Morning peeps - what a busy lot you were yesterday.  Those of you who weren't grafting (or rearranging) in the garden were in the kitchen instead.

Had a great evening out with friends - lots of laughs, and world now put to rights

Plants arrived from Hardy's - aster monch and salvia ostfriesland .... Must go find the good guys thread.  Need a planting spree at the weekend.

Morning all

Lizzie's going to be busy today with all that lot to pot up  I've now got my bulbs - will try and get the daffs and alliums in soon, but the tulips will wait til November.  The pots they are going in are still full of annuals - that still look respectable, if not quite in their midsummer glory- so it is no hardship to wait.

off to meet old friends for dinner tonight (we met at Uni - many moons ago) - so will see you all tomorrow morning - bright and early

I didn't think it was possible

Glad you bumped Pauline - missed this the first time round. What a lovely space you have made - looks great.

Mrs B is bulletproof for me - dies back, but back with avengeance next year

What's the star in your garden right now

Love that 6ft aster.  Must go google.....unless anyone else can hazard a guess as to what it might be called

 Have now found an old crate, sempervirums on order from a Scottish nursery - should arrive Thursday - and will go on a garden hunt for broken terracotta pots this weekend - I'm sure there are some out there somewhere

Will show you when I am done .....its not often I get creative

Hope littlies are over the worst soon Yvie

Woody - i used to get taken to Mudeford beach as a treat when I was a little'un (We only lived a mile from the sea, but all our local beaches were stony)

excited at the thought that my acidanthera's might also have magiced flowers when I wasn't looking - will check at the weekend (probably the next time i will see the garden in the light). Desperate measures called for this evening - its been so dry i had to water my pots with a headtorch on

Good to see you Matty - hope all is good with you and yours
