I'm exactly the same OL - i think i have a genuine packing phobia - even have nightmares about it (they replaced the old ones about getting into an exam room and realising i had revised the wrong subject).  OH says if thats all i can dream up to have nightmares about, then i must have led a charmed life.

 

i find the only way through it is lists, lots of them, with one master list to keep track of the sub lists ......ok, so i think i have a problem

Late home again - haven't seen the garden since the weekend - but  Day off tomorrow.  Might treat myself to a glass of midweek (and thus contraband) wine

Going to meet sister and nieces (same ages as the chicklets) in London - bit of Olympic Park, bit of shopping, bit of dinner, lots of chat ..... And cake

 

MrsG - go and warm up before you catch a cold, you mad lady

 

Oops - missed Lily too.  Love your sunset - stick with it

Beautiful borders both Lizzie and Lyn - and still so much colour.  I know you both work hard - but what beautiful results.  I just love gazing at other peoples gardens - and even better when they are "Real" ones tended by real people.  Get a bit fed up of the ones in magazines that are all done by the "head gardener and his team" - where's the inspiration in that.

So thank you all Garden Gallery Peeps - for keeping it real and providing me with true inspiration

 

What's the star in your garden right now
