Birds are eating for two here as well 

The babies are sitting above the feeders in the tree where mummy sparrows are taking bits from the mealworm dish for their babies. A magpie tried to nab one earlier. They've got chicks to feed too I guess

Anything in a pot can be planted at any time except frost 

Since it's in a disintegrating bag, prepare the hole well and careful hauling it over. Try to keep as much soil as possible when transferring, prune back if you don't manage a big root ball and water/feed it well 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Nice pic! The garden I mean

Carol and Ann-Marie were well overdone. Women of a certain age should go easy on the face paint, it's just wrong to slap it on. 

Monty can wear what he damn well pleases, Queen or no queen present, he's being himself which has always been utilitarian in style. 

Mr Wong you're not wrong. I didn't notice his collar or suit and I didn't care either. 

I'm not the least bit interested in clothes, it's the gardens, plants and commentary that I tune in for.
