Hello all

Star gaze lily - check by scratching a bit of the stems of the paniculater hydrangea to see if you can see a green layer inside then it is fine just late in growing, if it is brown no good check a few areas

Thanks Star gaze lily and 4thPanda

I really want to wash seed trays up to sow my first seeds but was dry then wet today quite a few times so no go today.

I got a fishing rod today to play with in the pond as under trees to help get any out that may fall in

Hello all

On Saturday I planted out two rhubarbs that I got from the potato fair before in January.

Put out mums raised bed with her help and filled with compost and added more soil around the pond then moved plants from near house around garden to where they may end up growing

Sunday wet and windy out so stayed in and cleaned some plant labels

This is my straw bug box I finally finished off and put out


Been on a quick trip to station today garden looking good all the daffs out

Here is a picture of the garden

Hello all, sorry but I have been away and whilst there bought my first iPhone which syncs with this mac on everything except signing in here!! Any ideas any one? I can read all your posts on the phone but can't respond without signing in. When I do so it rejects me because I already exist, if you get my drift.

Some random thoughts:-

Lemon drizzle cake in my village shop should be relabelled "Lemon Drenched" It's the best I have ever tasted, and I am a fully paid up expert.

Gg, just how much energy do you have and can I have some please? Tulip noses showing. 


Hello Woody the only thing I can think of is logging out of one to get into the other,

Have to get some cake from your village shop like lemon drizzle but Victoria sponge cake my favourite do they do that?

Your tulips noses showing on goodie - I so want to come visit your garden when they are in flower if I am allowed to.

For energy try Berocca tablets I do gives me a boost some days when I need it as well as cake

Hello all, here is how the pond looks now
