You too flumpy. The basket planter was sat on the pavement outside our charity shop for £3.99 . I removed the cotton lining from it and saw its possibilities as a planter at once like the hampers i get every Xmas full of food which I plant up. It is another lovely sunny day in Bristol so i expect to get quite a bit of work done in the garden. Temperature forecast is 14 degrees just right for hard work, not too hot. The tender plants I put out yesterday are fine in their sheltered spot so may give them a few more companions today. If I have any young and fit visitors they can carry out a few heavy ones for me. I have some scented pelargoniums that are four feet high and in big pots!
I got fed up weeding so have started to get the tender subjects out onto a sheltered part of the drive to make room in the conservatory for the tomatoes.

Oh I have been beheaded - ah well it was an old picture anyway but it had the Lord Mayor and his Lady either side of me! I have no idea how to replace my avatar.
Yes Runnybeak my hellebores are still flowering. They have been delighting me since November last year.
Lilacs that are perfuming my street.
Thank you plant pauper. Yes I have that choisya too. It is a very good plant. I have a tray of Sweet William plants needing planted out today which I grew from seed. My pinks are sending up flower spikes now too. So glad you are enjoying my ramblings and pictures. Hopefully you have the answer to my mistakes. I saw the musical Oklahoma many years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the rousing music.
Cooler this morning at only 8 degrees but forecast to be a dry fine day so all systems go up the garden. When I open my front door the smell of lilac hits me as I have a large white one in my front garden, a pale purple one on the right in the neighbour's garden and a deep purple one on the laft in that neighbour's garden all covered in blossom. I must snap them later. I have been out to my new plants whih I shut up in the cold frame for the night fearing frost. They are all fine.
Been having fun with my camera - almost the last tulip, lots of flowers on the male holly bush, flowers on my rare Himalayan yellow poppy,Hyomecon japonicum among others. Heucheras are looking especially good and the azaleas about to dazzle.
