First session over and in for coffee. I picked a bowl of strawberries, repotted four pepper plants, planted 15 sweet peas up their wigwam, side shooted (shot?) tied up to their bamboo poles, fed and watered 14 of Mr. Fothergill 's 56 tomato plants, planted two more shrubs and a nice Helenium in my new Jubilee border, weeded another couple of yards of the limestone path, If I do as much in each of the following three sessions today I will be very pleased. The Lysimachias (nummularia and punctata and one I had given me at the BOT Garden which has lost its label are all in flower and the Lychnis coronaria, chalcydonica are nearly there. Eupatorium and Lithrum doing well too. My spring planted Sweetheart strawberries from Mr. Fothergill have beaten their Berryquick plants to ripe strawberry. I did feel for all you Scottish gardeners yesterday,yarrow2. We were very lucky in Bristol. flumpy 1 I do not feel like taking photographs right now after the 2 and a half hour session being a model for the professional photographer on Thursday! We'll see how much energy is left. I am taking a FB friend from Cheltenham round the Bot. garden next Thursday so you may have some stunning pics from there.
