I'm here GG, morning, just dropped in for a catch up. Feeling a bit tired, didn't sleep too well, hot and sticky and aching shoulders. Strange dreams too.

Doesn't look,like much in the way of rain here today, but will be for mostnofnthe day tomorrow, so need to get out into the garden today.

Dove, hope the anti-cat plan works, lots of the around here. I cut some holly branches the other day and have left them othe bare soil. Also use this wire hanging baskets upside down. They work quite well with seedlings.

How do you keep geranium sanguineum flowering

Cut lots of mine back this weekend. I usually end up pulling machorrizums out as they spread so fast. Levae the seed heads on as they are pretty.

when to plant rose in garden

Lots of my roses grow in pots. I would say of it's in a pot, put it in the ground as long as it isn't too hot Bare root roses are a different matter. I'm afraid I don't always obey the rules though

I sort of hate watching the animal rescue programmes because of what people do to their animals, some horrible images sometimes, but always nice when they recover and go to a good home. Mine was dumped by someone and ended up in our back garden, inevitably I took him in.

You are right there BB, my mum had it in her garden and it went everywhere. Funnily enough though I had trouble getting it to down in my garden. I saw the oxalis in the phot in my loc GC the other day, it is very pretty with dark pink/red, don't think it is as invasive as the one. I can never keep it over the winter.

Me too Tina, although getting up is getting easier. Have only had 3 classes though, and only 3 in the class. Concentrating on getting the moves right, can't think about breathing and holding right muscles in too!

A nice bath tonigh Matty, with some lavender and some marjoram oil. Might help stop the aching tomorrow. I'm constantly going over on my ankle and going up and down the steps in the garden, worry I will come a cropper.  You're Dove, balance not the same as it used to be. I have started Pilates to see if it will help.

Oops that morning, sounds like I am ignoring everyone but Verdun Good morning all! Well actually, afternoon, I got up late.

Morning, Verdun, I always feel guilty when I get rid of plants even when I don't like them.  Pulled out a load of geraniums yesterday and felt really bad doing it.

Mouse drama here this more, well actually it was a shrew, as we found out later. Rockycat brought it in in the early hours and it escaped under he wardrobe. He caught it again and brought it downstairs and we managed to rescue it and release it into the field. Phew, thought we were going to have move the wardrobe which would have been a mammoth task.

Have a good day all.
