What's the star in your garden right now

Posted: 27/08/2013 at 16:44

Today the star is this little fella in my GH. Not great at butterflies but after a moment's googling I'd say it's a Speckled Wood.

funny to imagine some of you in your onesies, oh I mean dungarees, ( smokin im guessing you're not keen on onesies but quite like dungarees?).

I wear worn out clothes and groan when I have to venture out, yet again, to the ice cream van with son to perceived looks of ridicule. My favourite is an all-in-one strapless shorts suit (oh no, just realised that makes it a onesie/dungaree) It has a ridiculous bright purple n orange jungle pattern and was for that reason never worn in the real workd!

Morning all.

Your poor ears Verdun. I can sympathise cos I'm suffering this morning too. Nasty little flying critters to blame. I've been bitten so many times for the last few weeks. Smothered myself various times through the day with insect repellent but the greedy little so n so's still found their way through. Off to find the anti histermines. Any one got other remedies or prevention ideas? (apart from stay indoors).

Fidgetb and gardeng, a secret garden is frustratingly what's missing in my garden, if I could excavate the trampoline there'd be room for that very project. As for sleeping, what's that then? Awake till 3am planning arches along the path. Beauty, well lets not even go there.

Right off to morning thread before I get detention

BL thanks, will try forgetmenots with the tulips. Violas too.

Cut back a huge buddleia today and found a bench. Then set to on a huge lavertera and found a path.

Busy day really but at a nice steady pace so didn't notice. Planted 4-5 things from yesterdays open garden. Not the pulmonaria though, not sure where its going yet.

I tried to latch onto a previous thread about planting potz up in layers but no replies. So back to planA and to ask you guys. Here it is....

i have 3 tubs next to each other. All empty at the moment. I like the idea of bulbs for spring, fushias for late summer (hardy fushias so the tubs last and are not disturbed) I also have some lavender cuttings I could use...

but what can I plant now for...

1) between spring and late summer , and

2). For autumn? Maybe winter ? 


Thanks. Hope you've all had a good day.

I've been round with the spray weed killer on the path, hard work! Next time I thought id get a diluteone but worried it would run into the borders....


Verduns here and no mention of cake yet!
