Ive cleared (started to) another area under a buddleia (just a trunk at the moment, waiting to get going!)and a laural (now half the size it was before! It'll be a bit shady, i havent decide whats going there yet but want it easy maintenance for a change!

Pic might follow, might not!

Loving my pure white camellia, first flower today ( sorry pictures playing up)

Another for your imagination - my lovely Boules Mauve.

Thanks Chicky, hope you are well and enjoying your garden.

Having awful problems uploading pictures!

All the clippings are now on the borders or almost in the compost bin.

Hoping my plan looks great in a few more years - white rhododendron, white miniature weeping cherry and 18 month old amelanchier all with a carpet of blues and purples.

Dove - there's a lot more much needed light under the conifers now. The laurels have been massacred but look good for it and thought they might as well do the buddleias (never could spell that!) for me too. But money ran out for a good prune of the apple trees so just a clip here n there. The chaps did a much better job than last time I let anyone loose on my trees!!

The afternoon didn't go as planned ( does it ever?) so once again limited gardening substituted with errand after errand. Off Thursday so may get some more done then fingers crossed.

Wonky - love the bench, remember your garden before you started but was about the time I stopped posting regularly (well obsessively if I'm honest! But nice to pop back now n then to see how you are all doing). 

It is a weed isn't it?

Hello all! Hope you have all had a great winter and today is my first attack  the garden! Loving it again. Had lots of tree work done last month which has left me with 4 builders bags of mulch to use! Some bits and bobs are coming through but not a great deal so far. Struggling with remembering what's what - a first for me, I have always know the name of every plant in my garden! oh well it's fuller now so the memory needs to expand to accomodate all the names. Also had a bit of a is it isn't it weed moment ( on another thread). Going back to the garden for half an hour then will have lunch and look for some garden photos on here to make me jealous.

Just dug loads of single bits of this out, all over the place.

But then came across it as a huge clump so thought Id better double check with you guys that it is in fact a weed and not something Ive planted? 

Thank you.
