But whatever you do don't plant it in your garden .... They are a menace in mine

Got home safe and sound, although no seat on the train home, plus lots of sherbert laden souls, which vindicated my decision that she should not be travelling home alone.

Rain here at the moment, but they are predicting showers, so hoping I can get out in the non-rainy gaps and put some more plants in the ground.  Dad coming later - football to be watched- so will not be round much.

Cherry tree would be a lovely addition to front garden..... And i'm sure these bulbs will put on a fantastic display, whatever they are ......

Chicklet safely retrieved - hoarse and temporarily deaf. The joys of yoof. On our way home now. Might need a lie in in the morning.

I thought the perennial packing was cute too

I use propagator lids to protect my seedlings when frost is forecast - but you could do the job with fleece.  I just find the lids quite quick and handy, and don't risk crushing the babies

She's at Mcbusted - and i am now happily ensconced in Starbucks at the o2 - with carrot cake - can't be bad !  She should be out about 11ish and then we start the battle to get home

Sounds like you had a great time OL - love the lakes, but rarely get up there any more.  Used to have an Aunt who lived inBarrow, who we stayed with alot.  How were your 48 perennials when they arrived ?  Mine are growing away well - especially the geums

Hey guess what - I'm on a train again !  On my way to meet Chicklet, who is at a concert in London, and her overprotective mother won't let her travel home from London, at midnight, on her own. I am in the doghouse, but don't care.  Am armed with gardening mags, coffee, and you lot to keep me company.


Great planter Panda - love all the shades of dark red and mauve - very classy

I hate wind more than anything - been swirling round here today too.  Looks like you've done a good rescue job
