Morning all.

Must get on soon- my bedroom looks like a bomb has hit it but I'd always rather be outside than in. As I've been away quite a bit in the last month I have 3 cases all partly unpacked. I am determined to unpack them all, then put away everything that doesn't go straight intoa case to take for my week away. Then I'll at least come back to some order.

Everyone seems to have a busy day planned.

I'll put some pics on from last summer foryou Lily- everything I grow is in pots- but Ilove plants so much that I have quite afew pots in a very smallgarden.

 The bottom left corner.

 Here is my only bit of real garden in front of my living room window.

 Viewed from other side.

 The front

 Along left side of garden

 The right side down to gate

 View down garden from top right

 Upthe side passage with what were my new ferns- only thing that would grow down there


My phone has broken so I think that I've lost the pics I've taken in last few months but used sons phone to take some pics yesterday. The daffs are a bit past their best now but I love this combination every spring.

I love the plant stand panda, a nice way to display plants.

Fairy you are super woman- you make me feel very lazy- all I've done is potter as always. Put acouple of new fuchsia in- taking one to my daughter when I return to her on Monday.

Jealous of peoples purchases this weekend. Stacey you got loads.

Sorry to have to admit that I'm ready for a bit of BGT tonight

I have still been unable to get any cuttings to take- am I too late to try now for a twisted standard this year?

Jeannie I'm jealous- I just can't get on with taking Fuchsia cuttings. I really don't know why as so many other people seem to manage. I tried growing fuchsia standards last year but think I may have failed as I took them in during the winter but treated them like the other fuchsias and so all the leaves dropped. +I now think I should have kept them watered and so growing over the winter- I'll see if I can find the thread on growing fuchsia standards

Great pics Jac.

I got a new ( well old) belfast sink at the end of last summer and need some inspiration as to what to plant up in it. I'll be delighted if it turns out as good as yours.
