Edd,  clinical  the area with pots is very young, I'm still waiting for things to grow 

The last pic is the most mature part of the garden, the tree is Eucalyptus pauciflora, airy canopy, kind habit, and the most exquisite peeling bark  (especially when it rains)

The Clematis Montana isn't looking it's best after we had to cut it hard back last year to re-do the chicken wire it's growing up but a good prune should set it up to romp away this year right?

Anyone seen any ladybirds?

Remember two sightings since start of the year, both seven spots

Glorious sunshine here so been in the garden all day

Mostly tidying up and PPPs, (possible planting positions) for all the goodies I bought yesterday. While I'm at the GC I have a brilliant plan but then those pesky labels don't declare the finer details or my brain forgets the other 17 plants l already own fitting the said description 

Oh well, autumn's project will be the front garden which currently gets about 2.5hrs of my attention per annum. I've figured out why this is and it's because we don't have a fence along the front so the garden feels like a piece of graffiti instead of a painting in a frame, caprice? 

Anyhow, plenty of plants ready to go in after some fencing, although I have something else on my to-do list first 

OH just bought me a car so I guess I better get on and pass my test then 

no excuse me while I tackle the highway code

Newman and Redford, almost enough to distract me from plants 

Been to the long distance GC today, on the other side of town. Was looking for Verbascums and Echinacea but sticky label syndrome was rife, and I had to trek all the way home with a Physocarpus Diable D'or, Penstemons  Sour Grapes  and Heavenly Blue,  Iris Carnival Time and Geum  Totally Tangerine X2 all in 3lt pots 


My name is Winter and I am a plant-a-holic  

another plant for topiary
