Missed you there DD - love a photographic diary - its amazing to look at how things change without you really noticing. Although in this case, the changes are pretty dramatic. You'll need to make that photo an April tradition .....make sure you keep the same hat for that element of continuity

Welcome home MrsG We need pics of the amelanchier If i remember rightly we shared the rather stressful process of siting it perfectly

Getting a bit excited that the weather is forecast to stay fine til Saturday.  I am off to a Garden Festival in Malmesbury .... A couple of "lectures" booked, some stalls to browse round, and a tour of the Abbey House Gardens booked......can't wait

Shabby Chic Anyone?

Matty - i never used to like lupins, but have been converted by the single colour ones (as opposed to the bicolours)

like lots of hanging baskets round the eaves of a country pub, but not keen elsewhere

My Rozanne is just appearing - but I find it quite low growing. A good blue, but with a bit more height, is Orion.
