Hello all, me not slept well either 

Here is the alpine plant pot Woody from InExcess 8ltr pot £12.99 looks really good

Iris Pallida variegata like this one £6.50


So here is the steam train going through Sholing it was going quite fast so did not get many pics there, hope they enjoyed going past our garden,  few people came to take pics and see the train

Botley station later in evening, this is the fire truck that had to fill the train with water following it around all day to fill with water

and the hose use

Train coming into the station

As the train had to fill with water it stopped here for 10 mins - so I got a better pic

The water filling up from the fire truck was really loud and the steam coming out so really loud altogether bad on ears - found a few pennies at both stations so 5p up

I have harvested a few spuds, broad beans, lettuce only eat from garden try and hide it in my sandwiches and peas which were yummy - which made me think where is poddington pea gone they not been on for a bit

Chicky your sweet peas look lovely

mine in pot flowering a bit, ones in ground still not there yet to any signs of flowers sowed all at same time but bit late this year and not doing that great

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
