Good for you , Liz.  Maybe joining you . flippin football. Will have a little nose about on here me-thinks.

Whenever Dean's about , I can't stop thinking of his Jock- Box.

Keep positive Ben - I'm a firm believer in the power of positive thinking. (Not going to mention Noetic science Geoff ) Whoops - I have !

Doesn't it feel good when you've had a productive day in the garden.

I'm with Bunny - Johnson's blue  Mainly because they are a bee magnet. I've got some pink ones on the go at the mo but they aren't named - £ Land specials . Will post picks when they flower . Maybe an expert will identify them for me.

Afties / Evening  Very productive day and only just come in . 2 more borders to go and I'll nearly be sorted. Dogs tooth violets looking well - all through so just top dressed the pots and had a good weed and hoe. May do some more seeds tonight or may not. Didn't take Gary's advice so I'm aching everywhere so going to immerse myself with my friend Mr Radox.

So sorry about puss but sometimes it's the kindest thing. One of ours was 18 when it happened to us but we have some happy memories .

I've got nothing to bring to the picnic  Far too nice to go shopping so have got the begging bowl out  Sharies ?

Morning Glyn and Gary, Back to it today  No frost here and the beginning of a lovely day.

Starting some more seeds off today and hopefully weeding the rockery.

It seems like ages since we had the R word - my supplies are running a bit low but have got enough for my carnivorous plants for now.

Have a happy gardening day , forkers.

 Morning all. Stiff legs today. Must be all that walking around yesterday . Feel the need for a very large coffee. Need to get motivated.

Watched the meteor programme last night - fascinating stuff . Glad Gary mentioned it and then Oh and son had political debate.

At that point , I went to bed.

Afternoon forkers   Well didn't manage to wriggle out of it so no gardening done again Bumble bee border still the same as last week but plan to have a good bash this week. Sort of enjoyed Liverpool - the Liver Buildings and the waterfront. A lot has changed since I last visited but a lot busier than I expected. To be honest not somewhere I would choose to go for a day out but it's done now. Son enjoyed himself which was the main reason we went.

Thr pictures of everyone's gardens look lovely ,  Not taking any photos of mine yet until it looks a bit better.

If you are still around, Chris - have the taccas come yet ? Still waiting for mine.
