New garden blank slate: It is taking form.

Looking Great   Looks like lots of hard work.  Keep the photos coming as it all starts to mature.  They're great to look back on n in a few years too - you'll forget how it used to look when you first started.

Glad you had a good time Liri

Positive thoughts for DD - you will get there in the end, I have a good feeling about ChdeG

Just put GH to bed - forecast warmer tonight, so no need for fleece ❄️❄️❄️ Everything is growing a tiny bit every day All very exciting

Hope you managed more than a couple of hours Hosta.  I reckon tomatoes sown now would soon catch up .

Will keep an eye out for you Pdoc - Aldershot is very close to us   Not many barracks left to stay in 

Love what you are doing to the space in the park Liri .  We get scalpings delivered (we, and the neighbours, keep the unmade track we live on pothole free with them).  They normally get delivered in the middle of the night, whilst the roadworks are going on.  We pay a nominal sum, but for a good cause they should waive that.

No frost again   Loving this spring weather, but we really could do with some good rain.  Never happy

Morning all   We escaped the frost   My wisteria flower buds survive another day (stressful business this gardening lark ).

Got away from work early-ish yesterday so we had time for a quick 6 mile trot round some bluebell woods on the South Downs.  Absolutely beautiful.  Never realised just how strong their scent was, or just how blue the native ones could be.  By the end of it I'd forgotten I'd even been back to work 

But now I've remembered 

Feeling sooooo excited for LilyP - enjoy

Lovely autumn colours against the deep blue sky Pat. And beautiful bluebells Scroggin

The HRH cloud made me go a bit teary too - but what a lovely, comforting thing to see

Morning Pat

Although I hate it when the alarm goes off, I do enjoy the quiet me-time first thing in the morning.  Just going for a quick potter in the GH and then better get a wiggle on

Looking forward to seeing the autumn colours Oz-style

Morning all 

Alarm was a bit of a shock to the system this morning   Looks chilly out there, but no white tinge.  Although they are saying tomorrow will be colder .

The intention is to leave work pronto this evening so that we have time for a walk in the bluebell woods - lets see how that works out
