Annabelles my favourite hydrangea, and Orion gets top spot for geraniums.  My kiwi fullmonty is a lovely hosta, and jaqueline postil beats all the other daphnes in my book.  And my constance spry rose is pretty special too

Morning all - even later with my first cuppa than gardeners boy.  But thats what weekends are for.  Chuckling at the mental picture of Beau in her dressing gown - mine is pink and fluffy and is often seen on early morning garden forays ...the neighbours are now used to it

Got the outlaws popping in at some unspecifed time  this pm - will garden til they arrive and then come in and make myself respectable.

Hosta - OH did the same with our old Landrover a couple of years ago.  I had to go and sweet talk a local farmer, with a VERY big wheeled tractor, to rescue It

Anyone done any gardening today?

Not a lot of planning goes on here - mostly finding things to fill gaps.  I am rubbish at visualising what something will look like til its grown.  OHs much better at it.  But, over the years I am beginning to get it looking how I want it ....just need to be brave at moving my mistakes

Thanks Runnybeak - managed it now

Had a great afternoon in the garden cleaning out old leaves from someof the flower beds.  So much is beginning to shoot up.  Gave my roses a bit of a prune too, and will feed them all tomorrow.  Really feels like spring now ......lovely
