Me too Beau fact I've started making notes of planting places for the autumn, and crocus colours that I like ......did I ever mention how much I love this Forum 

BTW Beau, my tulip pots this year are full of purple stripey ones inspired by your pics last year (or might even have been the year before) - Rem's Favourite mixed with a dark purple and a white .....will post photos when they do their thing.  Bet you never knew just how inspirational you are

Good to see you back Lily - really hope I wasn't one of those causing you grief .....I normally only have time for one post a day, and often don't mention anyone else (self centred ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฎ).....but that doesn't mean I don't read a lot more than I post.  Have missed hearing tales of little poppet.

.......and whoever suggested a herbaceous borders at Kew visit ......fantastic idea, count me in

Bemused here too Lizzie

Can I take a hammock to the island please ?  And a pile of books ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š 10 minutes wifi a day for chats with Chicklets.....and maybe it can have a mountain in the middle as well as a waterfall so Fairy can go climbing, and I can have a ramble in the foothills.  

....I'm on my way to the airport now โœˆ๏ธโœˆ๏ธโœˆ๏ธ

If it helps with identification, it was particularly bad yesterday evening - took me 4 attempts to post something without losing the lot - the error message goes something like "there was a problem with this page so it was reloaded"

Hope LilyP got some more sleep - maybe subconciously you think littl'un is still around.

Great sign Pat, and even greater sky โ˜€๏ธโ›…๏ธโ˜๏ธ

Raised beds sound good, plus plenty of added oraganic matter.  We have a veg bed where a row of the dreaded leylandii once stood.  We had the stumps ground out (by a man with a stump grinder) and fished out loads of roots, but have been growing things successfully ......just keep piling on the muck !

Didn't quite dodge the showers Fairy, but we have good waterproofs โ˜”๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฆโ˜”๏ธ. Persevere with that coldframe, they are sooooo useful

Glad to hear the sun is shining north of the border 

All my first batch of seeds have germinated and been moved to the next propagator, so now I have room to start some more ....a task for one evening this week
