Well, the rains has arrived.  Been humid and very warm. ,got my propagated verbena rigida plants in.  Think they associate well with geum totally tangerine, anemone wild swan as well as nestling in nicely between 2 hellebores

Hello gardeningoddess and welcome.

Acid soil. Moist.  Dwarf rhododendrons for something different.  Expensive though

I would go for euonymous Emerald n Gold.  I grow them as rounded specimens and as part of a mixed hedge.  Beautiful bright creamy yellow in spring and early summer and turning yellow and green as summer progresses.  Pink tinges in winter.  Easy to shape and control.  I love them.

Berberis atro pur nana is a deciduous purple,,prickly hedge that looks spectacular in the growing season.  Pittosporum Tom Thumb is evergreen and purple and makes a good low hedge too

Another clue to our identity folks.

Acronyms as to how we view life, the garden and people

Mine may well be IIDJI.  Clue.  Impatience.  Impulsiveness.  Forcing the issue.

Prize for correct answer.  It's a hard one.

Hello forkers

Looking good so far.  Bright,,dry warm amd the promise of sun.  .....forecast in few minutes!

No slugs to be seen and nothing apparently eaten.   I'm sure they have feasted on something though....prob found areas I don't explore too much.  As plamts fill in rapidly now there is increasingly less room for my size 11's to tread among.  

Mixed up some labels on agastaches and couple of dahlias so domt know, until they flower, which varieties they are.  A little frustrsting.  I can make educated guesses but patience is better.  

Hope cholesterol tests will be good news for you Dove.  My last test was 3.1........big dairy eater though.....but that was 8 years or so ago.  I will accept that just as I do the time of my last 100 metres....actually yards.  

Hmmm! Rain in the forecast after all 

 

What would eat Lupins?

Went slug hunting tonight.......well, bit bored .....amd not a single slug or snail did I find.  Not cock a hoop cos no doubt there will plenty around the garden tomorrow night. Maybe too dry and warm .  Or maybe, just maybe, I've finished them all off

If we don't make the peace I will start up my jokes thread again folks ......you have been warned
