Beautiful photos. Loving foxgloves, aliums galore, aliums with red broom, gorgeous tidy gardens, perfect blooms, acer corner, close ups and long shots! Feeling envious but may get some of my garden posted anyway.

Is this a tree sapling?

Thanks Dove, I've pulled it! 

Found the culprit - Here is its mummy. Which works well as we want to take the conifers down and were worried about being overlooked - job done! It's in next doors garden but poking through our fence too.

Dove - that looks like a fine contraption! Speedy recovery.

BusyL - are you a new grandma? congrats. x

Had a great day out to butterfly and exotic animal place with son, has changed so much in recent years. Managed to get talked into joining RSPB as well so adventures abound.

Measured out for summer house and have actually agreed the size with OH so WONT be having it overtaking the garden after all! Phew! 

Off into the garden now to see what bits I can fit in around cooking a lamb dinner.

Gardened nearly all day in the glorious rain! Thought I'd like a new shape around the lawn, some sort of feature. A summer house would do fine! reshape the ławn, replant, brilliant. OH informed, oh dear! Now we need something the size of the titanic to house a gym! All I want is somwhere to sit, sip wine, chill and snuggle up BUT mainly just a new planting oportunity!

Ive just moved my Salic flamingo (as a standard so on a graft).

I chopped off a main root thinking it was from an old tree!

Can anyone let me know how tough they are and is it likely to survive? 


Flame weed killer

Just got a small flame weed killer, saw Momnty using one on GW so thought I'd give it a go. I seem to think he mowed the paths first then used the flame on the cracks reaching the roots better. I'm going to try it on full weeds tonight and might try the mow first technique tomorrow. Looks like good fun!
