Hello all

Filled half a garden waste bin

Ended up going to dig up some more dirt for free from a garden in Bitterne, not too far away with mum and dad filled the boot with bags worth of dirt then emptied it out in our garden then back for more 1 more boot load, then as the soil is very clay-e broke it up a bit and put around the pond, so knackering back sore what a sunny day today and fed the birds earlier too

some one near by was having a bonfire again lucky wind blowing it the other way

Hello all

Here is some pics of little court garden - was a little windy and started spitting (raining) did enjoy walking around and viewing all the plants in flower

 The crocus looks amazing - what a sight

Hellebores look good

There was a nice tree house we went up much less windy up there and nice height we could stand up - not just for kids

Lots of snowflakes

Here I am enjoying the garden,

A bag my sister gave me for my Bday and put Gardengirl on (me)

This is my favourite hellebore the yellow one

 but like this one too

 this one is really dark

 Lots of aconites and nice places to sit - not like we did - no sitting for us

What is this silver plant?  really like this anyone know

I brought a few plants - Snowflakes as I call them, crocus tommasinianus , scilla and Ipheion jessie.   

An enjoyable garden to look around, big walled area for there kitchen garden and they had some chick

Woody I have my lawn dressing 3 bags of stuff ready and waiting to do again me new to all this lawn stuff only done a bit last year other than cutting the grass.

One area of the garden had a shelter on - moss really bad there, grass was brown when took shelter down so did not scarify that bit of lawn let it get nice and watered by rain green now just lots of moss. Will need to buy lots of lawn seed as lots of bare ground as well

Hillier's still have some bags

Think I will try this product's-Lawn-Magic-5-Litre-Grass-Feed.product.502957.html?sc=502957-DRIL&cm_sp=VIEWPOSITION-_-9-_-502957
