Great pics Ggirl.  Brings back memories of a lovely afternoon many beautiful gardens in one little village

All my garden chores now done - decided that "puddle planting" was the way to go in the current circumstances, so hopefully they will all settle in nicely.  My cleomes were pathetic last year, so have chosen a different spot this year to see if it makes a difference.  

Time for feet up  Preparing myself for a manic few weeks

beefstake tomatoes

I've grown Marmande in the past, but not doing so this year - you get a handful of really big toms, rather than loads of little ones ......loads of little ones suits us better

Morning all  Very cloudy and overcast, but no rain ........we need some really good showers sent this way please Verd and Lily.

today is the final planting day of the season for me - cleomes to find spaces for  Also need to move on my seed grown lupins, campanulas and kefidget delphiniums to bigger pots, so they can beef themselves up ready for the garden next year.  Then a really good tidy up is needed

The reason I'm not weeding

My borders are being mulched nicely with sheeps sorrel at the moment  I knew I was doing it deliberately, but just couldn't articulate why
