Morning peeps

Hope you got back to sleep Dove. Hosta - did any of your namesake come home with your friends/clients?  There were certainly plenty to choose from, although lots of the little leaf varieties, which I am not so keen on.

Very warm last night - I believe thunder is on the way⛈🌩⚡️

Liri - 2 purchases at HC - now stuffed with my own sweetpeas

Not keen on buying plants at shows then stressing them by carting them around.  But notes were taken, and online purchases made last night ....double blue geranium, sanguisorba squirrels tails and agapanthus twister are on their way.

Last few days DD - you must be getting very excited/terrified . We're all urging you on 

Wonderful day out at Hampton Court yesterday - plant marquee was the highlight again - so many "new to me" plants gone on my wish list . Perfect weather too.  Bit of star spotting - Carol and Rachel strutting their stuff......whats not to like 

Back to the office today ......ho, hum

Beautiful edges Lizzie - the 1973 shears are obviously still in fine fettle. Your beds are looking lovely - hope your open day is a roaring success

I'm so very sorry Joyce.  You have cared for him so selflessly.  He will have known that he was loved ......and that is a very important thing.

Looking cold Pat ....but preferable to the baking heat you get in summer.

Work this morning, but day off tomorrow for Hampton Court.....forecast still looking dry.  

Just been and picked myself a bowl of blueberries to go with my breakfast Yum

Joyce - hope your daughter arrives back soon - you'll find strength in each other.

Love that Lily Fairy, and your daylily B3.  Great pictures on here

PapiJo - the pink spiky thing is a veronica - can't remember its name but its something space rocket-y. Takes me all my time to get pictures loaded on here - daren't add labels for fear of losing the lot and having to start again
