Happy 18th Chicklet 


Dove I don't do push bikes, fell off one 35 yrs ago on a busy road got my front wheel in a drainage ditch   only my pride was hurt following all the honking and abuse I got..think it was abuse I don't speak Spanish.  I told OH I couldn't ride a bike he then believed me.

Verdun I have foxtail lilies  in a dry bed that gets some sun, it took them about 4 years to decide to put on a show, I'd almost forgotten what they were. 

No sign of my delphiniums or hollyhocks and I have put some pellets just under the surface, I'm not sure when they should start to show here in S.Yorks..ideas anyone? 

I have a peonies that were dug up and after MIL died nearly 20 yrs ago I planted them in the garden, they got dug up 15 yrs ago came with us to this this garden and lived for a year in buckets and now thrive in the garden, one was split and given to SIL and hers thrives. 

Slug..... Or is it ?

I wouldn't dare say what that looks like but not a Cornish vine weevil

Wind and rain here  it was forecast.

Yipee my chillies and peppers and mini aubergine are germinating in the heated propagator. Delphiniums not showing yet I'm keeping them at 15 -18C OH doesn't know that I've put an oil radiator in the dining room and I switch it on overnight   

I like to hear about people's new plants  I'm not buying any more until I have made new flower beds..if I post about any purchases feel free to virtually slap me..

Until a couple of years ago I had only planted trees and shrubs along the boundary borders to provide privacy they are all too close together and I'm removing some each year. I made one eric' bed and remaining shrubs and plants were in containers, I've grown veg from seed for a long time, OH used to joke that the only flower I really liked was cauliflower  Joining the forum was the ruin of me  or the making I have started to sow flower seeds, planted bulbs and succumb to most plants fevers we have had on here, hence I now have 6 hellebores, snowdrops and even some grasses. Plus I've been given plants by Fidget
