to have you back Lesley - glad things went well.


Hope Dr has some answers for Pat


Working in London today, so catching up with you all from a train πŸš‚


Loved my weekend of garden visits in Herefordshire - what a beautiful part of the country πŸ˜€  Hampton Court Castle was stunning and the Picton gardens were a riot of colour.  Couldn't resist temptation in their nursery and came home with four beauties - including Calliope, which has been on my wish list for years and therefore cannot be classed as an impulse buyπŸ˜‰


Gonna be hard to drag my mind away from gardens and into work mode this morning 😳 - one of the drawbacks of a great weekend.

In bed with a cuppa - just heard a flock of geese fly over - beating their wings and honking loudly ......presumably getting ready to fly away soon.


looking forward to the Picton Garden and Hampton Court today - sun's shining, fluffy clouds .......perfect


Sounds like you are very nearly there Ob ......good luck with the move. Looking forward to following the adventures in your new garden

Lovely day garden visiting  Stockton Bury was my favourite - surprises round every corner, but still felt like a cohesive whole.  Now time for a quick snooze (lots of driving) and then some drinks and dinner.  Luckily the weather held here all day - we must be far enough south to miss the grotty bits.  Can see Welsh hills on the horizon ......feels like a long way from home
