We seem to have a bit of Verdun's weather here, must be because he's my new favourite another bright sunny day. But the ground had a lovely good soaking overnight.
BL - sorry about the echinacea but you can't change the facts
Dove -may the sun will be with you soon
Fairy - good deal you got at Homebase, are they a reasonable size?
KEF - enjoy Chessie, used to work there, loved it but did have a mishap one lunchtime in town when my 'holdups' didn't! If you have trouble filling your skip I can help
W.song, alliums are one of my favourites too, I got some 'green hairy' seed from an open garden last year but not sure how they are doing really, will update if/when.
Chicky, glad your sweetpeas survived the night, mine (if that's what they are) are still pathetic spriggy things. But the sunflowers (aka sweet peas ) are doing well.
Lily - knew I'd missed something to reply to you yesterday, the feather bed was formerly known as the grasses bed but as it has developed it is probably better to rename it! The idea is to have swishy soft tactile plants next to a path where you can run your fingers through when passing. ATM all that's in it are a grass I already had which I've split (we think it's called Stipa arundinacea) and some fennel (some verbena bonariensis cuttings which aren't doing well).
PD - enjoy your walk
Phew - is that everyone? I'd be a first for me if it is!
