Had a lovely lunch with theCanadian cousins, and then sat with coffees watching the boats pootle around the Beaulieu river ...very relaxing.


Sweetpeas start the hardening off process today - aimimg to get them in the ground next weekend. been for my early morning greenhouse inspection - what a lovely morning it is out there.


Enjoy your Mondays folks ๐ŸŽ‰โ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰

Oooo - so much to see, and all gorgeous.  That honeysuckle is stunning, love the white clematis, that saxifrage is now on my wish list, and that aquilegia is making me wish even more that the gall mite hadn't discovered my garden

Love that raspberry ripple - very jealous


Great day here.  Did lots of weeding that I hadn't intended to ....jumped in the flowerbed to pull out one, and was still there a couple of hours later.  But if I hadn't been there I wouldn't have spotted the flower bud on my tree peony, which has been there for about 5 years, steadfastly refusing to perform


Then potted on 48 rudbeckias (.....who needs 48 rudbeckias I hear you cry), and the annuals which willbe ready for my pots in a few weeks time.  If I thought the greenhouse was full before, then it is positively groaning now.


Great clematis Panda
