OL - unless you need them for something fancy, check out the recycling section of your GC for pots for free - ours always has a great selection of sizes if you don't mind black plastic ones

Great pot - whos ever it is

Just waved off littlest chicklet with a rucksack that weighs a ton.  Surgically removed her phone too - the most testing part of the challenge..

More tea required and then the garden beckons.  Pulled up 200 oak saplings from my flower beds yesterday (i counted - it was therapeutic) - about 1000 left to go. Hate acorns

Lobelia for wedding at end of May

I wouldn't worry about getting them flowering too early - once they start, they go on and on without a break.  So if it was me i would bring them into a GH, or the lightest indoor place you can find, to hurry them along a bit.  Good luck, and enjoy the wedding

Three whole days stretch before me .... Very happy chicky.  About to go and unfleece the GH - think we escaped frost too.

OH has half built his dry stone wall - looking great.  Littlest chicklet has DofE camping trip tomorrow and Monday, which will require some taxi-ing ...... But other than that, the garden awaits my undivided attention

......the good guys

Parkers have just replaced a wintersuckle I bought from them in January which failed to come into leaf.  No quibbles, and replacement looks very healthy - so thought I should put in a good word for them

Oh, so much more than a swing Archie

Morning Dove - enjoy your lunch.  Hope the horses are soon secured Lizzie, and that MrsG's head/cold have improved.

More rain here, but sun in the end yesterday .... Good growing weather again.  Birds managed to empty the bird feeder in a record 4 hours yesterday (i was working at home, so saw it go down from 1-5pm).  Are they feeding chicks already i wonder, or just getting themselves ready?

No to everyone who asks for donations ? Do you agree or disagree with this ?
