Hi Marion hope you are well?, just been trying to catch up reading your thread, them pears look yummy and I like your friends clamentis it's got lovely flowers.

ive been busy today trimming my shrub, it's got so high I had to get my step ladders to trim the top, the bees love this shrub so I had to be careful not to disturb them, I've taken a few photos to share with you of plants in my garden that my bees are enjoying this year........

More to come..........

Awe Marion that looks lovely, and it's lovely that you found your late hubbies golf balls, happy memories, I know what you mean about the Ivy Marion, it's sticky stuff and feels like it's glued to the wall, I'm excited for you, keep up the good work

Hi Marion, lovely flowers I have to say, they look so healthy.

ivy is so time consuming to get off the wall, our next door neighbor used to have it growing on our fence and it took me ages to pull it off our side, thankfully he dug it all out yay.

The weather here was heavy rain this am then glorious sunshine in the afternoon, hope it's nice at the weekend so I can carry on gardening

Awe that's lovely Marion, see all the Ivy has gone too, I look forward to seeing this in spring, I bet it will look lovely Marion.

i started gardening at 10.30 this am and didn't stop until 4.30, I'm aching now but the garden looks good now, the only thing I need to do is trim my shrub, I think I may need my small step ladders to reach the top

Good morning Marion, lovely sunny weather here to, so I've got plenty to do in the garden today.

yesterday I replanted my 72 ground covering plants which where on sale at Thompson and Morgan, I have planted them all in my trays and gave them a good watering, I've forgotten there names but will send them later as I have them written down somewhere, my lawn needs cutting, shrubs need trimming so I think my bin may get a good filling to , have a lovely day today Marion, I will catch up later.

Good afternoon Marion, that must of been such a joy to rediscover the terrace, sounds like you've got very nice children and grandchildren with big hearts with a wonderful knowledgable mother & grandmother

Well you've all been busy bees this week, Marion did you enjoy your potatoes, my dad has been digging new potatoes for us, the taste is gorgeous mmmmm, I've not been able to get in the garden after work due to sore aching legs ( standing long hours), I will make up for it, my lawn needs cutting and my shrubs have grown heaps after all this rain, more to come tomorrow TTFN.
