OK Potty - you did ask!

Mentioned on another thread that I found some photos of the garden last year, and was shocked how much it has now filled out without me really noticing - here is what i mean:

KEF - enjoy - no heatwaves forecast here, so all will be fine.   (any room in your suitcase for a stowaway?  - I could do with another week on a lounger ...

I grow them (deer leave them alone - Lizzie take note !).  I have amethyst dream and amethyst in the snow.  Both lovely, and both give me two lots of flowers.  I'm sure with your skills, and your climate, you could get them to give you THREE !!

Don't know what happened there - and it was before the wine was even poured!!

Pentillie - what difficult times - positive thinking is so important, but much easier said than done.  I pass Heatherwood Hospital each day on my journey to and from work.  Will say a little prayer each time I pass.

Lovely larkspur - my favourite blue !!

TT and Potty - don't even want to start to think what they might have done with that trumpet !  (definitely before my time).

Bev - I just sent you a PM.

Work finished .... wine starting ...

Good work Garden Girl - mind your fingers, that stuff is razor sharp !

Hope all goes well with impending grandchild TT - exciting, but worrying all at the same time.  Will be keeping fingers crossed (well, obviously not whilst typing, as that would result in gobbledegook).

Got some work to do (the world's gone mad), but got two computers side by side, so might pop in here again later.

Morning - another grey start here - although yesterday was gorgeous once it got going.

Yesterday stumbled on some photos of the garden last year - looked very sparse compared to this year - didn't realise how far we had come !  Must take more photos as we go.  This site has made be better at remembering to do that!
