Just a couple of pics of what's happening now, I'm sure everyone is enjoying their gardens large and small at this time of year, its what we all work so hard to achieve.


P.S. Clive, that zantedeschia is to die for. You are very lucky to have

Impressive gardens from you all! Obviously berghill, punkdoc and BL have les grandes maisons,  but all of the photos are inspirational from Daisyheadcase and Deano too

Thanks for sharing everyone

Blooming lovely BL

I dont' believe it!!

I watched some info on Springwatch this year about slugs and snails. Mostly pertaining to mating habits, but nothing regrows.

They get around on a muscle that is just like a giant foot and they are both sexes, tending to do it with each other at the same time. Also, the boys bits come out of their heads and if they get tangled up, which can happen, the other slug or snail simply bites off the offending item... and they don't regrow it.

After that, they get to just be the girl.

So, that information has made me less stressed when I chop them in half with my secateurs because they are probably not feeling much pain as we might..because other bits and pieces get bitten off all the time...right?

Sad looking Ceonothus

Judging by the comments, my Ceanothus shouldn't be as tall as my house  or longed lived but its fifteen yrs old and flowers its socks off every year so we end up with a blue cloud in May.


Then again, I live in Kent and it faces due south against the house wall

Lovely garden Leo, packed with interest

What has everyone been up to?

I had a few strawberries that were delicious! Also watered a couple of hostas just because, wondered about a bit trying to envisage changes I will make and then attacked my Ceanothus and the privet beneath it to tidy them up and make room for climbers that will get planted behind them against the fence.
