I have a quandry

We had aphids on the roses but we've been watching the nesting bluetits collecting them and taking them into the nest box - now the chicks have fledged and have hoovered up any remaining aphids - none left at all and the roses look really healthy - no need at all for nasty chemicals

Poor Under Gardener - he was doing so well with digging the hole for the tree, then he hit a large lump of concrete - bless him, rather than change the chosen spot for the tree, he broke the concrete up 


Verdun's always been able to look after himself - I'm sure he'd be horrified at the thought of people sending unpleasant PMs sort of 'on his behalf'

Hello all   The Under Gardener has earned his roast chicken today - amelanchier planted, thoroughly watered and mulched, part of the veg patch dug over, raked down and sweet corn and squashes planted and both lawns mowed.  I have (very carefully) planted up the new sunny bed and my neck is ok - fingers crossed.


The chicken (stuffed with a lemon and a handful of tarragon from the garden) is in the oven 

Weed? ID help please

The leaves don't look like those of our meadow buttercups 

Crazy creepy crawlies!!

It's obviously the day for rose chafers - we found one on a towel on the washing line this morning - aren't they beautiful

Good morning all   OH is in the garden already following detailed instructions re preparing site for amelanchier and other plants - I'm not allowed to lift anything or do anything much as all the driving I've been doing has done 'something' to my neck/shoulder - it's happened before and rest and Deep Heat will sort it out, but as OH doesn't drive we're dependent on me to get us to our holiday destination so I'm being treated like porcelain 


I am allowed to roast a lovely big chicken from the farm shop, and hang washing out ... apparently 


I've not really had time to do much reading back, but am sending hugs to all who need them ((hugs))
