Hello Forkers - May Edition

Posted: 28/05/2017 at 20:18

Hidden Gardens was great - bit soggy at times, but we just carried on my Grandma used to point out in rainstorms .."you won't melt"

Came home and spent an hour uploading about 10 photos on here   The picture threads are becoming almost impossible for me to use, which is a shame as they were the ones I used to enjoy the most   Might have to save my pennies for a new iPad (Nora's only suggested solution)

Then had a potting on session in the GH.  Managed to convince myself that not all my babies needed to be grown on ......maybe 40 rudbeckias is enough for one garden   So hard to abandon them though

Oh, look, the Emporer's got no clothes on 

I conceive a depressingly barren space, I execute it according to my plan, I win gold and best in show ......nonsense

Always love CB gardens, and this year was no exception   The man himself is the one in the purple shirt in the second shot

Loved the planting in the breaking ground one - but two thirds of it was just paving .....not so good
