Evening everyone,
Gardengirl - we had pancakes tonight as well, left over mix from Yorkshire puddings, with banana and choc spread, mmmmm. Had a pasta bake gammony thingy first which was also nice.
Kef and fidget, feeling a bit green with envy, would have loved to go back and see fidgets garden, I can just imagine instead.
Garden should look reasonable for the 'do' at the weekend, fingers crossed. Always more difficult to impress non gadeners, I love the plants and flowers but many people just see the ' bigger picture' / garden as a whole, which I tend to overlook most of the time and never get right when im planning!
How did the interview go panda?
Have a good evening all.

Well done getting an interview Clarii hope it goes well, keep the bills paid until the dream arrives.
Got me thinking about agapanthus now...have avoided as expensive and seem a bit unreliable/difficult....
Got lots of 'bitty' jobs to do today, list has been made so hopefully won't forget anything.
Tomorrow is an early start with sons 7am appt, then nice work, finish early to go to school for award ceremony with fingers crossed as son nominated for one.

OL my lavertera has a few flowers but had a bit of a trim and tie up today as lots of branches too heavy and had broken off.
Lily hydrangea panawotsit is stilll just the one stick but has several flower beads trying to show willing as well.
Dove , when do vib and Clem freckles normally flower?
Still got the odd kaffir lily in flower.
Lucifer looks magestic ok so I've spelt it wrong, and other crocosmias are showing signs as well ( hope they aren't too early).
Have also been impressed with scabiosa which started off naff but now its got going its doing really well.
Oh, it was good to get in the garden this weekend, I've missed it recently, so tricky to make time sometimes.

Sure I've seen that white flower somewhere fidget...hoping I will be one of the ones saying " oh yes of course! I knew that!" when its name is revealed.
BL lovely news.
Escaping from that rubbish on tv...
garden looking tidier but no where near as stylish as I planned :S
Hodeum grass is shimmering nicely now. Cosmos is at least 4' tall ( thanks fb) another is like a big fat bush, all flowering well.
philadelphus has about finished so that will need tackling soon.
Laurel and buddleia had another chop of the nuisance low leaves and branches.

Chick, my Ernest Markham isn't looking good. Didn't know much about clems when I first got it ( not that I know that much more now), planted too close to the apple tree I wanted it to climb up I think, so will be difficult to move so I'll leave it a couple of years and see how it copes.

Phew! What a day. HW all morning garden all afternoon.
I have hoed every available inch, chopped , pruned, moved and mowed - only set out to tidy up as having a bit of a do next weekend and no time. Still to hide empty pots, sweep and weed paths, wash tables and chairs etc.
Verdun, hope yr mums up and running soon, or at least well enough to come home.
Stacey, glad you had a good day even if a bit disappointed.
chicky, which free clematis did you get? Was it an offer with the delphs?
Panda, my sweet peas are less than a foot and no flowers, one that came from last year is tall and has 3-4 flowers.
