Japanese seating area

Posted: 25/06/2017 at 20:57

bOH not keen on screening backdrop or pergola but will work on him, when he's less busy.

Yes, of course, hot tub open for fellow gardeners!!!

Seen a bamboo in local garden centre called Fargesia rufa, or far geisha murielliae, what do you think? in a pot of course.

So for now, this is all the plants Ive got, but no room for seating!

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Posted: 25/06/2017 at 20:48

Moved huge chosia ternata, two year old dwarf flowering cherry and white camellia from the groundd to pots. Fingers crossed, I need to make way for a summer house and there is no room in the garden. However they have filled out the planned Japanese corner nicely. OH has not yet been persuaded to do any work to 'authenticate' it. So plants will have to be enough for now, no pergola, no screening etc. Time yet. 

Also been to garden centre to buy bamboo to make a bee house with son, some bedding plants for a hanging basket he wanted too.

Sounds like theres a musical theme here this morning / last night.

I dont usually sleep well either. Last night was an early night and just amazingly dropping off (I think if I go early I get to sleep better) but shook out of my near slumber by text telling me the news of the day re MIL whos in hospital, all was good. Then tossing and turning until 3 ish. 

Getting through the ironing before doing any gardening. Its a cold wind out there today. OH out on his bike before continuing the decking.

Dead headed absolutely loads of nigella today, and still they will throw seeds everywhere.

Picked up lots of tiny windfall apples and now my back is killing me, but not allowed to moan as OH will be worse as hes been hard at the decking again today. Ive given him a bit of a challenge to accomodate the new willows, he said it was impossible, we almost fell out, we but he's found a way so all is rosey again! Darent tell him all the other plans, he's already frowning at the 'Japanese' corner (I want plants he wants rattan corner sofa).

Have a good evening all.

Lovely gardens and photos everyone. Liri, I love that primula, gorgeous color. Ive also got the pieris katsura, very glossy. Must look back to previous page.

hGlad you're up and about Dove.

Morning coffee done, now just waiting to be summoned for labourer duty and hoping OH finishes replacing the decking this weekend.

Have a good day all.
