HELLO FORKERS!

What a pretty chanomeles Matty.  How about a white geranium for underplanting?

had another afternoon of mulching - have to say the bits I have done are looking very good for it - hope things grow good and strong as a result.  Maybe one more day to get the top border done, then time to start the bottom one

Daffs are looking pretty good, and lots of scillas and chinodoxa now starting to flower ....plus last years forced hyacinths that I put in the garden once they had finished indoors.  They are a much darker blue outside than they were indoors

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

So sorry Lyn.  You did your very best for her, and were there for her all the time....that will have meant a lot to her.  And now she is at peace.

Gently does it Matty  Nice to be out in the fresh air though

no gardening here today - littlest chicklet wanted a trip to Guildford.  Managed to incorporate cake

OH has barrowed round a big heap of manure ready for me to do some mulching tomorrow, when the day is my own.  Big job, but hoping it will save me a few weeding sessions later on.

hoping to find Kew on the iPlayer later on

Morning DD, Morning Lesley

Overcast here, so won't "see" the eclipse, but guess we will notice it go dark.  I remember the last one - very strange feeling.  All the birds stopped singing and Chicklet (who was 2) went inside to fetch her teddy and a bedtime book.  I can see why folks of old found them scary.

wonderful before and after pics yesterday - what a difference you have both made

Just monopolised the tv for 2 hours and caught up with Poldark.  very good, although I am missing Biggins

Have met Chris Beardshaw, and he was lovely.....and certainly not 5'2

managed to acquire another 2 hardy geraniums at lunchtime today - white ones this time.  Someone once said a garden could never have too many hardy G's ......I am rising to that challenge.

Glad to see OL is back

Have a great Galway trip Liri

Night all

Morning Lesley  Hopefully you are now snoozing away whilst MrK is doing the honours with your 4 legged friend

Had some very vivid dreams ...feel a bit wiped out now.  Hopefully a cuppa will help.

Some of my Sunday sown seeds are up already ..zinnias and love-lies-bleeding. First time for both with me. 48 hr germination can't be bad

 

Rose suggestions please
