Hello Forkers - May Edition

Hello folks   I've been looking around a lovely garden   

Wonky has worked so hard, and the garden really looks like a 'Gardener's Garden' now ... she took me to a lovely plant nursery and we found ourselves a few bargains ... I bought a couple of Verbascums, Cotswold Beauty and Southern Charm and a Lav. angustifolia 'Miss Katherine'  ... all three will go in the newly extended west facing border at the front of the house.  

We also had a lovely lunch here 

I've also come home with three Viburnum tinus ... possibly 'Eve Price' , which Wonky rescued a while back and potted up and saved for me ... I plan to use them to provide some structure on the Shady Bank ... Wonky also gave me some seedlings from her plum coloured wallflowers.  

I grew up with dogs, always had dogs on the farm and smallholding, and my children grew up with dogs and I love (most) of them ... however my home and lifestyle have changed and nowadays a dog wouldn't suit us, and we wouldn't suit a dog.  

However, from what little I know of Mr & Mrs Pdoc, I've a feeling that Mrs Pdoc may be a very wise woman

Planting bulbs

Plant them and hope for a miracle   The lily bulbs might do something ... as for the tulip bulbs, it all depends whether they flowered this spring or last ..........

Morning all  

Pansy ... Glad your brother is on the mend and well enough to have a winge.

Washing left out on the line all night didn't cause it to rain  

The far is loaded with all sort of stuff (plants, mags, BBQ!) to deliver to Wonky ... Looking forward to seeing the changes in her garden, and the greenhouse of course !

Good morning Fairy  have a lovely weekend. 

It strikes me that Clari's ex employers struggled with the fact that she was better at the job than they were at theirs ... 

Just watched a single swan fly past the bedroom window towards the marshes 

Why have these leaves gone brown?

Drought can also produce discolouration and most areas have had little if no rainfall for a good while,  so make sure they're not thirsty, but they don't look it to me

Hello Pat and everyone  It's an absolutely beautiful morning ... and although I left a line of washing out it hasn't rained ... I may need to water the lawn tomorrow if we've not had more rain by then to dissolve the weed & feed on the front lawn.

Try Broadleigh bulbs. You can buy online. Very reliable - I've bought quite a few native bulbs from them.
