Morning all. Dull here - and the weather is like that too....

More rain coming tomorrow Jimmy 

Work for me - might get something done later though if possible. Have you thought about something like an ornamental pear Jimmy? I had one in a previous front garden which was lovely through spring and summer  - same sort of aspect as you describe.

Good luck to chicklet - almost there 

Tremendous result Woody - and well deserved after all your work.

Right - I'm offski. Catch you all later 

An invasion of you forum lot's privacy...

Steve - I look exactly like my avatar pic...the one on the right that is....

I'd frighten everyone away too if I put a photo of me on here 

My two girls are very photogenic- unlike me. Hate having my photo taken 

I always mean to put more info about my garden on the profile but I never remember. There was nothing in it when I moved here anyway! Soil - clay mostly, inside leg - no idea, hat size was 6 and 7/8 (in old money when I rode) favourite sarnie - chicken or tuna with home grown greenery

Gorgeous pix as always - too many to mention individually!

BL - what is the lovely double white clematis with the greenish centre? It's stunning 

Your Miss B is much more established than mine Lesley - hope mine looks like that by next year 

Panda - that might be one of the Dutch irises - I planted a few pots with them autumn before last.

I didn't get round to sowing seeds when I should have - the sweet peas might flower in November...

On the plus side - my new clematis are lovely!

Morning all. Glad the travelling forkers had a lovely day- looking forward to pix and full reports 

Glad your holiday went well Liri. 

'Waxing the parquet' - hope that's not a euphemism Dove...

Didn't need my simmit yesterday Lesley - although it was only about 6 degrees when I set off. No wind but wet, and cloudy higher up so no views. Sun was splitting the trees when I was half way back to the car though...   I did get a pic down in the glen of what I think was an orchid so I'll put it on later when I get a chance.

Off for a quick look round here before I take daughter to work and - also myself!

Have a good day everyone

Glad you had a lovely holiday LP-  while you were away we've had summer and it's now autumn....

Great to hear your good news Matty - all very positive for you. 

Hope the cat and dog don't fight like know....

I've been busy outside finishing my fence planters and generally tidying up. I can recommend silicone sealant for sticking pieces of trailing ivy to timber so that they grow where you want them. 

I'll have a quick look round here before I sort my gear and get an early night. Up early to go and walk at Loch Fyne. Have a good night all - I'll see you tomorrow night

That geranium's really pretty nut. Mine gets a bit of morning sun and even a little in the late afternoon. It's grown loads since I put it in last autumn- flowering right now and looking lovely. I might split it and get a piece in the sunnier side of the plot too

Lesley  Hope you feel better soon. Miss B is lovely - I bought a very small one early last year, potted it on and put it in it's final place late last summer. It's been flowering steadily in the last few weeks. Passed a lovely one earlier today - spilling over an ivy covered wall. Beautiful 

We get a short season up here Dacha (Scotland) Cold, wet springs and autumn arrives in August, although we often get some nice weather then. Plants can get held back quite a bit. Everything starting to grow away now though.

The Prom princess is her PJs, in her bed, and with a sore knee ....these youngsters are such lightweights.... 

WW - that's a great prize! Hope the plants are suitable or you might have to visit a GC. Well, someone has to struggle on and do these things....

Dianthus are great for pots MrsG

Lunch beckons and then I'll get on outside for a bit. Dull and cold here -11 degrees. Summer's over  

Falling back in love with your garden!

Love the man cave Firecracker 

Love yours  too Innewhambo  

I keep moving so I don't get the chance to fall in or out of love with my gardens! I did love the  garden I had until about five years ago. I was there for about fifteen years and there was nothing much in it at the start.
