White flowers lily - great for a shadier spot if it's dampish 


Posted: Yesterday at 19:58

The one I have in the ground is still green and covered in flowers - that one is in a pot as the bed it's going in won't be ready for a while.

It's nice because the ordinary hydrangeas don't have that foliage colouring as they die back. A real bonus, and one of the reasons I chose them too

Glad you had a lovely day chicky. Hope you enjoy the oak leaf hydrangea. The colour of the foliage is lovely just now

Sorry MrsG - I'm going to sound like OH and archie as well! If a job's worth doing...

Always had a drier KEF, but had a bad experience with the most recent one - condenser type - and got rid of it. Hopeless in the wet weather though with all the bedding etc, and this house is so small  - no spare rooms to dry stuff. It has now been plugged in and tested 

No outdoor buildings here BM - so will have to clutter the kitchen with it till building work's done - probably in spring now 

Tried to go out and do some bits and pieces but rain came on every time I went out and it was none too warm, so not much done. I enjoyed watching the dunnocks navigate the hanging bird table feeder. One of them was useless - kept standing on the roof and looking sadly at the sides trying to work out how to get in - and the other one just jumped onto the roof off the top of the fence and straight in for his tea!

Phloem bundles sounds like something that cats cough up lily....

Just as well I eat my nanas green 

doc- quite sad that professional people are like that, Just shows that even with all the medical progress made, we really haven't come very far 

I've been cleaning and organising some space in the kitchen for the drier getting delivered later today. Not really got room for it in there but I can't stand having washing lying around the house to dry on various 'things'. It will go in the new bit when it's built -if that ever happens 

Time for some lunch and possibly get out as it's trying to clear up 

Pleached hedging advice

Hornbeam is ideal as felixstowe gardener says. Beautiful for any type of hedging. It will take a fair bit of time and effort to achieve though. Good luck with it if you decide to go ahead.

I often seem to lose days fact I'd lost a whole week at work because we had an order to be completed for the 29th and I thought that was next weekend 

and when daughter's off school I'm completely lost as to what day it is 

The clock change in spring never affects me but this one does. Is it something to do with the fact that the spring one is 'optimistic' and the autumn one... just isn't

I've  always wanted Everest Woody. I'm sure you can spare one can't you? Pretty please 

You could get a pair of braces for your jeans BL 

Sorry KEF - never thought of that  and no, I didn't wash them Pauline - no room in the machine 

LP- I don't think a one off treatment would do much for my back - maybe about twenty 

Glad the finger's a bit better MrsG. It's weird when the nail comes off though isn't it?

I'm with you Forester - bananas have to be green for me. I used to work with someone who called them 'giraffey' when they started to get really yellow with the brown spotty markings. Very apt!

Mine often get a bit yellow at this time of year and through the winter because of heavy rain. As long as they're in good gritty soil and not sitting in wet conditions long term, they recover. As mine are all in pots I sometimes move them into the shelter of the house if there's prolonged rain...if I remember
