Busy with a bit of Daffodil Porn, time to buy bulbs for Mother's Day. Still fancy pink ones! Best website I've found for pink daffs so far is

Hi all. Not been around here much lately (again, life gets in the way).

Had a good day today. Went to plant sale at Sheffield Botanical Gardens. Came away £12 lighter with a heuchera peach flambé, phlox Natasha, perovskia blue spire and anemone whirlwind. Nowhere to put them though!. And no trees for sale, which I'd kinda hoped for, so will have to wait until they come in at GC.

I've been trying to dig out or divide a phormium (gold variegated type), but it is IMPOSSIBLE! So will have to but a new one for the 'ideal spot', and let the big one stay where it is.

Hope all of you are well and happy.

Some 'shout out loud' nasturtiums.

Cosmos (star all year) still going strong keeping that summer feeling.

The dianthus by the path is happily doing it's thing and sweet peas training over the rope but not quite right, will try again next year.

That fall.sounds nasty dove, mend quickly.
Got through lots of mini jobs today, running around on errands, paper/computer stuff etc
Every intention of going out for a walk but ran out of time so instead sat with feet up in garden waiting for son and mum.
Liriodendron (my new tree nit the newish forumer!) has leaves turning brown from edges then to centre, hoping its autumn and not sinister but if it is i have the receipt.
Going to sheff botanical gardens on Sunday in another 'tree search' , still a bit early but I'll enjoy it anyway and the weather should be better than last time i went (boggy and muddy upto your knees!).

chicky - no patience with hassle of compost, supposedly nothing to it, my a###!
G girl - sis bought house cos had allotments at the bottom of them! Honestly, looked for garden and land before the house! For a few years she shared half of a different one a few doors down but eventually persuaded the owner of the one joining the back of her garden to let her have it. So now has a full one right at the end of her gorgeous garden! Hope that makes sense!
