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

Remove the lawn, compost anything that doesn't earn it's keep and sell your plants at any boot fairs or fêtes. Face the inevitable  and enjoy your greenhouse

The burnt orange iris are my favourite I think although that might change if and when I get my Black Swan to flower

I know your pain Clari. Flynn has a handful of intolerances and even forgets to eat at home unless we remind him although he will scoff anything he finds outside.

Thank fook for chooks and paddy fields is all I can say, there's not much else he can digest. He weights the grand sum of 4.5kilos but he's not underweight, just little 

Not much garden time this week but I did manage the gym again and feeling it this evening
