I shall be pricking out and pricking out and potting on today too (although sowing cleomes is on my list -I'm a bit behind you Fidget) .....tomatoes, cosmos, cucumbers, rudbeckias, echinaceas, cephalaria and several sorts of snapdragon .....its all very exciting
But first, littlest Chicklet needs a lift to work ....the good people of Farnham are waiting for their posh coffee
Wonderfully wintry Fairy. Took me a while to spot the spawn .....thought you had brought a fully formed frog home in your flask
Beautiful blues Victoria. And loving waterbutt way
The overall look of my borders is still pretty dormant ....but if you get up close there are some gems
One lone tulip ......hope he hangs around for long enough for the rest of the pot to catch up
Been to Hyde Hall in October and the autumn colours were stunning. They have lots of rose beds, so I would imagine June would be good .....put a reminder on Bernard
Nice to have you back Lesley - hope you are now fighting fit
Just in from the garden. Did a bit of weeding and then sorted out ALL my plastic plant pots ......graded into sizes and colours .....you have no idea how satisfying that job was. Seems we will be getting warmer after the frost tonight, so I am now ready to prick out seedlings tomorrow. I am too stingy to write a label for every pot, so i try to plant things in matching pots so I can tell the difference ...ie black square, round orange, black with writing on the side ..... Its quite a system. Feel like the gardeing year is really motoring now
And Mr C is back driving again ....so we are returning to normal once more.
So pleased Lyn ....((hugs)) for you and your Dad. Stay strong.
Morning Dove, Morning Yvie
Keep meaning to ask .....which bit of the Solent are you looking out on SolentWind ? I am originally a SolentGirl (grew up in Hythe, of the ferry fame).
Best get a wriggle on ....
Wow Wonky. Marathon post you are obviously getting a post-flu adrenalin rush. Hope Hubby is on the mend very soon too - sounds like you have both been pretty poorly.
Sorry your evening out wasn't all you had hoped for Pat.
Hope Panda has wakes up with a pain-free mouth ......ouch. And good luck with the house and the breach baby for Yvies's second born (been there - C section not too bad with a first baby, just a pain not being able to drive for an age afterwards).
Weekend nearly here. Just discovered GW has been cancelled by the ladies football. Thought it was because of the Masters, which at least has some azaleas to look at. Someone needs to get their priorites sorted
((hugs)) for poorly Panda and her toothipegs (or ex-toothipegs) - sounds painful. Hope today gets it sorted out properly.
And hope Hosta enjoyed the ballet. Green here too.
Slightly later start today as have to drop littlest chicklet off for a holiday revision session later .....but somehow still seem to be in a rush.
Have a great hols DD - hope you find lots of whiffy
Morning all. Welcome to Blighty Lizzie - love the sound of your new front garden .....what have you planted? And have a good trip too DD - seems that all our French Forkers are returning to the motherland at the same time
