You never know what colours you may get plant pauper.  One of the nicest I have is a seedling quite different from others in the garden.  Gardening needn't cost the earth

It seems its lighter and brighter everywhere this a curtain has been lifted.    Looking good for the week ahead too 

salvia guanjuato has decided to flower over past few days........this clump got damaged in summer so delighted to see it.  The most beautiful large gentian blue flowers...check it out folks.  May post a picture later

Hedge cutting and tidying this morning included checking a large white flowered hardy  here osteospermum...variety of ecklonis for rooted pieces. Sure enough, 3 nice rooted plants were found and potted up.  I find all the "hardy" vwrieties will this every summer. 

just check your plants folks...plants for free and ensures you have them next your if you frost destroys your established clumps

Morning folks 

very light and bright this morning...compared to last week.....Dove, you should have come this week.  Took Spike at 6 30 in full sunshine to the beach.  20 degrees forecast today. 

knocked the dew off the grass so I can mow later.  

Still reeling from, I mean the rugby.  No discipline and England paid the price for it.  But Wales will beat the Aussies and so will we so we will still qualify

enjoy the day everyone.

Yes,,pretty easy. check for anything that may have layered itself.  Or bend a low branch down, slightly nick the underside and push it into the soil.  Pin it or place a stone over it.  Should produce a plant by summer's end 

It's my birthday
