Marion  Missed you heaps, has all your scaffolding come down now?, and all fixed?.

I gave five of my curly Kale to my dad and I have planted out four in my own garden, my tomatoes are bigger than a 50p but still green, when do they turn red ? The plants them self are nearly 5ft  And still flowering.

lovely to have you back Marion, it's bright blue sky today can't wait to cut the lawn, I planted all my tulip bulbs yesterday all over the garden.

Fruitcake glad you got your green house finished, and you've been lucky with the weather too , wanted to plant out my curly Kale after work but I was booked in for legs, tums and bums, I've given five plants to my dad and got four left for myself

Fruitcake, are you trying to paint over that horrible red creosote, the people who used to own our house used the red stuff and it so hard to aint over, weve ended up getting new panels all round and used a nice dark creosote, i know what you mean by fitting it around work and weather :-\, i keep trying to win the lottery but no such luck

Marion congratulations on the Bronze well done  You feel proud, I know I would. Glad to see your scaffolding is up now, it probably won't take them long now , I bet you've been enjoying harvesting this week in the nice weather, been checking the two curly kales in my border and they look a lot stronger already, thanks Marion for your good advice again

Hi Marion, your pink flowers look lovely, they look like butterflies, the bottom photo, my dad gave me the same plant, he has them in the front garden too.

the weather went grey here but stayed dry so I was able to cut my lawn and planted two of my Curley Kale, I put them next to the chives and flowers, I've got ten more in the green house, think I will have to give some to my dad as he as a large veg patch .

wich garden are you going to see on the 14th ?

Marion, lovely pictures again, I like your sun dial, we live about a mile away from a busy motorway too, and live on the main road, but it doesn't affect our plants thank goodness, well this morning the sun is shining and my last day Of my holiday, if the lawn is dry later I will give it a trim then relax and enjoy the garden for a change 

What's the star in your garden right now

David Spikes, I'm guessing you don't like my chrysanthemums? Or is it just the smell ?, I didn't think they where that bad
