HELLO FORKERS!

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

Lovely news about little one Liri - that must be such a relief.

Just in .... OH had bangers and mash waiting - yum.

enjoyed catching up but now can't remember it all - so hope all aches and pains are recovering, packing is being done and GC purchases are being admired.  I have thalictrum Hewits double - planted last year and flowering for the first time this year - lovely. Intense violet

Woody, Ggirl - we are collecting a posse for a Wisley visit - can either of you Hampshire Hogs make it ? (Its ok to call you that as I am one too)

Woking station is dead easy to get to from Waterloo - about 30 minutes journey, and the trains go about every 10 mins. Happy to pick you both up from there (and drop you back to Woking at the end of the day too). Surrey is very friendly
