When Doves Cry - my favourite too.  Used to play the single on constant repeat (remember.....when you used to leave the arm of the record player up).  

Thought of you Wonky, when I heard the news.

Too sad

Morning all

My weekend to-do list is getting longer and longer ...and (apart from mane taming) it all seems to involve the garden.  Its that time of year when I start to get just a teeny bit obsessed.

First buds opening on one of my ceonothus and the wisteria against the house wall.  And some of my pot tulips have started too (bit disappointed that it looks like they will have a staggered flowering, which was really not quite what I had in mind).

Enough already. There will be no living legends left. Once again, I am really really sad

I have 4 Annabelles that are all doing well - I live in Surrey, but in quite a cold frost pocket, so not everything survives - so I would say it does fine with the cold.  Winds might be a problem once the flower heads come out, because they are so big, but you could stake it quite successfully I think.  Fantastic plant

Perfect use for a dining table at this time of year Dove

Lizzie - people like seeing gardens at different times of year, so don't worry that yours is too will be a different picture for any repeat visitors you have.  And next year you can go slightly later again.  I think both you and DD are very brave.

Great colour Pat.

No frost here today - means my dressing gown and slippers have got soaked with dew on this morning's GH run

The cutting garden 2016

Posted: 20/04/2016 at 06:51

For the first time this year I have grown tulips for cutting.  They are bulbs that I had in pots last year, that I decided to try and re-use in rows in a corner of the veg garden.  Really pleased by the number of flowers I am getting - this is the first bunch

 Mr C is a bit put out - veg garden is his domain ...."which part of vegetable garden don't you understand ??!"
