Dove, I can relate to 'Hoover' troubles, I got a new all singing all dancing vax last year, it wants its many filters changing half way through every vac session or it lies down and makes a noise with no suck, grrrrr, 

BL, glad you found some nice things in NY and wow to your OH.

Jiggered. In well earned bath with Mr Cider for company, busy afternoon on 'any gardening ' thread. 

Anyone done any gardening today?

I've been out in the drizzle all afternoon!

It started with the wiegela that had grown too much since I was given it last year.  

The the only place for it was by the bottom fence. The first place I tried was too narrow and crowded. So I looked to the right. Decided the poorly clematis had to give up its space. To make a bit more space the unused compost box needed to move as well which meant a few bits n bobs were discarded.

Now to rehouse said poorly clem. No suitable climbing space, so found the deepest pot I could. Oops that had a poorly black sambucus in it, out that came, in went the clem and the pot relocated against a fence.

Now to plant the sambucus in the ground, never did well in a pot anyway.

Gosh it seems like I did a lot more moving than that!

Before that, in went a canna, lilies, sweet peas from a farm (50p each) a bit of tying in.

And this is me that's leaving the garden to settle this year, just concentrating on bedding plants instead, have I done any bedders yet???

Morning all. Sounds like a lot has been going on again, enjoy your ventures

Two replacement fence panels installed yesterday, had to cut back a substantial part of NDNs cotoneaster to be able to get to the post. 

Decided to pack all the garden rubbish (including yesterdays stuff) in the car and head off for the tip today....just got myself organised and the heavens opened! A right old downpour! So that jobs not getting done! Should have planned better - it was dry while I watched GW earlier, even had a walk to the shops in just a t.shirt,  Oh well, I'll have to wait for it to dry out again.

Eucalyptus and other new trees are struggling to stay upright in all this wind. The ash (a few years old) is top heavy, it's trunk not upto much yet. The amelanchier is concentrating her energies (hopefully) on the roots - well there's not much going on up top anyway! Poppies and hordeum jubatum (grass) are no longer majestic, just a flattened washout. Just loving this 'flaming June'
