I may be wrong, but I thought that they were not hardy.

Steamy here. Sweating like a pig, which is a ridiculous phrase, as pigs don't sweat [ actually refers to the smelting of pig iron ]

Divided 4 large clumps of Asters, made 16 plants, which have now created another sinuous line through a border.

GW magazine has arrived, so afternoon outside reading I think. Is it too early for a little snifter?

Morning all.

Sunny again, but last day I believe.

Another day of moving and dividing, trying to create sinusoidal waves, throughout one border. [ pretentious moi ! ]

Also need some sea weed feed, to try and resurrect my box blobs, who knows what else I may return with?

Low Growing plants

I think some of Verduns choices are good, but try not to use too many different types. 2 or 3 plants repeated will look much better.

Yes, landgirl is right, I have just been to check in my woodland and there are 100s there.

Just in for a spot of lunch and a little respite from the sun, who would of thought I would be saying that in April?

Morning of dividing and moving, trying to get repeating patterns in one of the borders.

Morning all.

Wall to wall sunshine again, this really is fantastic weather, things seem to be growing as I look at them.

Today must be a day of action, rather than observing.

Evening all.

Been a lovely day here.

If beautiful gardens were achieved by standing and staring at them, then mine would probably be the "Carling" of the gardening world.

Poldark I am not, but I did briefly have my top off when doing some greenhouse stuff, it was like an oven in there.

Off to cook tea, have a lovely evening. 

fritillary flowers

Lilly beetles love Fritillaries, often find them on mine.

Was going to talk about the garden, but it seems almost frivolous in view of Verdun's story. These are sad times we are living in.
