Morning all  just off for a bit of mane taming, and need to pop in to the GC on the way

Not sure about a week of rain in the forecast here, more like a week of frosts (although we seem to have escaped this morning).  No matter, the last lot of seedlings are getting pricked out today regardless, will just have to fleece them overnight.  Other task for the weekend is go round and give everything a new feed, and pot up a new planter of sempervirums. And plant out a few other things that have been growing on over the winter too.  I have a whole crop of Kefidget delphiniums to go out there

When Doves Cry - my favourite too.  Used to play the single on constant repeat (remember.....when you used to leave the arm of the record player up).  

Thought of you Wonky, when I heard the news.

Too sad

Morning all

My weekend to-do list is getting longer and longer ...and (apart from mane taming) it all seems to involve the garden.  Its that time of year when I start to get just a teeny bit obsessed.

First buds opening on one of my ceonothus and the wisteria against the house wall.  And some of my pot tulips have started too (bit disappointed that it looks like they will have a staggered flowering, which was really not quite what I had in mind).

Enough already. There will be no living legends left. Once again, I am really really sad

I have 4 Annabelles that are all doing well - I live in Surrey, but in quite a cold frost pocket, so not everything survives - so I would say it does fine with the cold.  Winds might be a problem once the flower heads come out, because they are so big, but you could stake it quite successfully I think.  Fantastic plant
