Sprig's Garden

Posted: 03/06/2014 at 23:02

Looks fantastic Sprig - its all filled out beautifully, and looks like its been there for years.  Its taken me 4 years to get anywhere close to that, and OH still wanders round exclaiming "but i can still see mud Chick"

Mich4 - all those matching pots look great.  Don't envy you the evening watering round though!  Have creatures moved into your pond yet?

Lovely honeysuckle Percy - bet it smells wonderful

Sorry your day was pants Lily

Escaped from my dungeon to find the sun shining, but some serious puddles around. Nearly home - hope noone else has bagsed the telly - i have some dedicated springwatching to do

Ooops that should have said "lovely". But lively is good too!

About to get off my train and go tottering - heels seem to be obligatory part of the office uniform..... Wonder if i'd get away with converses ?....?....

Glad to see giraffes are commonplace - looking out the train window at the gardens, but not spotted any here yet

Grey and mizzly drizzly here in Londinium - but will be stuck in a dungeon (sorry-meeting room) for most of the day so won't notice.

Have a lively day all

I agree ighten - its looking great. Every time we see pictures another part of your plot has been transformed . Lovely lupin in amongst the primrose cabbages!

KEF - love the colour of that dark purple clematis- and your angelica is looking statuesque too!

Fairy....that was a truly awful joke - but made me lol

Have not been around much, so have all the Springwatches still to catch up on .... think i will need to monopolise the telly a bit this week.  But love green woodpeckers calling - always reminds me of Bagpuss

Morning earlybirds .

Just done a GH watering session (too late home last night).  We have some green woodpeckers round at the moment - could hear one yaffling away, but didn't spot him (but, come to think of it, contact lenses not in yet, so probably wouldn't spot a giraffe in the garden either ).

Must do a labelling session this evening - plants for flooded gardens are being despatched very soon.  

But now I should get going.  London today, so might catch you all later when I am on the train
