HELLO FORKERS!

I met nutcutlet, Artjak Panda Dove & Snoodle at East Ruston - all lovely. OH was a bit concerned I was going off to meet the white slave traders...

Then he realised they probably wouldn't have me so was ok to go!

Just come in from a session in the garden. Took off my gardening clothes, folded them up on the bed ready to go away, brushed my hair, put my gardening clothes back on again......

Rozanne is brill - flowers from early summer till first frosts - mine (planted last year) are both about 2' tall by 3' spread and absolutely smothered in flowers (& you don't have to dead head it). Also looks good with Ann Folkard scrambling though it.

Don't think you should eat heucheras Yvie....... How about geraniums Rozanne and Patricia for your bed?

Has Panda woken up yet? If so, - that's  a nice tree Panda

Morning everybody - bit chilly & breezy here too. Lawns could do with a trim after all the rain so that's my job for this morning. 

Enjoy BBQ's, trips and picnics - hope the sun shines for you

Beautiful pics Steve & Peat. I love, love, love Scotland. Spent a very happy night in Loch Ranza on a boat a couple of years ago - so beautiful & peaceful - we were the only ones there.

At our previous house we had a really rubbish lawn - some areas were just mud and weeds with the odd bit of grass. I used one of the lawn maintenance companies in the area. They came in once a quarter and sprayed / spread whatever was the most appropriate product for the season / problems at the time. Within 6 months we had a lawn to be proud of - I was very impressed. 

The best bit though was that it was actually cheaper to pay them to come in and do it than to buy the products myself from the GC - and they always turned up when they were supposed to - I would have bought 'spring feed' and maybe not got round to using till August! 

Still had to mow it though....
