Evening all, well was so busy on Sunday volunteering for Sholing valley study centre doing a meadow survey which was interesting spotting out different grasses and plants in small squares all over the field

 the square we used

 the field we were in it was extremely hot but really nice

 Millers pond in the meadow. The conservation day was busy but restful as well

There was no tyre wrestling done for the tyre planter as the tyre was took away by a member to get his work men to help so was not there 

Yesterday I was moving pots around the garden spotting more bits to sort out and I re done my easy fill wall planter with new herbs. Then spent most of afternoon helping my dad build a scaffolding tower lots of heavy lifting this is because he need to get to the roof.

Today been busy planting out sweet peas all over the garden, I still have not grown them well this year - even though I started them later in the year - not grown much and slugs kept attacking them  

So evening all

oh and here's a picture of my easy hanging basket 14" one with red verbena, blue lobelia and mesembryanthemum

Mesembryanthemum starting to flower now

Was worth a try one of the volunteers had taken the tyre away to get his builders to have a go at tyre wrestling, so much fun - if it does not have a wheel rim in you should all have a go

Sure you all been enjoying the weekend and this heat wave
