Busy day.  And my mahonia caress and geranium hocus pocus arrived whilst I was away.  That was a fast delivery. plants look good.

Just finished moving niece suddenly decided we have to move beds around and,,of course, the co-ordinated furniture.  Whaaaat?  Anyway all done and I guess it does all look better. 

Been lovely day here and pretty warm.

Bio freak,  since your bushes are only 2 years old they will move easily.

Programmes recorded but I did catch Alan Titchmarsh.  One garden was superb for me with lots of plants I like and grow.  Lots of foliage, conifers,etc but didn't see any grasses.  

I think we shouldn't complain....2 garden progs right now!   And I'm beginning to get the gardening buzz now......

Well allium.  I am made of sterner stuff.    I jolly well will for certain...almost certainly....stick to my resolution.  I will only visit gc to grab a cuppa and plants will no longer tempt me.
