Missing Bees

Posted: 01/06/2015 at 17:31

Enough sightings to not be concerned but no honey bees yet, just wait till my Photinia davidii pops. I need earmuffs when passing that thing

Does that mean dry soil KEF?

My soil is not  for anything with needs that surpass the geum, would it stay small if it lacks water or just plain die?

I'm looking for the statement plant for the middle border, free draining loam and part shade

Monty's bananas are attractive

One of my heroes was a 18th century french nobleman who wrote to his wife advising to get the winter clothing out since it was threatening to snow in June, no joke

Runny, it's called Carnival Time 

I must say myself,  I'm so in love with her

Wow KEF  that poppy is lovely but what's the prickly stemmed thing growing beside it? Adore the planting combo of last pic 

Interrupted in my viewing of this thread so P.S Pdoc and berghill, such lush healthy plants in your gardens, I spied one of those Taxus standi -uppy -thingies in berghill's and what a beautiful tree Pdoc. I could spend all day admiring it

Chicky,  your path is gorgeous 

Runny, the fresh growth on that stumpy tree is exquisite 

David, incredible Buddleia 

Mrhursty, your garden vistas and planting would give any designer a run for their money. Stunning!  I love the upturned bricks in the path to collect reflections after rain perhaps

HELLO FORKERS!

Great idea LesleyK  maybe with some before and after shots?  Can you tell I'm an addict? 

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all

Homework day for me this morning , that's home-work not house-work, thank goodness 

Dove, I hope your resident robins are okay

LesleyK, did you sneak in 50 plants without declaring? Or did I miss the post where you told us what sticky labels ended up back at your house? Last I remember was the anticipated trip to the GC. Since I'm now focused on learning to drive, I will need to get my plant fix from you lot 

Been looking into tiredness issues this morning, some how the m word has been mentioned, might need to check my hormone levels 

HELLO FORKERS!

How frustrating MrsG 

I love that taxus Yvie, it's a real statement plant, I always admire a big one I trek past on the way to the GC 

Bakery shifts finished for another weekend, it's been raining all day off and on but my takings are going through the roof so goodness knows what will happen when it's sunny  I already give up my breaks and regularly stay late to ensure my customers get what they ask for 

My focus needs to change over the next few weeks, need to start intensive driving lessons so no more sticky labels to distract me, just as well really as I want to see things develop when we finally do get some summer in order to assess those mistakes I can't live with. So far it's an iris in the wrong place and some smaller plants that would look better growing between other plants rather than as a lump

OH is overtired and grumpy so I'll sign off for now. Enjoy your holidays and trips to New York folks
