Morning all 

Have a great day chicky, glad the exam stress is over  

We have wooden flooring throughout Clari exactly because of muddy paws, slobbering months and projectile dog sh*t 

Get well to BL 's back, and lovely carrots. 

Good luck building walls LesleyK 

I haven't read back too much, it's been quiet here for a while or I've been very busy

Gym today, then some reading, writing and painting in no particular order 

Have a good day y'll

Morning all

Two lovely surprises in my garden this morning, the beautiful black stuff sitting in my compost  bin and a frog in my cold frame!  Sooooo  happy and excited. Also saw something run out from under my plant yesterday when watering, can't say what it was but it was small furry and grey 

I love having the wild life here, it's a neat garden but I'm extremely pleased things come and do their business here 

Have a good day everyone 

Anyone done any gardening today?

My cordyline grew to maturity, split into two,flowered and then got snapped off in a storm. 

Then it grew from the base and now has too many heads to count  (5 or 6) and is half as tall already

Been steaming here today, hottest day of the year for certain. Got some planting done and now waiting for the heat to break with a storm . Wish me luck, I may melt

Wish I worked in the GC . I love my job but love plants more 

Morning all, we've had light rain overnight, it overcast but extremely warm. Last day before my working weekend but next weekend is my holiday w00t 

I'm not going anywhere of course, spent the price of a holiday on my garden besides which OH needs help with the five contracts he's presently juggling . That's five X full time hours, I don't know how he does it

Chicky, It's Paul's Scarlet. I'm a tiny bit proud of it this year since I had to move it four years ago (its about 20yrs old) and have spent the time since then bringing it back from death's door.  Last summer was also the first time I learnt to tie a rose in properly
