First? Morning all you sleepy heads

Well, I had a walk around the garden. Restaked the new trees, extra support to liquidambar as it was looking more weeping than columnar. GC guy said it was soft as stored somewhere warm before delivered to them so not hardened off properly. Hope it will be ok, if not it'll be getting replaced by GC. Other than that I just looked in despare at plants and came back in :/
Hope you all have a more fruitful garden day.

Morning all.
Hope you'll excuse my lie in but swimming lessons now moved to wed pm not sat am so im celebrating!
Must get jobs done in garden!
Brug needs cuttings taking , in fact I haven't taken any from any plants this year, no seeds collected yet so may be an expensive spring if I dont get my act together.
Hope grass is dry enough to cut.
Amelanchier still to plant, but position at least has been decided.
That's all inbetween wallpaper shopping.
Hugs to spike ( glad they are virtual in case he's wet after his walk)!
Further hugs to all who need them.
Have a good day.

Sister worried about mums memory, but she was the same when dad was in his last few months, she has some health concerns so hoping its just stress.
