That's ok Chicky good bit of extra Chelsea to watch makes it like two weeks long, me recording it too

I went into garden with lobbers and cut back some of next doors hedge which was over my bee and butterfly border and hiding my foxgloves and teasel and stopping the rain getting there

I also cut hedge of a different area in the garden and now garden waste bin full just have to wait till next week for it to be emptied

I had a look at my broad beans in the raised bed from Woody flowering like made so good amazing - then I looked down to the soil and a large round hole was there - think ratty using the raised bed to help get under fence to next door

There is a cute ratty in our garage think she has little ratty's now they made a nest in there some where and found all the stored bird food now, I feed them now and food stored elsewhere

Evening all, well wind tornado yesterday for the fayre, quite a few of the gazebos were taking off and trying to cross the field - getting damaged in the process.  It was all hands to the pump each time a gazebo tried taking off. 

Quite a few people packed up early and we left early as it was impossible to stay any longer in the wind, there were not many members of the public there when we left although the raffle had not been called.

Good news was that I sold some seeds - flower seeds and runner/French bean seeds.  The money will go towards the upkeep of the Station flowerbed.

Of course, as they had a plant stall, I had to get a few.  More plants in pots, just like Verdun, waiting to be planted out. 

Then today, still a bit windy, I sorted out replanting the raspberry canes, giving them new compost.  Hard work separating them and removing the grass that had grown around them.  Snap, Chicky.

Hello all me back

Just watered my garden with a cuppa in my hand.

 

You watered your garden with tea - interesting

 

I went back in the garden planted out my broad beans a lot smaller than the ones I planted from Woody.

I have been planting up purple loosestrife that I brought - into a large pond pot and some flag iris (yellow colour I think - they were from next door) into a few pond pots and then freezing my hand and arm putting them in the pond, now 3 pond skaters gained another one

Also had to finish my pack of slug gone - the wool pellets around a few plants around the pond try stop them being eaten

What have Thompson and Morgan sent me?

Normally on the packaging there is a label with your name and address on and the plant name on it too
