HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning KEF and any/everyone else 

Fine drizzle here at the moment - heavy downpours promised for this afternoon.  I shall make sure those stakes/supports are fixed.

Froglets

We leave areas of longer grass in the shadier areas and shoosh the froglets into it before mowing - and then we keep our eyes very open indeed and keep stopping to shoosh them back into their nursery!!!

Oh Daisy  

That reminds me of when my daughter and her boyfriend moved into their first place together - they put tubs of plants on the steps and around the parking area - I think they lasted a couple of weeks at the most.    Now she concentrates her energy on the back garden and leaves the front bare. 

Panda  ((hugs))

Happy anniversary Mr & Mrs OL 

Been to the doctor...

Suggestions for filling a small south facing border

Posted: 26/06/2014 at 19:18

Well, you'll probably have more actual time while baby is very small than when he or she starts crawling and stays awake more in the daytime, but you might not have much energy if you're not getting much sleep when baby is small.

 Just make sure you don't wear yourself out - you need to save some energy for when it reaches its teens

Firstly, congratulations on baby - so exciting 

Agree, cistus are lovely, trouble free and will come back year after year.  Hardy geraniums too will give you lots of colour for very little work.

If you love purples, what about some asters (we used to call them Michaelmas Daisies).  Go for a few of the more compact shorter growing ones and they'll fill the autumn with colour 

All of these will be perfectly happy with the bulbs growing up through them in the spring
