Have a wonderful Finnish holiday Liri - sounds like quite the experience.  Need pics of the cabin and the lake when you return

Stunning lunchtime views Fairy - you can sense the peace just from the photo.

French heatwave sounds a bit alarming for someone about to go away - thank heavens for a housesitter.  Popped round to our neighbours yesterday to beg assistance when we go away - otherwise I spend more time on holiday checking the forecast for home than I do my new surroundings.  Is there a word for obsession with weather forecasts?  If so, I think I've got it

Morning All

Rain here, but forecast to clear by midday.  Which should give me plenty of time to plant up my summer pots. Seems a bit incongruous, given i am still in jumpers, jeans and boots, but it is rumoured that summer could arrive anyday now.   Which reminds me ....must paint my toenails

does anyone grow love lies bleeding ?  Never tried it before, and have healthy looking seedlings, but they are getting a bit top heavy.  Can I bury deeply when I pot on?

Wonderful wheels Winter

OH bought cannas and bananas last year - they seem to have survived the winter in our unheated GH.  But only just producing leaves yet ....nowhere near flowers.  Seems like a bit of a faff keep bringing them in and out - but they are his babies, so he gets to look after them

Got my penstemon planted out.  Went to do my gaura and found several of last years have survived after will have a forest this year.
