I am impulsive. I have come home in a suit to plant onion sets or decide to plant something first thing in the morning and do,so,in my slippers......yes! No comments please, I am a slippers man. This because I used to wear out my,socks so,quickly that I thought slippers would be good idea.
Can't be bothered to change sometime so I just impatiently do something in the garden.

Oops! Ok Brumbull I bow to your greater wisdom!!

Red dahlia. Your hostas look great.
It's too early for hostas to show any growth just yet. Dont worry they are very tough plants and should be even bigger and better this summer
I would not split those this year
The flower looks like a Gerbera.....if I'm wrong i will be told....and I grow them too. Is that still planted outside?
Here in Cornwall they are fine outside but maybe need some protection where you are

What annuals can I sow for summer colour?

Ryan, check out perhill plants online. You would get convolvulous mauritanicus plants cheaply. You only need 2 or 3 plants?? Save time sowing seeds and nearly as cheap.
Protect convolvulous cneorum from frosts for a while.
Keen then Ryan?

What's the weather like in your area?

It's lovely here today. Sunny and feeling quite warm. Cut honeysuckles back over the arch and cut grass. ,oh! And cut out flowered stems from earliest hellebores, fed and mulched them and said thanks for such fine show and requested a second flush in summer
