Garden Gallery 2014

LesleyK it is a Dicentra. Still has the typical bleeding heart flowers, but with that beautiful lime green foliage, which looks great in the shade.

Fb. I have real problems identifying Meconopsis, they are so promiscuous, and the differences between them often so small. Love your garden, green is the most important colour, and dont forget, a Chelsea garden would look terrible for most of the year.

 A wander round the garden today.

Hi all and good luck Panda.

After a busy weekend in the garden am feeling done in, I did not think 27 was that old.

Today will be a day to contemplate in the garden, rather than do stuff.

Have a good day everyone.

After a cruddy day, came some sunshine

SP93, someone will correct me if I am wrong, but I didnt think you could get yellow sweet peas. If you have then you will make a fortune.

identification needed please.

If not a Sumach, then it is a Sorbaria, which will evelop white flowers, abit like a Buddleas.

Roast beef is always an option, especially in Gods own county.

About to take a beer out to the garden.

Hungry roses?

Roses are very greedy, they probably need feeding at least twice in the season, so I think Obelixx is right.

Hi all. Just in for a spot of lunch and to cool down, its reet hot in my adopted S. Yorks today { I am rally Cornish but dont tell anyone } I have been here 22 years, but that still makes me a tourist!

Lots done, but the more I do the more I find needs doing, its always the same at this time of year.

Off to do a Verdun, dont like where the Cannas are, so need to move them. Luckily they are still in pots.

Enjoy the rest of your day everyone.

Dahlias are very small this year, not ready to  come out of greenhouse.

What a great day. lots done, even if it wasnt things on my list. Time passed without me even noticing, and now have this lovely sense of wellbeing. Its been one of those days where you dont notice any of the bad things about the garden, and you are really pleased with the way everything looks.

Watching 12 years a slave on tele. tonight, with a bottle of wine, might even eat something.

Have a good one everybody.

Hi all. Dry and warm, but no sun.

I have started today with a real sense of purpose, running around like a blue a***d fly, doing half a job then moving on to the next, I am so disorganised. Get the list out, dont like those jobs, start a new list!

Chicky I so agree with you, stop, look and enjoy, then repeat.

Have a great day,
