Great pictures busy lizzie, looks idyllic. I've grown some violas here but only in pots. I did try a while ago to put some young ones out but they were eaten overnight. Might be worth giving it a go with some more established plants

That sounds like a lot work fred


Today I feel so happy....

Good news on the impending invasion  I have a bed that is a bit tricky to plant in as it's damp, partially shaded and heavy soil so far they seem to be doing well in there, lovely splashes of blue.

I can relate to indesciveness as to where to things should go, I can spend quite a while positioning pots all over the beds before they finally go in. Once they are in I usually think I could do with more of them. I always plant in odd numbers though. I do a lot of looking and pointing in the garden, it's amazing how time goes

Nothing done today apart form tucking everything in from the rain


Plant ID please

I grew some forget me nots from seed last year and they are looking lovely,  got a few more on the go. I'm hoping that they live up to their reputation of self seeding here


Can anyone help identify my fledging perennials...

Spent a lovely afternoon out, not done a lot ...generally admiring everything in the sun. Agapanthos planted out and also a Lupin cutting, took it from a lovely purple one 7 weeks ago so now got another one

Moved a lot of stuff about and made more space in the frames
