How do you all know so much

Posted: 16/04/2014 at 22:44

It's a passion. I look back at posts I made 18 months ago and think to myself how much of a novice gardener I was.

The amount I have learned in such a small space of time fascinates myself.

If you are truly passionate about something you will make it your duty to learn more and more about that subject.

It applies to anything in life, this is why technology has advanced so much over recent years.

Struggling azeleas

I think Morning Sun is quite bad for azaleas. What water are you watering it with? Is it from the tap?

Azaleas like to be watered with rain water. Tap water is too hard.

Gorgeous again here in South Wales today.

Planted out the last of my Delphiniums and some Gladioli's

Only downside is I have to head off to work soon

Butterfly sightings 2014

Today I saw a Speckled Wood in my Garden then whilst having tea at the Garden Centre I saw a couple of Clouded Yellows.

Both butterflies I have never seen before so this was wonderful
