About to surface - FiL coming for lunch - best find the hoover.

beautiful day, but nothing urgent to do in the garden. Might take my bike for a spin this afternoon

We have just removed a L- hedge - and had the stumps ground out.  Our next step will be to dig in as much horse manure as we can this autumn and next spring - hope that will do the trick. The plan is to grow veg there eventually.

I wish i could use the site gremlins as an excuse for my tardiness, but alas i was actually still sleeping.  Contemplating the rain as i type - hoping the forecast is right and it clears soon. Would like to plant my new sidalcias.

FG - your shed move has created you loads of space - what are you planning for the gap?

Stacey - loved your rudbeckias too - they are brilliant plants for just going on and on and on.  I had one self seed and come up in the middle of my box hedge, so rather than dig it up i have been cutting the flowers for the house - they last more than 3 weeks in a vase

 Had to go out in the rain to take that picture - good job I was wearing a hoodie!!

My chillis get munched on by slugs - but your holes look a bit neat for them.
