Lovely Yvie - rudbeckias never fail to make me smile

Think my current stars are hydrandgeas (annabelle and vanilla fraise) and a couple of lone roses (gertrude and queen elizabeth)

HELLO FORKERS!

Great plan Panda .  My only suggestion is to put the red robin next to the fence - they get quite big, and might overwhelm the rest if it was in the middle.  I spotted birthday tree too - looks lovely framed by the arch.

fidget - sounds wonderful.  We are not quite overwhelmed with produce yet, but i am pleased withmy new raspberry canes.

had a lovely day pottering - seemed to be busy in a random sort of way. Couldn't really tell you what i did, but it felt productive.  About to post some pics on other threads ....

Dark Red Sedum

Thanks both - will look it up.  Do you know if all sedums come easily from cuttings?  Ie can i get away with buying just one plant and then propagating enough for a clump myself?

Crocus sell star of billions - in fact they have it on sale at the moment.  I think it is quite a new one though.

I would like to add a dark red sedum to my borders - does anyone know a good one?

Have some pink ones that are doing well, so I think they like my conditions

Have a great meetup KEF &OL (?and someone else i've missed) .  This world is getting less virtual everyday - which considering we are flung to the four corners of this island, is no mean feat

On Sedums - i have a few pinky ones (autumn joy and an unnamed donation from my Dad, which originally came from my Grandad's Liverpool garden .... I think i will call it heirloom) .... But I would like to add a really dark red one - any recommendations anyone??

great cake .... know what you mean about wistful though .....

Morning Peeps .... Looks promising out there.  A day of garden pottering calls - bliss.  Loving that border Ggirl - you've been busy again.

Lily - wish I'd been good and raked acorns last autumn - might have been slightly less saplings if I had.

Loved West Acre - well worth a visit if you haven't been before.  Plus came home with a bootful of plants that are all thriving one year on

Great bday tree Panda - makes a striking feature. And lovely flowers LPilly - although hope they are wrong about the frost.

fabulous day at the zoo (i kid you not) - but now exhausted.  Lovely to see teenage girls SO enthusiastic about stuff (they seem to no longer care if its cool to get excited) - and so many tiny babies to see.   Baby meerkats are soooo cute.  Thats enough now, back to the gardening tomorrow
