Morning gang 

Tired this morning so stayed in bed 

It's chilly here but I can see so many things waking up now in the garden. Might venture out later, have square terracotta pots to plant up and clematis to get in the ground.

This week's to-do list includes building a second planter for my homeless hostas, shifting the remaining earth into it,  landscaping bottom area ready for new compost bins, and waiting for deliveries to arrive Tuesday and Wednesday.  

Have middle son coming on Thursday to help build the pergola 

Oh, nearly forgot that post holes still need to be dug but first...need to shop for perennials

Enjoy your Sundays off, see you all later

We had a pair of mating doves in the garden recent years who kept trying their luck but nest building was the worst I've ever seen with giant holes in it and precariously perched,  the eggs kept falling out

Welcome Wonky Legs, I know all about builders' rubble and sunken patios and blank canvases so you have my sympathises and congratulations, oh, and I occasionally know the odd bit about planty  stuff, sometimes

Luckily there are many others who know far more so stick with them 

Look forward to conversing

Chillin after work shift, OH has the ruggers on all evening but I never mind the sport and he never minds gardening programmes

I can relax with a glass of something and look at my  garden photos for the thousandth time but it makes me happy 

Can't wait to see your borders this year Yvie after the amount of hard work and expenditure. 

Hope bekkie is well

Naughty Yvie  Glad you are enjoying the garden though, should look incredible this year for you.

I'm feeling poorly today don't even have the energy for plant porn  but that's okay, I'm goodly ahead in the garden so it can wait until next week. Pergola arrives on Wednesday and more garden supplies on Tuesday...sheeesh, so much money to make it perfect. I hope by next year I can slow down a bit and potter along nicely instead

Glad you're safe Verdun, I wouldn't want all your fans to wonder where you are on the next episode of Poldark

Great pics Hosta! Thanks for thinking of all those overcast or wide of the maximum effect.

Anyone heard from Verdun yet? Did he get swallowed up by the cosmic Cornwallian phenomenon?
