Well, as if by magic my voice is returned to me
No smilies for the naughty girl it would seem
I've been reading back but wasn't able to comment, only found out how to fix it when I noticed the particular thread. ..

re Astilbes, Panda I'd give you my three adult plants if I lived nearer, I'm fed up with watering them ! Really fed up. Shouldn't keep Astilbes in my sandy soil but I bought them before I knew what they like
SAD FACE WINK WINK someone give me my smilies back SAD FACE SAD FACE TONGUE OUT

What a great day I've had 

Sun is shining, housework all done by 10 and rest of day with my beloved, no not him, but my garden 

Was mindful to potter today due to weekend shifts but still managed to plant another hefty rescue clematis, John Paul I I. It got dug out early this year due to slug damage but I've never seen it in full glory since I bought it 3yrs back. It's had a hard time wrongly planted by me then last yr it grew well but withered late summer probably lack of moisture, so this time I've given it a treasured spot where it's particular clay, so plenty of nutrients once it gets its feet down. 

I also made drifts from a congested clump of Cowslips, to look more natural next spring.  Finished some other jobs and watered the newest stuff so it doesn't wilt while I'm working 

Mostly happy with all three garden rooms 

Bath time!

Morning all 

What shall I do with my day? 

Just finished watching the Autistic Gardener, wow, that show makes me humble. Genius concept for so many reasons, can't wait for more 

Best get up now then, maybe I'll wash the car today, a bit of light pottering and a read in the bath later. Worn out after 6 hrs driving lessons this week, she's away for two weeks now which gives me a rest and time to practice in my own car
