Morning Snoodle, Evening Pat

first day at a new school/college for littlest chicklet this morning.  Keeping fingers crossed she settles in quickly.  New routine, involving trains to get there, so my first task is to deposit her at a station - then its over to her

after that, a trip to Wisley is planned (got a day off).  Yesterday's water gardens were lovely - will post pics on appropriate thread later.  A few new buddlejas followed us home ......including this beauty


It's my birthday

Morning all, and a big welcome to Gertie and Gummer

I know Beauly,Fairy (but only because it is one end of a new, and highly fought over, high voltage, electricity transmission line ....I really should get out more).  Hope squirrel nutkin appears for you.

We are taking my uncle to the Leckford water gardens today - only open on the first Sunday of the month, so we have timed it perfectly.  Will take some pics.  Have been before and it is lovely - part of the John Lewis estate, near Stockbridge.  Nice cafe and plant centre too

Hope everyone else has a sunny Sunday .....its glorious here  (at last)

Hate jelly too plus always felt sorry for the poor blancmange bunny when he was decapitated sensitive soul, moi.

Glad you have lovely birthdays now RB

Gorgeous shed and new beds Beau - some lovely plants in there.  Is the wavy pink one a scabious?  Keep meaning to tell you, your sedums are going from strength to strength - have taken cuttings and now have quite a big patch of them
