Just found on BBC Four that there is a programe on Gardens in Snowdonia - Bodnant Gardens.  Looks like it might be worth watching.  On NOW!!!

Well Mrs garden did not spend money on half the bulbs as station gets funding, so I got the money back from main man,  the plant I got was what I ordered last year september but they were behind earlier in year

Do I have the most bulbs or has some one else got more?

I know there are not all for the garden as quite a few for the train station garden

was a bit of a grey day today

Bit of a exciting day got my bulb delivery of 200 spring bulbs from gw mag and then later got a plant from T&M a lonicera chic choc

Here is a pic of all the bulbs so many that need planting

That's 577 bulbs

Been in garden for a little while trying to sort out pond area ready so that eventually a plastic pond liner, clearing brambles and a load of ivy and a small bit of digging - rest for another time

also been ordering a few garden bits online

Qqqqqqqquite exciting........

Where have all the ladybirds gone?

Posted: 30/09/2013 at 11:00

Had lots of larve but most of ladybird hatched and have gone only seen 1 or 2 in the garden

Lots of ladybirds up the train station garden were I volunteer they all like the yellow grit bin - maybe need something that bright in the garden to attract them in

4thPanda beautiful think I had those tulips come up in the garden

Chicky less weeds in your garden

Thanks Dove, could not find it, me leave caterpillars alone

Mrs Garden did you go and find a long handled bulb planter think I will get the yeomans one on that website- saw one on qvc this morning made me think it would be easy to use if it picks the soil up properly

I was listening to the buzzing of bees and wasps on the daisy flower to day and watching they were loving the plant and spotted a slowworm was very fast to hold

One of my autumn crocus was in flower today
