My mum won a goody bag with about 50 quids worth of gardening products from the telegraph gardening bit at the show. She only sat down for a rest, answered three questions on gardening correctly, and won.

The rope across the lawn is the washing line.  Sweet peas, I keep picking. I've run out of vases, now i give them to neighbours as well. You wouldnt say it was a good lawn if you saw it up close. More clover than anything, but it's a green space.

Lilies in pots will respond to a handful of fertiliser such as Fish Blood and bone tickled into the top couple of inches, in Spring before they start growing. I find lilies in the ground get eaten by slugs as they emerge, bit lilies in pots are more likely to succumb to vine weevil, so if they look like they are getting weaker, tip them out and look for white larvae chewing the roots.

I bought some of those squash it all in tights. Trouble is , it's all got to go somewhere and there will be enough spilling out of the decolletage as it is.

Its mizzly here. We were going to go to Bolsover castle. The lawns were mown yesterday. Maybe i'll read a book instead.

Asiatic lilies don't have much smell. The oriental tree lilies have loads of perfume. The best for perfume are the white Regale or Longiflorums.

These are L. henryi. Not much perfume but a nice clash (very dixterish) with dark leaved red dahlias.

Picked the last of the blackcurrants and gooseberries.

I think I am going to dig all the goosegogs out, I only grew them for dad. I get prickled to death, picking them. Of course its been a bumper crop  this year.

Topped and tailed now,I'll stick them in the freezer until I find a willing  recipient.
