Me too Beau fact I've started making notes of planting places for the autumn, and crocus colours that I like ......did I ever mention how much I love this Forum 

BTW Beau, my tulip pots this year are full of purple stripey ones inspired by your pics last year (or might even have been the year before) - Rem's Favourite mixed with a dark purple and a white .....will post photos when they do their thing.  Bet you never knew just how inspirational you are

Good to see you back Lily - really hope I wasn't one of those causing you grief .....I normally only have time for one post a day, and often don't mention anyone else (self centred ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฎ).....but that doesn't mean I don't read a lot more than I post.  Have missed hearing tales of little poppet.

.......and whoever suggested a herbaceous borders at Kew visit ......fantastic idea, count me in

Bemused here too Lizzie

Can I take a hammock to the island please ?  And a pile of books ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š 10 minutes wifi a day for chats with Chicklets.....and maybe it can have a mountain in the middle as well as a waterfall so Fairy can go climbing, and I can have a ramble in the foothills.  

....I'm on my way to the airport now โœˆ๏ธโœˆ๏ธโœˆ๏ธ

If it helps with identification, it was particularly bad yesterday evening - took me 4 attempts to post something without losing the lot - the error message goes something like "there was a problem with this page so it was reloaded"

Hope LilyP got some more sleep - maybe subconciously you think littl'un is still around.

Great sign Pat, and even greater sky โ˜€๏ธโ›…๏ธโ˜๏ธ

Raised beds sound good, plus plenty of added oraganic matter.  We have a veg bed where a row of the dreaded leylandii once stood.  We had the stumps ground out (by a man with a stump grinder) and fished out loads of roots, but have been growing things successfully ......just keep piling on the muck !
