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

My strawberries not always ripen at this time but they normally have them on the tennis on TV and wanted to see if the ones in the garden would be ready then few were

GG -  I look into a local echo and found an add to help litter pick and gardening - gardening was more the interest so went along and helped but then managed to get gardening on the closer station even though other station close,nice to make local area nicer, there are mainly plants that look after them self at station but not all - need to do more in in garden here back and front bit at a time more tricky in heat wave

Bev I watch Big Brother as well secret house interesting and luxury
