Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Tigs, looks excellent 

so hot in the garden.....there is a cold wind but not in this walled garden. 

Heathers trimmed and tidied, lychnis coronaria alba planted between them and cotinus royal purple.  Neighbour kindly offered me a lager....said I looked hot (hmmm I mean hot as in opposite of cold !!! )

planned to plant out 3 argyranthemums where wallflowers are fading now but the next 2 nights could be cold so I will hang fire.

arranged another visit to help cousin with his stroke-caused aphasia.....we read and pronounce words etc.  Think it helps.  He is one of the lucky stroke victims  there is a lack of official therapy help down here....."5th richest country and all that!"

Monty has grown on me, I must confess.  It can't be an easy job being in the public eye doing your best but constantly being judged.  I enjoyed GW last night, BG earlier and will enjoy Gardening Australia later today.  

( on the downside.....baaaad news today.  And I am very upset about it.    ............

Hmmmmm!  Anyone buying a tulip spade is prob a bit eccentric . "Eccentric" is good 

an ordinary spade is same thing 

but, Monty does love his old tools's ok to show them off as far as I'm comcerned.  I have a collection of old pens and now and then show them off  Why  do so many ponder the petty things?  Does it really matter????

Advice on what to plant in my garden x a

Buttercup, many of those I would have suggested too.  

Helen, check out phormiums, grasses like stipas, santolinas, dwarf purple pittosporums, euryops and echinaceas.  An edge of lavendar will look good and smell good
