After a couple of very busy weeks (hunting for a new job -still-, birthdays, holidays and Mum visiting) I can finally concentrate on gardening again. And also, talk about it. I have been reading messages though, just didn't have the time to react.
At the moment the weather overhere is bright and sunny but very windy. And quite warm too - about 20C. I'm glad to see everything growing again after such a wet and cold March and April.
OH made me a small border along the wall we share with our neighbours and I planted it with Garrya elliptica 'James Roof', Clematis 'Pink Fantasy', Geranium sanguineum, Hakonechloa macra 'Aureola', Pulsatilla vulgaris 'Rubra, Astilbe 'Sprite' and Campanula posharskyana. Also some small bulbs. It looks really lovely now in that corner and I was able to put in a lot of plants I still had left from my previous garden.Needless to say I still have lots more to do. Next project will be to clear the front garden of the terrible weeds that are growing there.
@Geoff, your Lonicera is Lonicera tatarica, probably 'Rosea'. Have you been to Spain yet?
