Morning all.

Sunny, after a heavy frost.

A day for idle contemplation of how the garden might look, if I did some work, rather than contemplation.

Enjoy yourselves.

What next for rose cuttings

Bigger pots, keep fed and watered and plant out in the Autumn. They sound perfectly healthy. Don't pinch out the tips.

Turned out warm, eventually.

Managed some gentle weeding, although still feeling k#######d after excesses of the weekend.

We don't have green bins here, which is why the orchard has become a bit of a rubbish dump, must get another skip.

Bit more planting this afternoon, desperate for some more room in greenhouse.

It is an Aquilegia, but you cannot tell which one until it flowers and even then most of them are the same species.

Morning all.

Hi all.

Back from a few days in St. Andrews, for the annual gathering of my OHs family [ 22 of us in all ]

gorgeous weather, so my collection of fleeces and Gortex was not needed.

Spent a few hours in my BILs new garden, he has not gardened before, but is very keen. I was able to point out what he already had, give him a few planting suggestions, plus gave him a lot of plants that I had spare.

Lovely to hear your good news fidget and am pleased the service for your Dad went well Dove.

Hope everyone is well, I am off for a lie down having drunk far too much in the last few days.

They like lots of moisture, sometimes they are actually grown as pond plants. Not all species are reliably hardy, so may need to be brought in to a frost free location over winter.

Hi Claire, it's Trillium angustipetalum, I think.

Well that was a mistake. Went up to the GC, to get some Iris chrysographies for the boggy bed, which they had ordered for me and the whole of Sheffield seemed to be in there. It was like the supermarket, with trollies blocking al the aisles.

Not pleasant, I now remember why I buy most stuff on line.
