New Year's Day 2016 Flower Count

Thought I'd start this thread to remind us that tomorrow we have to go out into the garden with our notebook and record all flowers in bloom on New Year's Day.

 

If your plans for this evening mean you're going to need it in order to function , remember to stock up on coffee and paracetamol today

The Undergardener is going to help me with some structural screening - maybe along the lines of a pergola - ish sort of thing - and then the new island bed will be constructed - I'll need lots and lots of plants

I get it trimmed every once in while   good for the growth as well!!

I thought you only had a balcony - didn't realise you had a garden and lawn as well.  Tell us more about your garden ... we like to see what other people are doing in their gardens ... maybe some photos?

Somehow New Year's Eve has crept up on me Pat - can't think how, it seems to occur most years

I shall have to pop down to the shops and get something nice for supper - we've used up all the Christmas leftovers except for the cheese.

Good morning all   G'day Pat  -  Happy New Year to you

Hope everyone with the sniffles and other lurgies are feeling better soon, and that all affected by the storms and flooding are ok ((hugs)).

Pauline, sit down and have another cuppa - that urge will pass

Garden shed for my LIttle balcony

I agree, check with the building engineers/structural surveyors for your building.  The weight of a large container of soil, plus the water it will hold, plus a person or two on your balcony sounds like a recipe for disaster to me.

What's wrong with a few pots? 

Otherwise you're just going to have to rent some garden land nearby or save up to move to a place with a garden.
