Doc's Ligularia and Pasqueflowers prompted me to take a pic of mine with the new violet Pasqueflowers I got last week tucked in beside it:

I can't think what you mean MrsG....

Forgot to remind you all that Beechgrove would have been on in England and Wales this morrning. I watched it on Friday. Doc's little spring pea on the Garden Gallery thread reminded me as they had some on the prog. Sorry

An avenue of matching trees will have great impact a1154. The white ones are stunning. Good luck with it - it will make a very impressive entrance

Phormiums and Box balls/pyramids etc give a very contemporary look. I use some of the buxifolia Hebes instead of box to give the same look. These are all evergreen. A cool palette with the odd splash of colour works well in a small area too. Put plants in pots in a row of three or five to give repetition and uniformity. Use good sized 'statement' pots all the same, not small fiddly pots which are all different.

Evening all. Just in as it cleared up here too and was very pleasant, so another trellis painted. Would have liked to cut grass but too tired now and trellis was more important. Hope the forecast is wrong tomorrow too and it clears in the afternoon!

Pond looks splendid Dove. In a month or two it will be very settled and chick's right - it's the greatest entertainment.  I miss that very much.

Could do with a couple of nice gnomes fishing in it - just to finish it off and give it a really classy look....


What Would You Do Next?

Can't argue with that 

I've topped some of mine up already NG and will save my homemade stuff for later.

Just for that Verd - I'm sending you the endless rain we've had here  most of the week...

It's actually gone off now. I've been to the dreaded supermarche and a couple of things fell in the trolley. Well, it would have been wrong to leave them there to dry up and shrivel away...

Might even clear enough to get summat done
