Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Ha ha that's a lot of crocus Victoria! I was thinking maybe 50, it will be worth it when you see the show in the Spring. They are so small, so look better enmasse. I've been sticking in a lot more than I used to. Bog garden sounds interesting. My ferns have disappeared completley.

I'm pleased I got started on things, I better had as they will still be there in Spring. I like to have cleanish deck to start again

How many more do you have to go Logan?

Hope you are enjoying yourself GWRS, it was Summer when I last visited. I took a boat out to Cauldey Island and they had loads of Fuschia Hedges

Nice one Gardengirl, came along just at the right time. Not much space here for another shed, the one at the bottom of the garden has become a bit of wood store ready for the wood burner

Got some gardening done at long last, daffs and crocus planted. Started reorganising the hot bed, dug out the innula, crocosmia and as much I love it some white sweet rocket. All getting too big for the space.

Planted out some Lavender, hollyhocks and wallflowers, had a lovely time but that's me done. No such thing in my world as too many crocus Victoria.

See original post

  That would be the first place I would go. 

Gardengirl, I am so impressed, very stylish and professional looking. The little stool is very cute and I really like the shade of grey that you used. You've also got a reliable source of free pallets for your shed. Brilliant

Don't forget to alter your clocks

Reminds me of the conversation overheard in the hairdressers - customer was reminded to put her clock back tonight and there'd be 'shorter days' responded by saying, 'Oh, I thought there were 24 hours in every day ......... how many are there going to be now?'

See original post

 That is hilarious and stupid!  and a little worrying!
