HELLO FORKERS!

Ggirl - Losely Park is lovely - right near me.  The walled garden is all divided up, and they have a great white garden.  Might still be some roses too.  Sorry, don't understand codes

Just done the rounds with the hose - tomatoes, cucumbers, aubergines and peppers coming along well.  Moved a bird feeder over to my aphid infested sweetpeas at the weekend, and i'm convinced it is making a difference already.  Have certainly seen loads of blue tit chicks in the garden.

glad the KEFs and Fidget had a lovely day  And that Lizzie is enjoying her Rose time And that Pandas roots are no more ..... And that st swithuns day has been nearly dry

Shabby Chic Anyone?

BM - know nothing about interior design, but love that scabious

I do the shabby bit quite well, just never managed the chic to go with it -chick by name, not by nature

What's the star in your garden right now

Evening all.  Just in from mines, and pilates.  Need to start work at 7.30 tomorrow - which means a 5.30am start, so will say my good mornings now too, as i won't have time for a morning browse.

Anna is such a pretty name Tomato Tarte Tatin with treacly bits sounds like a winner to me Love agapanthus too.  I keep all mine in ordinary plastic pots so i can bring them into the dry in winter - so instead of planting things in with them I mix them up with my other pots.  Most of mine are really dark blue (nearly all called midnight-something-or-other), apart from 2 new ones specially for my niece called Megans Mauve  Only just starting to flower, and will still be there at end of August.  I feed mine tomato food - maybe thats wrong

Morning - sunshine , work

My goldfinches only ever eat niger seed - but all the others clear the normal seed feeders in the space of a day.  Have moved a feeder over to the sweetpeas in the hope they will choose aphids for afters
