Thanks KEF for the hug

That garden was huge, swimming pool in one area like in a walled garden of it's own - could see it though a gate a bit and a tennis court they had a veg patch which was not doing that well -  sounds strange to say but was nice to see as mine not going that great all slugs eating stuff and being behind on growing veg

There was a small few spits of rain but then stopped dam sure the garden needs a bit of watering again

Evening all, me first tonight unless someone beats me, yesterday popped out to GC and brought some plants, lavender and some Argyranthemum, in the hottest part of the day which was good and worth it and had some cake as well - victoria sandwich yum

Have got a question -  brought in sale a Polemonium Brise D' Anjou - no label what conditions does it like sun or shade? - well drained or moister soil?

Then planted out some of the lavenders and helped get a bit of the climbing frame down (scaffold tower), top bit down, hard on my arms 

Today me done a bit of holding the garden furniture down in the sun bit more windy today but nice re planted up one of my fuschias into another pot

Evening all
