Just another though - I'll probably not catch the Chelsea programmes in real time , which programmes will you be watching and which would you recommend I record?

Love your avatar Lyn

Perovskia sounds familiar so I'll keep an eye on it, needs moving really but I've no space anywhere!

Pernod,ouzo, not for me thanks, I'll stick to vino collapse with superIDhero runny! 

Bike ride not too long today, but goodness it's complicted learning to ride a bike properly as an adult  all those gears n brakes n stuff . Anyway OH 

 says I did well 

Plenty of time left for gardening. Retied the apple trees together, I'm trying to get them to meet and form an arch ( ok give it another year n I'll realise it's a stupid idea!). weeded n moved stuff about.

This year my plan is less in the borders and progress onto pots, hmmm should have sown some seeds then! I don't have many tubs n things as always expensive and the plants entice me more...but there are loads of cheap plastic ones in JTF, have already got a few for £1 each and going back for more, so need some ideas.

Anyone done any gardening today?

yvie, what have you planted / going to plant in the pots? Looking for inspiration as I'd better not put anything else in the swamped garden!

First one should be aquickie...did I plant it or sow it last year or is it a weed? (5 of them).




Second I know I planted but no idea what it is...

Finally dug the aquilegias out of the allium bed, wasn't as risky as I thought and I think all the alliums have survived.

Then decided the monarda was spreading far too much in the red bed, so moved to a new bed with a new red hot poker. Found a struggling rudbekia so added that as well. 

Rescued a swamped hemerocalliis, couldn't find a spot for it so it'll have to live in a pot for now.

Most of my garden is swamped at the moment so here comes a new learning curve!

Aching after a morning run (getting good at this fitness lark, well doing it anyway).

Hasnt stopped me in the garden though,  wearily tidied away the spring bulb planters and dragged some others into place (can't go on like this, must have another plan than moving pots every season). Tidied the GH which had become a shed instead! Moved patio furniture.  Sat and enjoyed garden from new bifold doors, whilst nursing a suspected pulled muscle in calf and wondering why that cat thinks it lives here 

OH tells me we are off for another bike ride tomorrow. Yikes! Help!
