That's real gardening fidget . Maybe I will follow your example.  I guess you get the odd different shade of blue...??

Cordless mowers

Bosch is better.  40 mins and full charge again in less than an hour.  Batteries last for 3 or more years.  

Horses for courses KT53.  If I had huge areas of grass I would use a petrol mower but, for those thinking green, petrol is much noisier. For me here, cordless is best

Santolina?  artemisia powys castle?  winter heathers?  Heucheras and festucas?  Euonymous emerald n gold?  Berberis atro nana?  Pittosporum tom thumb? Lonicera nitida Baggesons Gold DWARF variety (sorry, name escapes me for now)?  Ferns? Perovskia LITTLE spire, dwarfer version of well known variety? Hemerocallis, esp variegated Golden Zebra?  Dwarf hebes!    However, check out Diosma Sunset Gold...this is a beauty.  Lovely "moving" foliage, delightful pink/white flowers right now, evergreen and requires little attention

Bought 4 variegated pelargoniums this morning....not for me; already have them.  Good quality, good size amd good price at (£2 each). However, I said " I'll pay for 2 and you can gIve me 2 for free" .  hence 4 for 2 !     Bit of cheek always pays 

sun has now appeared.  Looking good now

You do better than I do fidget.  

To be honest I'm not really great with seeds....too huge respect to all those who do that. 

However, do you see self sown seedlings?  I may just do that too
