Morning peeps Working from home today, so get to wander round the garden in my teabreaks/ thinking time. Looking sunny out there, although the temperatures plunged here yesterday afternoon. Not quite time to hide away the winter woollies just yet.
Good advice Dove - i'll make a note to cut him down to size in the winter
And a very pretty one too Mostly they are red flowered.....you see lots of them around, but not many whites
Morning all Wouldn't switch to the summer duvet yet Dove - think the heatwave might be about to subside.
A friend from work is just having his garden "done" and I have been helping him with plant selections (mostly "ooooo, lovely, you've got to have one of those"). Yesterday he turned up with 2x daniel deronda and 2x elsa spath clematis for me (he snuck them in to his nursery wholesale order as extras). Whopping plants I was so excited . Other colleagues looked on a bit bemused. Now, to find ppp's for them ......
Thats interesting David ....most of mine are russell type grown from seed, but I have a few of the named varieties too....will keep an eye out for the difference.
Morning Dove,and those to come
Quick cuppa, then need to water the seedlings in the GH before I set off for the day. Its nice to squeeze a bit of "gardening" in before work
Missed you there DD - love a photographic diary - its amazing to look at how things change without you really noticing. Although in this case, the changes are pretty dramatic. You'll need to make that photo an April tradition .....make sure you keep the same hat for that element of continuity
Welcome home MrsG We need pics of the amelanchier If i remember rightly we shared the rather stressful process of siting it perfectly
Getting a bit excited that the weather is forecast to stay fine til Saturday. I am off to a Garden Festival in Malmesbury .... A couple of "lectures" booked, some stalls to browse round, and a tour of the Abbey House Gardens booked......can't wait
Lovely collection of tulips and tins Isn't spring lovely
