Ooo - I'm interested Liri 


When we were growing up, we were a big tennis waching family ....can't count the number of times we all slept on the pavement to get tickets for the middle Saturday at Wimbledon ....my Mum was the ringleader. I always go to Chelsea with my sisters .....and this year we all agreed that leaving conjured up that same "wimbledon" feeling ......we want to do it all again, but know we have to wait another year.


Mum would have loved it too

All looking wonderful on here


Whats rose no.2 Lizzie ? - lovely colour


Here's our standard wisteria - Mr C started it from a whip (no tittering at the back please) as a project about 18 years ago (chicklet had just arrived and he needed a hobby that didn't take him too far from the house).  It lived in a pot for a decade and then was liberated into the soil, and now just gets better and better

Change of plan ....its quite warm out here, so have decided today is a day for sitting in the garden rather than toiling in it. Rather pleased with my view:



Mr Cs constructing, so every now and then I am required to hold something or check a slide rule, but apart from that its going to be a lazy day

Morning all


Dove - you could have a look in the GC for a little gizmo/watering spike that attaches to an old lemonade bottle, and releases water gradually over a week or 2 - and you could use that either in the pot or in the ground.  I got some last year as I was worried about leaving my new crabapples for 2 weeks in July. Not expensive.


sitting in bed with the windows open listening to the birds ........bliss


Great news that you are going back to work Hosta .....well the work bit isn't great news, but as a milestone in recovery it is bl&&dy marvellous


Today's task is to weed my sweetpea bed and get the babies planted out, plus tidy up some other bits and pieces.  Feels like we are hurtling headlong into summer now .....although perhaps someone ought to tell that weatherman
