HELLO FORKERS!

Thanks for the welcomes ......feels good to be home.  Rained all day here, and soooooo cold too.  Still, don't go back to the coal face til Tues, so might get a chance to get out in the garden for a spot of pottering tomorrow.

looking forward to catching up with all the GW and Beechgroves I have missed this evening

 Hi Guys .....I'm back

Had a frantic time at work followed by a lovely time relaxing in Italy.  Lots of ruins and Michelangelo - Pompeii and Sistene Chapel were totes amazeballs (Panda) - plus sunning ourselves and relaxing under lemon trees.

Garden is looking good on our return - lovely NDN has been working hard keeping it all watered - and now the heavens have opened.  Best go empty the suitcases straight into the washing machine.....and find a jumper

Very pretty Dove .....i love pink roses, and that is such a lovely soft pink

I am about to disappear into a work shaped hole, and am unlikely to reappear again til August.  I'll be keeping up with you all in snatched spare moments (particularly when sanity needs restoring) but will have ziltch to contribute of a gardening nature.  So don't worry about me .....I'll be back.

...and keep your eye on the papers

Oh no Lizzie - what a disaster Hope tomorrow is more successful

LilyP - i keep all my agapanthus in pots.  They like having their roots constrained, plus I bring them all into the GH for the winter to stop them getting too wet and cold.

Great pics Ggirl.  Brings back memories of a lovely afternoon .....so many beautiful gardens in one little village

All my garden chores now done - decided that "puddle planting" was the way to go in the current circumstances, so hopefully they will all settle in nicely.  My cleomes were pathetic last year, so have chosen a different spot this year to see if it makes a difference.  

Time for feet up  Preparing myself for a manic few weeks
