Not my bellis daisies, they were Busy Lizzies - it just reminded me of your thread

Glad you had a good day MrsG - anniversaries are hard.  Nice that you all managed to get together.

Lovely pic Jack - but not an expert so can't tell you what it is.  Saw a red admiral here yesterday - never noticed one in this garden before so i was v excited.  Lots of peacocks and tortoiseshells And yellow ones too.

GH now washed and sparkly - plus half the "stuff" moved back in.  How does a GH get filled with so much "stuff" ???

Another lovely weekend, feeling a bit sunburnt.  Plus i have been spoiled by the Chicklets  Lots of flowers around here now - i love simple daffs for the garden, but think the double fancies look great in a vase

Hope the birthday boy has a great day, with lots of cake and candles

Advice for a small garden on a small budget!

Posted: 30/03/2014 at 11:05

My tip is to buy the clematis as small plants (the magazines/newspapers often have "free" offers - or the GCs do them 4 for £10 sometimes).  They get established much quicker than the expensive, bigger ones.  And plant them about 4 inches deeper than they were in their pot. Have fun - it looks like an exciting project

Morning all - won't it be lovely that it will be light til nearly 8 this evening .... Bliss

Today i need to wash the reconstructed GH and organise everything inside so it is just like it was, but backwards, if you see what i mean (in its new home it makes sense for everything to be swapped, like a mirror image).  

Had a dream about my Mum last night - funny how the old subconcious works.  She was on good form .
