Littlest chicklet was sent home from work earlier - think she has tonsilitus again. Another trip to the doctors tomorrow I think.
before that I got 1 whole plant in the ground - I think my current ratio is 9 parts weeding to 1 part planting .....never seems to work like that with Monty. Still, it was a good plant - hydrangea limelight- so I am pleased with my efforts.
Now time to curl up with my book again - will have devoured it before bedtime this evening
Weeding and planting for me too today Lizzie - I'm hoping yesterdays downpours have loosened things up for me
Sorry you've got the sniffles Dove 🤒🤒🤒
Bulb order in - a purple and white tulip combo for my pots, and 120 Feb Gold daffs for the meadow .....now only have to wait for the postie to deliver.
Just had a lord lambourne apple, straight from the tree, for my lunch . Plenty more where that came from this year🍏🍎🍏🍎🍏
FiL visiting us today, and heavy showers forecast .......but tomorrow will be a gardening day ......the first for many weeks. Have accumulated a fair few plants that need to be got into the ground - sounds simple, but for the weeding that will need to happen to create space for them
But first another cuppa and a few more chapters of Monty's new book - which is a great read even if you are not a particularly doggy person
So so sorry Lizzie - what a sad day
Made it to the weekend .....well nearly.
You've all reminded me that I'd better get on and order some bulbs. Mostly tulips, which I won't plant til November anyway, but don't want them to have run out
Have a great Friday
Soz - technical hitch, pics on different device
ooooo Wonky .....how exciting what a wonderful turn of events. Can't wait to hear how you get on
Wonderful space Ob - you are going to have such fun with that. As others have said, we need a picture diary. Good luck with the final stages of the move. Hope you cam find some wiffy somewhere to pop inoccasionally whlist yours is being fixed.
Lesley - didn't take many pics ofmy garden weekend - decided to keep them in my head. However the 2 below are of an igloo made of old wine bottles .....genius
Pink sky here this morning
a small compensation for the fact that I have to put the lights on when I get up now
How about some structures to give some height in the shady border Dove - a pair of obelisks that you can grow things through maybe?
Glad you are finally back online Lizzie, and welcome back to Solent
Morning all - not liking these dark mornings one little bit
Calliope is an aster Fairy - black stems, purple flowers and very tall - always looking for colour and height for the back of my borders.
Love the chairback trellis Wonky - inspired
Have a great day all - hope Liri's throat and cough clears up soon.
