Lovely again Lizzie - you are so far ahead of us in terms of flowering - you have whetted my appetite for my snowball tree.  Hope you enjoyed your trip to the motherland

Great pics everyone - keep them coming ..... I just love seeing people's plants and gardens

HELLO FORKERS!

Smiling at the thought of Wintersong hovering above her nice clean paths, like some cartoon character with special powers

Glad the sale went well Woody - plenty of pennies for the hortsoc coffers. I hear Ggirl did her bit for the cause!

Sounds like a productive day in the garden for some - very rainy here, so didn't matter that I was at work.  Car broke down this morning - minidrama - but nice man from the RAC came and fixed it, so I was soon on my way.

What colour hanging thingy did you get in the end Fidget?

Morning all, and happy birthday to OL.

One (or 3) of the things i planted yesterday was stipa tenuissima - hope it isn't invasive.  But it is lovely - short and wavy - like a bad hair day.  Looking at the state of my locks I can see why that comparison came to mind. Better go wash and dry it into submission .....

Have a grudging admiration for the deer, that neatly munch everything in sight

OL - did the 48 "free" lavenders last year (and the year before)- they are small to start ( think "48 perennials") but grow really quickly.  I will post photos of the 2012, and the 2013 ones later in the week (won't be home before dark tomorrow).

Weather for the week ahead, Brrr!!

Thanks for the heads up folks - will now know to check the forecasts towards the end of the week.  Would hate to lose things at this stage of the year.

Got EVERYTHING planted, and then the heavens opened to water it all in.  Very pleased with myself.  

Fantastic bluebell pics Dove.  Glad the bluetits have a customised des-res. Verdun's new border sounds fab (any chance of pics ??) And well done on de-spidering.  And happy birthday to Tracey 2moz ( got it right this time ).

And why do weekends go so fast ???

Glad to see they survived the snow David.  Although i am still none the wiser on how you manage to garden when it goes from 80 to snowin the space of 24 hours
