Thanks Liri - hope you and Ob have a great time too

Just watched today's three Chelsea programmes back to back .....gotta love Cleve West haven't you.  The guy is a genius.  And such a lovely man too.  You can keep the twirly bay trees ...know where I will be heading first

I do what you first thought of - put plastic pots in the top and plant into them.  They need a daily watering in the summer, but then so do all my annual displays.  Its also easy to ring the changes then.  Lobelia and calibriocha work really well for trailing

πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŒΊπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ -hooray Yvie - the first flower is something to celebrate, it means it is settling in and growing up.  Plus its a lovely flower - nice and long and very pretty colour - so you know you have lots to look forward to.  Just imagine if, after all that time, it hadturned out to be white or pink (although I love the white and pink ones tooπŸ€”)

Enjoy your Mondays folks πŸŽ‰β˜€οΈπŸŽ‰

Oooo - so much to see, and all gorgeous.  That honeysuckle is stunning, love the white clematis, that saxifrage is now on my wish list, and that aquilegia is making me wish even more that the gall mite hadn't discovered my garden
