Get better soon Wonky.
Once Katie was out of the way we had a very nice day - been out there pruning hydrangeas and weeding. Will sleep well tonight
lovely to see some of the things I planted last year coming back strongly. I like weeding at this time of year, you discover so much going on when you are so close to the ground
....and cecile brunner is good too
Pauls himalayan musk, new dawn, and shropshire lad are good for me ......as opposed to iceberg, st swithuns and constance spry, which normally get a bit of blackspot
The other difference between seed grown and bareroot lupins is that you will probably know what colour your bareroot ones will be, whereas seed grown will be a nice (hopefully) surprise
Stay safe Dove - hope OH has not had to go to work
You could try prunings from prickly shrubs -- we have had success with holly branches and rose prunings
We are on the "three counties" border Lily - Surrey, Hampshire, Sussex, so quite close to you. Glad you also came through without mishap. Just been hearing that Wisley is closed til midday whilst they do inspections
Morning all. Well that was a wild night. Our usually solid house was creaking away very alarmingly - at one point I honestly thought we were going to lose bits of the roof. We live in a narrow valley, and Mr C assures me it sounded worse because the wind was just the right direction to be tunnelled down it. However, no damage done beyond a sleepless night, so counting our blessings. Even still got power
Goodnes Katie making her presence felt here. Feel like Dorothy in Kansas .....
Katie seems to have arrived ....funny, don't recall inviting her
About to catch up with the Springwatch special now - recorded it from Friday - woop woop
