Made the most of the glorious weather,put out runner and french beans,so got a bit more room in the greenhse for yet more potting up.

Washed down the garden furniture in the hope of sitting on it tomorrow.

Today I feel so happy....

Totally agree Palaisglde,it seems that once the first speed bump has appeared they breed,until the whole road becomes like some sort of fairground ride.

I also hate thse speed controlling measures  (very popular round here)  where they send the cars  ( in single file so you have to keep giving way  )   in a series of "S" bends. Why..........people who are going to speed go straight across them anyway.

Punkdoc and Fairygirl thanks for the suggestions for a grass to brighten up a bed,I will look out for them both,next time I am in GC,the area is shade in morning and some sun in the afternoon,I think the size that you say Fairygirl for 3 of them would be ideal,Have been caught out before with a grass that took everything over,I don,t want anthing too invasive..

What a gloriuos day,just come in from garden,after planting out french beans/runner beans and sorting out my herb bed.Most of the herbs ae in a tatty old wheel barrow,given a new lease of life with a coat of hammerite paint,and lined with an old bin bag with holes in.Have it just outside the kitchen window ,so in summer! can smell them when the window is open

Andy.great pics of your patio,especially like your planter,can,t quite see whats planted in it

The problem is Verdun,I am inspired by Chelsea to buy masses of new plants,it is a question of whittling the list down,.........

I would like some new grasses ,I have an area of grit garden,which is only rock,fern and grasses,I could do with a grass that is bright yellow/green to go in one of the corners ,just to lift it a bit.I did notice one on Chelsea this week but did,nt get the name down quick enough.
