Something for the weekend.......enjoying gardens and flowers.

Woody - I've just looked at the pix and I'm lost for words. I can't believe how immaculate your garden is and how much work you must have put in. In fact all the houses and gardens look absolutely stunning. You should all be really proud of yourselves. What a lovely village you live in. Was the test match any great shakes? Not heard or seen the news tonight.

I love that slate/stone circular sculpture in garden 10, Windhover Cottage. 

Good Evening FORKERS

art it's a hard one. I'd be furious if it happened to me but as I witnessed - these guys can make life very unpleasant for you. They can 'accidentally' destroy stuff and feign ignorance. Can you approach him and say something like 'I don't know if you realised your sprayer was so close to my garden but it was and it's killed some of my plants' etc.? Ultimately you have to go on living there and it could make your life a misery if you go about it the wrong way. Is there anyone else you could go to for advice?

Daisy you're not having much luckweatherwise- you need to change your working days!

Not grown them either Verd but I'd have thought they would just be like onions? Are they grown differently from other members of onion family?

I took a lot more photos today, you wouldn't believe how awful some of them are

Verd- you're right. So sorry about your friend. Gets all our little moans and groans into perspective doesn't it?

Tina- that's why I'm glad my eyesight's going 

chicky - snap- my youngest did that too! She quite enjoyed it - only did the practical bit of the course (it's all so complicated what bits they can do or not ) and I think it helped boost her confidence a lot.

Gilly I avoided the fence today, apart from painting some planks, and sorted a bit at front gate. Planted a couple of evergreens-a juniper and a chryptomeria- still need another plant for it, possibly a berberis- nice and jaggy!! Will have to work myself up to relocating the b****y posts tomorrow

art- I wondered about Wintersong's little hut too -also thought it was a beehive.

Nut - I looked up the link you gave and it's identical to the geranium so many thanks for that-wouldn't have doubted you for a minute! Love Mrs. Sinkins too   - recognised it's lovely frilly edges right away. Used to have it many years ago - beautiful scent.

Thanks nut - you're a star as always! Will check that out 

It just came in from somewhere but no idea where! May even have been in with one of the plants bought from the nursery for last house as we got loads from there.  It will work well in front border.

Lovely pix Singy - every time I try to get a pic of something it's gone by the time I get the camera! That's a lovely foxglove - what variety is it - do you know?

Art we had a very 'awkward' farmer next to us at last house. He could have made life difficult if you got on the wrong side of him. He had issues with a resident further up the road and was always squabbling with her. We just kept a distance and were always pleasant to avoid any nonsense, so I understand your problem. Not an easy one to resolve satisfactorily
