Tea for me please Dove - milk, no sugar

Glorious here too (soz Fairy) - FiL came yesterday to watch the footie - seems he had decided to stay the night, but didn't let anyone else in on the secret - so some rather frantic last minute bed making was required ( the spare room was being used to dry a tent).

Planted out most of the cuttings i took last autumn - penstemmon, agastache and phlox, to bulk up the clumps that i already have.  And uprooted another zillion oak saplings......

Great to hear you're home.  Take it easy for a bit

Thanks Dove - she has never been one to come out of exams with a smile - always focuses on the bits she thinks she got wrong ... but today she was completely dejected .... probably because it is her best subject.  Ultimately she will be fine  - big heart, big personality - but stressful atm.  

That new roundup gel

Lizzie - it has a clicker on the bottom - but i haven't found it very good even when i can get the gel out.  Don't like using sprays, as they are indiscriminate.... So i am back to the daisy grubber

Dove - I've bought things online from Plantsman Preference - thalictrum i think- they were ace plants

Exams over for the weekend - might be enough time for Chicklet to stop crying before the next ones - today was not a good day.

Lizzie - are you ready for foals ??

Nothing wrong with Mummy warblings - in fact, nothing wrong with any warblings

Like Obelixx, I will be at Chelsea next Tuesday - but hope you all have a lovely floriferous time !

But the big question is, did you get to sit in the hangy thing

Glad you all had a lovely day
