Saw the pictures of a flooded Malvern show yesterday afternoon, and couldn't quite believe it given our wall to wall sunshine.  It was obviously a mixed bag.  Hope everyone gets a nice day today

Guess what this is.....

I think I lost all mine this winter, and rather stupidly didn't take cuttings as back up (i had black adder and blue boa, and I loved them)

Gorgeous pictures - love those alpine trays Sheps. And I want a flood of iberis - bought one or two the other day, so at the moment only have a "raindrop"

Here's a few from my patch

Planted these a few years ago, and they keep coming back

Magnolia recovered from its frosting

and an oriental poppy getting ready to do its thing in a few weeks time

and this year's tulip pots - scuse the fat finger

Morning peeps 

Bit early for me on a weekend, but woke up with a start for some reason, and now can't drop back off.  So tea and a forum mooch happening instead.  Need to get out there before it gets too hot (now thats something I've not said for a few months) as I've got some more coldframe plants to get in the ground.  And my hammock beckons tooπŸŒžπŸ’€πŸ’€

I take mine right down so there are about 3-4 inch stems left.  Did mine last weekend, which was later than normal, but other stuff got in the way

Sorry Verdun, I must be being a bit thick.  How is it a pollination problem if there are no flowers to pollinate?
