Brumbull, I will be the one on the far left we are all in the race together

plants I ordered from  http://www.hardys-plants.co.uk/  still some for front garden ground cover -Lamium maculatum 'White Nancy' and Anemone leveillei white and blue bits

for a border in back garden Geum 'Lisanne' yellow and Thalictrum flavum ssp. glaucum yellow

will get pond plants (ones for around the pond) later have spotted some nice ones from CJ bird food well in the catalogue they sent me http://www.birdfood.co.uk/ctrl/node:148;page:107;/perennial_plants

think when go get pre made liner will see what plants I can get for the pond after a bit as think you need to leave water for a while to settle first - will be using waterbutt water that I have been saving from the waterbutts into water bottles, will carry down garden in bits then not to hurt to many muscles

Evening all

had to go back into garden after a break in the rain planted out more stock plug plants, aster blue dwarf, a abutilon canary bird yellow plant and a red schizostylis major - that lily thing simular that you got chicky but red one really nice colour a this time of year

Sorted bit of pond area out earlier clearing out old liner in bits - some of the trees have rooted well into it all and bits of old carpet and lots of dirt. trying to sort it all out as a pond again with a pre made liner, lots of effort for that trying to pull it all out and clear it not been a pond for a few years as it leaked
