Hopefully spring is not far away and we all know how curative gardening can be

Back from the GC!

  • 3 new bird nest boxes as promised,
  • a new feeder for meal worms, 
  • a new litter picker for the front garden
  • some training wire and eyes for my pyrancatha
  • two more Lavender to make a row of five in total (can't wait for that flowering moment!)
  • and my guilty pittosporums, Abbotsbury Gold and a duplicate variegatum just because I have admired these shrubs for so long. They never get boring!

Coffee in me first, then more planting

Yes, I know.

sorry Edd, Post makes more sense when I read it again I get it now, and just hope that positives can endure in troubled times.

Off to the GC today, got to buy two more Lavender to make a row of five in the bottom garden (sorted that one out yesterday) plus those pesky bird nest boxes and feeding thingys and stuff I forgot to get last time because I was a-swooning over plant material

Have a great day all! Whether here promises another planting day for me woot!

Morning all.

Edd, I don't understand any of your post and some of it sounds disturbing. I hope you are okay

Beautiful sunny day with forecast like that all week here in Kent so I got two plants in the ground

Oh, and discovered one of my Clematis alive and kicking when I thought it dead

beautiful, sunny, warmish day here in Kent and I got two plants in the ground

Very happy about that as I have soooo many to get through , an early start is great.

Also played with my plants a bit, especially the evergreens or those with leaf, shifting them around in the borders and decided on a lot that way.

There's nothing like placing them in their pots for real even though OH bought me that expensive tablet so I could design without lifting a finger

 Best if we keep that between ourselves

Hi all.

Back from the gym and small shopping in town.

Bought some bigger pots for my house plants that miraculously manage to survive periods of long drought, heavy pollution and a serious lack of vitamin D when I forget to draw the curtains in the lounge

More bird food. I ran out yesterday and I think they noticed because they were on the feeders as soon as my back was turned after refilling them.

Now that I am also fed and watered, I will be busy in my garden all day! It's beautifully sunny, gorgeously warm but not overly warm, everything is flowering, my heart is filled with joy and the birds are singing.

Did I forget to mention it's the virtual records from my photo album on the PC? I'll be making my mind up about where to place plants

 phfft, yeah right...
