Morning Lesley, Morning Dove Will the GC get a little look in after the food heroes have been awarded Dove
Thanks for the lovely comments about my iris - she certainly has pulled out all the stops this year. And also for the exam wishes - yesterdays went well, i think. Big one this pm for Chicklet, if anyone has any spare fingers to cross at about 2pm
Its that time of year when the morning amble round the garden reveals a new bud open every day ......loving it
Looking great Pdoc and Joybell. Love the red rose Pdoc
Joy, the delphinium is a gorgeous shade of pink - is that one from seed? if so, what a lovely surprise
Have a lovely week Dove - looks like it will be a sunny one
Welcome Kitty My littlest Chicklet has the dreaded Maths exam this morning too ....wonder whether it is too late to mention pizzas (Better not risk it). Chicklet has her first A level this morning too....its gonna be a busy week. But this is the final push....and soon they will be able to enjoy the summer
In the meantime, the garden is blooming ....very pleased with my Olympus iris....which I will share with you as an exuberant start to the week
Big Bulldog fans here too. OH destroys garden forks as a hobby, but the bulldog one has survived
Morning all - glorious here too, and finally that wind has died down. Off to meet up with sisters at my Dads - think the aim was to help him get rid of some of the junk that is slowly creeping over his living space, but don't fancy our chances much.
Will take him some tomato plants, so maybe I will have a go at a similar exercise in his GH.
Abbey House gardens were wonderful yesterday ....here's a quick taster
Thanks Nut Off to google now to see what they will look like when they open
Went garden visiting today, and saw several clumps of something about to flower, with very distinctive flower buds. Does anyone know what they are? Flowers will be held on long stems about 3foot high
Have a good time garden visiting Panda I am doing the same today. 4 of us are making a return trip to the Abbey House garden in Wiltshire. We went as part of the Garden Festival a few weeks ago, and promised to return for the roses.....hope they didn't get blown away last Tuesday. Just checked out the ngs website and there are a couple that look good in the area, so might add those in to the trip.
Lesley - sounds like you and OH have been grafting hard. Hope there are some before and after pics in progress. Looking forward to seeing the transformation
I love it too - such a pretty blue.
Maybe not ideal ifyou want a bowling green lawn (don't see many of them around here) - but if you want it gone I should imagine any broad leaf lawn weed killer would sort it out?
