Hi BM.

Yes I got the car, an Audi A1, 6 months old. I am trying to get to love it, but at the moment miss the old one. Must remind myself, it is only a car, and there are so many other things that are much more important.

Morning all.


Not been posting for a few days, have been going through one of my feeling a bit of a waste of space moods. Decided I need to pull myself together and get gardening.

Have not read what's been going on, so I hope you are all well.

Camera Corner

 Some pictures taken in the wild bit of the garden yesterday. I have never tried photographing birds before, as I thought with my fairly basic camera, I would not be able to capture them.

However with some food and a bit of patience, plus deleting about 100 of the photos taken, I got a few that I think are ok.

Afternoon all.

Magic, morning in garden, just pottering around, doing jobs as I found them. Did nothing on my list that's for sure.

Garden is looking colourful at the moment, with Snowdrops, crocus and Aconites flowering their socks off. I have lined one of the paths with pots of Irises, and they look good to.

Going to have lunch outside and then decide if I feel like carrying on.

Lovely to see you Sunflower lady.

Snap! Saw a buff tailed bumble bee collecting pollen from my dwarf Irises.

Afternoon all.

Nice to see you Stacey, hope all is well.

Very busy morning in garden, thought about taking one of my fleeces off, but then thought better of it.

Just about to put in an order with Crocus, now I have cleared some space in the greenhouse.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Busy morning. Planted out last years perennial wallflower cuttings, dug up a straggly Hebe and replaced it with a cutting I have been growing on for a couple of years.

Also divided a large clump of Persicaria Red Dragon, and positioned the divided parts in a bed next to the pond. Think they will look lovely next to a clump of Phalaris arundinacea.

Finally a bit more weeding and pruning, and I am ready for a lie down.

The key as Verdun says, is repotting frequently. Small plants in large pots do not do well.

If I am going to leave some in pots, I make sure that the compost in the final potting on, is rich and moisture retentive. They are greedy plants [ just like me ]

what are you excited about?

Posted: 06/03/2015 at 09:23

I have a to do list in front of me, my gardening clothes on, and am ready for a day in the garden [ well at least a couple of hours ]

Morning all.

Mild outside.

SM done.

Need to plant out some stuff in greenhouse, if I am to find room for germinating seeds in the house. A bit of juggling required, but that is a sure sign Spring is nearly upon us.

Have a good day everyone, especially the workers.
