Hello all

Been a nice bright and sunny (morning) but dry all day so I was out planting up a lot of pansy's in front garden and an anemone and clearing lots of seedlings from the path and re planting in different areas in the front garden put in bulbs too, alliums few different ones

Later I tried to sort out my white border by planting bulbs but first I had to tackle the spreading daisy's so cut them down and spent a long time digging them out, they are all put in pots now including spare roots - just hope I got all the roots out the ground if not they will come back

Bulbs got planted white tulips fringed swan wings, narcissi thalia and narcissi jonquilla pueblo - both white and I planted some of my wallflower and I was rough on a plant I got in gc in the sale a bit back split it up a lot a white daisy which was planted

KEF nice Hebe my next door neighbour has that colour one - I have a pink one like that and lots of other ones with small flowers in the garden and cuttings I have took in plant pots

Fruitcake a pram would do the trick but I would make it not look like a pram

How about something like this from Google search

The only thing I have is the black and yellow trolley below one of those fold up ones
