KEF, you got 2 of one special type so thats 8... Drat OH calling, Crimson FIelds starting ep 1 on catchup...

Lily, my hydrangea P.  is also a dead stick, but not given up entirely, still green to the scratch test! it's now been swamped by an aquilegia so may not get to see much sunlight!

Sinks will plant up nicely OL. yep, another envious one here.

Now just to let you all know - I counted 8 not 7 plants that KEF bought!  I got half as many (and moaned a lot about money holding me back), but got two fab freebies courtesy of jardin a la kef. Gunnera which I've done my best to make a moist place for, planted in a shower curtain (don't ask!), so excited about it. And also some Chinese lanterns, physalis, so looking forward to them as well. 

OH put new fence post in,(wind damage) only trampling one tiny shoot, so not bad. I had the job of painting - don't think I'll get that job again!

Lots of other bits n bobs done as well.

Potties pots from last year Lily,(think before you joined us), they were magnificent. Could just see her using a stand like panda's in her pot garden too.

BGT, of course, watching ATM, well it's on anyway.

Fingers and chairs, orchids and purchases, sinks and jumpers, shoes trotting by again, onesies and hangovers, slugs n baths, not to mention bottom bites and discounts.

Thank goodness for PDs tulips is all I can say!

 BTW not sure what BGT is.

I bet he's had a fab time OL and will be secretly pleased to see you (but not till his mates have gone )

Right answers to quiz, although I'm sure you could have got there with a bit of googling..

1.Hemerocallis crimson pirate, 2. Dahlia weston pirate .

Off to Wentworth Woodhouse tomorrow if anyone wants to meet up. Theres a thingy going on, basically plant sales, went last year and was very impressed, unusual varieties, very keen and knowledgeable people around.

Let me or KEF know if you want to say 'hi', will make sure I bring you all a 'virtual gift' back 

3rd edit and can't make link work sorry.
