Good morning DD and everyone as you arrive   G'day Pat   Tell us more about the Snowy Mountain Scheme ...

OH has set off on his bike for work - he's only got the Saturday lad with him today, usually there are three of them on a Saturday but the boss seems to think they won't be busy ....... but the sun is still shining here in the east, the garden centre is open today and not tomorrow .... I think they'll be busy. 

I'm going up to the gc later this morning - I need some lawn treatment for the front lawn, seaweed fertiliser for the back lawn, clematis fertiliser for the climbers, JI 3 to repot the fig and the Campsis radicans, and some string ............. can I get anything for anyone?


 Coffee anyone?

Hosta - that's looking good

I was going to cut my big sage bush hard back today, but it was covered with ladybirds 'getting to know each other' and I didn't want to disturb them - I'll do it another day - however I did take some heeled cuttings - I'll probably replace that big sage next year.
