Good Morning, dull here and 15c, but won't be greedy we had sun most of yesterday, so Dove and Lily can have some today.

Unusual pot Lily, would look good in my garden.

Soz to hear about plants Pdoc, it was a bad frost, I even fleeced my spud sacks. 

MrsGarden hope your shoulders feel better today, hate to think they are too sore to carry new plants  

OL pleased that your team survived, our music in the garden yesterday was footie on radio

Hope all have a good day, outings, events, meals.

Glorious here, still have shorts & vest on ( not thermal).

Moved a Callistemon splendis, looked dead after winter 2 yrs ago came back with vigour. Likes free draining & neutral to acid, so been in my Eric  bed.  Nearly "dead" the B has nearly killed OH digging it out, grafter on job and a right root ball, thought apple tree would fall down. I dug hole to plant in and that was hard enough, it was only moving 5'. Me thinks tougher than they say apparantly only HH.   Bed was well wet & even though eric dug in over years roots in clay.  Lot of root lost so it's a case of if it lives it lives.

Time to go cook. No need for fire dept' tonight Archie, only Madras

Romantica doccos welcome homos  hope you've had brill time, did worry about you and falling out of a gondola.
