I hope every garden that needs it is getting it today. Mine is very damp already but it is dry now and sunny so it looks like one of those on - off days. Better take my umbrella with me . I think i will weed from the paths today, No watering needed except in the conservatory.
Hooray we can edit now! Things just get better and better.
The sun went in and the light was just right for good pictures so i gave my back a rest and went snapping.

It is promising to be another fine day for gardening but rain forecast for this evening which will mean holding off on the watering for me and the waterbutts replenished. Tomorrow is another story however with heavy rain forecast for all day.
I think I overloaded my space. Here are the remainder. The purple freesia is beautiful.
Did a lot of watering then went round the garden taking pictures every time i said AWWW, look at that - to the neighbour's cats who like to follow me around, to the fox whom I stumbled upon napping,. to the birds if all else failed. Good job I am having visitors next weekend.
Forum has been off this morning for a bit. Another brilliant sunny day in Bristol so expect to get a lot of planting done I thought I had lost a ceratostigma but when i emptied it out of its pot there were some little green shoots and some good roots so repotted it in good compost and watered it. Time will tell.
I don't know the answer to that one flumpy. Your rhododendron should have bg fat buds on it right now but the feeding may help them to form and your flowering will be later than mine which look likely to open very soon. Those carnations are beautiful and so is your front garden display. I got a lot of weeding and planting up done today. Whacked now.
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.
