Woody I spotted a planted container just for you all alpines looked good took a pic will post tomorrow, we went to the café had Victoria sponge cake - I like there compost too and cheaper bird food   

all I can think of when watching tennis is Monty saying it would be good if they had a squeaky ball like Nigel, that would be amusing to watch 

Raining here so watering the garden done

Hello all,  not caught up with what you lot been up to today yet

On Wednesday managed to plant up part of my white border the bit that needed doing, after digging out lot of agapanthus roots - never plant agapanthus in a raised bed with other plants best separated as other plants don't get much room to grow well as the roots take over - all planted with flower now including the buddleia some plants put back and some of the ones waiting around planted

Yesterday I cut the grass in all the area of the garden, was a hot day bit windy and used the new-ish long handled lawn sheers and spotted a comma butterfly in the garden first time I have seen one of them in the garden

finally my one sweet pea flowered

Been on a trip to Ringwood - InExcess garden centre today got lots of wood to make a raised bed and a few plants Monarda pink lace, Petunia mochaccino, Dahlietta -dahlia Lucy

I am Knackered now time for tea and rest

Steam train watching tomorrow going past Sholing station on the Portsmouth line
