Does anyone know what this is ?  Growing in profusion in the shady damp bits of Hidcote today - love the colour....

HELLO FORKERS!

Count to ten (twice) MrsG - you're a bigger hearted person than her.  So glad the lost ring is found, and Ma Verdun is getting a night out.

Just back from Hidcote and Kiftsgate - both remarkable in very different ways - had a wonderful day (lemon drizzle passed muster).  However anyone dreamed of making a garden on a cliff face escapes me - but i am very glad they did.

Morning All

First day of my hols - don't feel great when the pills wear off, but fine when they are doing their stuff.  OH has today off too, and is coming garden visiting with me - so at least i don't have to do the driving.  Will report back later ..... But am very excited

Lovely to see Ggirl back - look after yourself.  Zingy lime should wake those poor commuters up

Hope the ring turns up KEF - hate it when something like that happens.  

Panda, Lily, hope work (or more to the point, colleagues) are ok this week - amazing how the workplace can bring out the worst in some people.

HELLO FORKERS!

Glad you enjoyed your pootling punkdoc.

i am feeling grotty - temp, sore throat, shivery.  Tomorrow is the first day of my week off work, so feeling particularly aggrieved.  Meant to be going to Hidcote/Kiftsgate tomorrow - need to dig out the day nurse

I'd forgotten just how gorgeous your garden is Bev.  Its put a big smile on my face

Got to get out there today to do all the things i said i would do yesterday - before i got distracted with plant buying.

Good luck to Mr KEFs team at Wembley

When is the last time to sow tomato seeds

How many plants do you need Sarah? If its not very many you might be better buying small plants from a GC - they are not very expensive, and would get you back to where you normally are at this time of year.

Its not me, but OH, who does the hard graft, but much better to build your own - can customise the size etc.  and it makes it all your garden - rather than something you can order.  

Its difficult juggling supernoodle (got the t-shirt) - but worth it 10 years down the road ...

Fairy - great to see it all coming together - borders are looking great 

David - loads of colour - think I have to agree - spring takes some beating for optimism and excitement levels
