Why can't I see any posts from KoalaGirl? People keep referring to them.

Debbie, I Can hardly wait to see the transformation! Some of those paths look useful.

Trellis in progress

Looking west--work in progress, but the path is done


Wild columbines


These are really electric blue-Lithodora Grace Ward


Tree peony flower--in front of the agave, which is making lots of babies.


Love this little geranium--matches my furniture. The foliage is wonderful.

Welcome, Debbie--congratulations on your new garden--it sounds like it has lots of potential. Be sure to take some before pics so that we can appreciate your hard work.

You might want to live with it for awhile before you do anything major. What kind of paths are they?

Do you remember the tree peony I have that has never bloomed for me? Well, it has, and it's yellow. I was hoping for pink, but it was free, so I can't really complain. Gift horse!

Good morning, everyone--we are having a spell of wonderful weather--sorry to hear about your cold, but you were having a warm spell when I was shivering in the rain. The trellises are finally finished and painted, so I can put away my tools for awhile and start working on the soil. Then the planting! That will be the fun part--I have many things in pots that need some ground to live in!

Dean, that looks great! Looking forward to hearing about all your successes after that hard work.

Kate, those flowers look fab! Thanks for posting the photo.

One more side of the tellis to paint, and then I can tie in the poor clematis which has been hacked miserably during the construction process. I have no idea what kind it is. I have also had to sacrifice an ancient woody lavender, but I shall take many cuttings.

Good morning! It's going to be another hot day today--and I will be weeding, feeding, watering and painting. Nary a cloud in the forecast for the next week, and it's time to switch the house to summer mode---and to shade the greenhouse. At last!

Kate, you made me smile with your flower inspection--I probably would have done the same!

David, your garden looks wonderful--lush and green. It has a very serene feeling to it--wonderful textures.

It's the hottest day here so far-and tomorrow will be even warmer. Must water for the first time later on. Still stuck into construction--everything takes longer than you think it will, doesn't it?
