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.

Is it panda that's won on the lottery then?
Not very good at this skim reading, note to self keep posting and reading!!!

(Kef, will check pms again later, have replied to original, not sure if you mean there's more.)

Thanks for the update dove.x
love to the lads mums.
Clarii new ventures new opportunities, old s##t out of the window.
Same to lily and what joy to go down the utter idleness route - can you share?

Morning all.
Gosh I've been busy! Managed to do some gardening yesterday after mum told me its looking 'a bit overgrown'!
Not caught up but
has Clarii won on the lottery?
Lily got so peed off at work and handed notice in?
Lots of other stuff happening on here too, but not really read much
Hope everyone and their loved ones are ok. Best wishes if any problems.
In the garden I have chopped back merrily at all sorts to get some 'shape' and order back - just hope I've left enough on so when they die back there is enough on them to give lovely plants next year.
Crap work today but new work is great .
Have a good day all.

Lovely colours Victoria.
Lesley, only second year growing monardas and quite surprised how they have thrived (aka taken over!).

Hugs lily, can't imagine how awful that must be. My son was 6weeks early, opposite now and needs a good nag and shove before he does anything (ah yes just a male thing!).
Hogweed, complete and utter bin envy (and you thought you needed to get out more) garden waste bin at all, sneak it into normal bin.
