((hugs)) Flumpy.  I think a lot of us have experienced that at one time or another.  Don't let it dent your confidence ....he/she is probably having a miserable time in other areas and is not grownup enough to stop it crossing over.

Beautiful Joe F - that ceonothus is stunning.  Keep squeezing the plants in - it is giving it a wonderfully exuberant look

Morning all  Liked the look of that choisya too - what do the leaves smell like Hosta??

planning a GC trip to start the hunt for annuals for my pots .... Normally takes a couple of trips to find exactly what I am looking for - isotoma, blue salvia and marguerite daisies.  Will pot up and grow on for a few weeks.  

Also had some gaura seedlings arrive in the post that need planting, and a load of seedlings that need potting on.  Starting to run out of GH space

Molly says thank you for all your lovely comments .....its making her blush

Getting close to..CHELSEA

I'm going to Chelsea this year - with my sisters and my Dad.  We have been going for the last few years and always have a lovely time.  We are all lucky to live close enough to get there and back quite easily, so we always go for the afternoon only tickets.  By about 6pm most of the day ticketers have gone home exhausted, so its much easier to wander round the show gardens (its open til 8).  Makes the tickets a bit cheaper too

Love what you've created there Wonky  Won't be long before the gaps start filling with flowers, but in the meantime you can be proud of the freshly weeded beds.....very satisfying

Morning all Hope no one has been blown away.  Just been out to check for damage, and thankfully most plants seem ok.  Luckily the bit of trellis that caved in was one of the few without anything growing up it  Bracing ourselves for the next load of gales due to sweep through later today.  I hate wind
