Morning chick. Cool here but dry. Again it shows the huge difference between north and south in this little island-  my Irises are a million miles away from having buds never mind flowers. I still have daffs in flower 

Mr Chick should be selling his lovely supports at Chelsea chick! and then

But Daisy - you're talking about it...that's what design - (of any kind)  should  do - get people talking, arguing and debating 

Job done!

The much lauded Lancelot 'Capability' Brown was vilified in his day for removing all the terracing and formal areas and replacing them with grass. 

A garden can mean lots of different things to people. I need a calm, cool garden so, for me, the winning show garden was delightful. It could also easily adapt to a standard suburban garden for a family. 

Horses for courses 

I don't like the 'fripperies' either I must admit. That's the advantage of recording. What a pleasure to have the fast forward button....

Morning all - or is it just you Daisy? 

Been awake and catching up on Chelsea as I was outside till half nine last night after work. Made the most of the sunny day and got a lot done. Good bargain Verd. Just been looking at my bargain from last year - a £4 Canna. It's looking well 

Off for a look round here to see what you've all been up to.

Glad you enjoyed my ice cream Dove...

I had one of daughter's lemon meringue cake things instead. Yumm.

Mike - please get some attention for that. My Dad suffered in silence with a broken arm after taking a tumble in the bathroom, and despite me telling him I'd come and take him to get it looked at he kept playing it down as just being 'a little bit sore'. When I came round two days after it had happened I couldn't believe the state of it. He was frightened of having  to go to hospital and leave my Mum. Fiercely independent.

Don't be a hero - it doesn't sound right

Morning all. Just been catching up on the Chelsea prog from last night - had about four attempts to get to the end but kept falling asleep...

Glad my wand waving had the desired effect - certainly wasn't working here yesterday but a better day today. Dove - get summat on that red bit. 

Salt mines for me soon so off to have a look round at what I missed last night
