Hello sorry didn't post on my return from Busylizzies.

Have been so busy and  the garden to sort out as well!

I had a lovely time and we all worked very hard to get it 'show' perfect

Was frisked at airport in France and had case searched at airport in England!!

Already a nervous traveler, next trip will be terrified!!

I see a lot of you still have sticky label syndrome - I have to stop for a while as there are so many plants waiting to go in. While i was away a long awaited white echinops arrived. Thankfully it survived OH!!!

Today I have planted up the raised bed for cut flowers, yesterday I finished planting up a veggie raised bed - 2 more to go1

Ceanothus for bees/butterflies?

My ceanothus Concha was, in fact still is, buzzing with bees.

Looks spectacular as well.

Just back from taking Lizzie to big GC, afternoon tea consumed, plants attached to me and seeds to Lizzie 

BIG NEWS - have been given the go ahead today to fly to France (here was going to be a jumping smiley but all I got was a squashed tomato)

Good to see everyone has managed with the weather.

Just hope it cheers up for Friday when we go to the Show

Busy busy getting ready for Busy Lizzie

Just about as tidy as it will ever get 

OH now making a casserole, so dinner will be ready whatever time we get home - in this wind could well be delays!

Went into garden to tie up a bending spike and , eek, don't think I want to go out again!!

Back when we can, quite a schedule sorted out for Lizzie

Runny should have come and knocked on my door = only live couple of miles away.

Could have helped me attempting to plant some tomatoes

Love Cromer  l

Lily Pilly how worrying for you and for them - come on do the Chinese really need to keep the pets.

DD will look forward to meeting you, especially with cake, unless my hostess has plans - have a feeling it's garden sorting though, packed my G-gloves already 

Trying to make a list (requested) of what OH needs to do in the garden. Finding it very hard as what I would do automatically he would not think of (scratching head instructions)

Oh, just thought of something else - back in a bit
