Dont feel a failure aym......maybe paranoid if you think you will be atracked by sluts. 

we will all be feeling better.....summer this week 

early walk with dog then pruned berberis darwinii with cordless hedgetrimmer.   A superb shrub that flowered for a few weeks but now time to shape .......makes a nice dark green dome for the rest of the year 

dry but a band of rain due soon but then warm sunshine for the afternoon....

Flo, doesnt look too bad to me.  Some vine weevil damage too but I would do nothing to it other than to apply nematodes or provado for weevil larvae

Divided bowles golden grass to surround some of my purple perennials.  Plenty of rain expected tonight so perfect timing.  

Put more plants outside today.....milder conditions now to help them adjust.  Could be 20 degrees by the end of the week .  Planted heliotrope between potted regal lilies too to extend the interest and scent

Bosvigo did Lyn a few weeks back....I wangled head of the queue . Got the best too and I just had to show it off to the crowd still waiting.  Hated showing off like that.  Cruel of me....

does Heligan have one too?  You know, I have never been there.    Rectify that this year

I have a friend like you LINDA.   If I pick up a snail she will grab it from me and put it in her pocket.  I dread to think what accumulates there 

drives me potty....POTTY I say 

however it is refreshing and I have respect for her....totally impractical ......thinking. 

Your slugs n snails, if tossed in the rubbish bin, will end up in a bad place anyway 

Do these bare root raspberry canes look acceptable?
