Hello all, OOOO cake Dove that is my favourite cake can I have a bit please?

Been and done 2hours weeding at station, ground bit solid still but we managed to find the garden under the jungle, cleared a lot and filled our compost area  - I must say the leaves on the rosa glauca are a lovely colour thanks Fidgetbones and the lychnis coronaria looks good one white and one pink so far third to go 

got too knackered later so rested and watched lost in space on TV

Dove that plant is planted near the pond here (sweet Kate) so nice and bright

Hello forkers

Well what a lot of digging I have done ended up uncovering a large hole with lots of lime bricks in under ground was about 1/2 metre deep thought maybe there was a lime kilm there once - not sure though

took some pics - ended up filling it in only want to plant in top area hope it will be fine for the plants

when I was planting my apple tree right near by the area a year before last I had to dig out loads of lime bricks right where I wanted the tree to be - so must have been something with all those bricks

Planted out a few phlox and hebe from Woody plant sale and a large stipa gigantea which I got from Stansted garden show - so Verdun will need advise for what to do with it in winter/ spring re cutting it or not? 

Found a tin of metal paint in the garrage pinched a bit as dad's, but he has had it a long time - painted old bbq so now dark green not rusty will be used for a bird water table/bath

Fidgebones it is all knackering this digging mallarky, me prepared area for plants so that will be more digging yet to do
