Sounds like a good haul Liri 

Love that pot Yvie

I have non flowering acidanthera too - they were planted last year, so have survived a winter, but lots of leaves, no flowers.  Maybe next year

I'm popping in the GC today and will have my eyes open for some more ...Jennifer is a lovely pale pink.  Unlike Fairy, i LOVE all the pinks

DD - weeding and tackling raspberries whilst keeping your calf elevated?? - sounds like a gym/yoga/contortionist club, not a running one

Phew - you've exhausted me just reading all your plans

I am sitting in bed with a cuppa - don't feel guilty as I'm an early bird all week

Off to get my hair snipped in a minute, then might pop in the GC on he way home.  Got a lovely pale pink hydrangea at Wisley last week, and think it will change colour if i put it in the ground here, so am going to plant it in a pot.  The one i have in mind is one of the curvy ones, so need to get another plastic one to go inside or I will never get it out again.

just been for a GH snoop (in dressing gown) - still loads of tomatoes coming thick and fast.  And a Lord Lambourne apple for my lunch.

have a good wedding Panda, bench sounds great Fairy, bruises sound technicolour Dove, stumps sound intriguing Woody (pics required) .... and to everyone else, have a lovely day

Panda Good to let your hair down every once in a while Glad you had a good time - love the Oxo tower (although only for special occasions).

Welcome home Yvie - hope you had a lovely time in the sun.

Lovely to see all the salvias on GW.

Looking forward to the weekend and taking stock of my garden in the daylight

Morning all.  Just been out watering my new heathers ..... Pretty misty out there.  Chicklet is driving us this morning - to get some rush hour practice - she has her test in a couple of weeks - at 8.30am on a Monday morning

Happy 16th to OL's biggest little man

Woody - the answer is doughnuts, but you'll have to fight Verd for them

A garden is the best medicine

Glad to see you back, both Frank and Alan .....may you go from strength to strength.  Families and gardens ... Both priceless
