Morning all

Dove - you could have a look in the GC for a little gizmo/watering spike that attaches to an old lemonade bottle, and releases water gradually over a week or 2 - and you could use that either in the pot or in the ground.  I got some last year as I was worried about leaving my new crabapples for 2 weeks in July. Not expensive.

sitting in bed with the windows open listening to the birds ........bliss

Great news that you are going back to work Hosta .....well the work bit isn't great news, but as a milestone in recovery it is bl&&dy marvellous

Today's task is to weed my sweetpea bed and get the babies planted out, plus tidy up some other bits and pieces.  Feels like we are hurtling headlong into summer now .....although perhaps someone ought to tell that weatherman

Morning allπŸŒ„πŸŒ„πŸŒ„

So glad you enjoyed your Chelsea visits Liri and Obelixx - its always one of my favourite days out of the year. I only shared the two pics Liri - but if you start a new thread I have more to add.

Slightly later start for me today - littlest Chicklet had her last exam yesterday ( nice to see her smile again) so no rushing for trains for a couple of weeks.

Looking forward to a few days off - lots of gardening planned πŸŒ±πŸƒπŸŒΈπŸŒΏπŸŒ·πŸŒΎπŸŒ»
