Great idea LesleyK  maybe with some before and after shots?  Can you tell I'm an addict?

Morning all

Homework day for me this morning , that's home-work not house-work, thank goodness 

Dove, I hope your resident robins are okay

LesleyK, did you sneak in 50 plants without declaring? Or did I miss the post where you told us what sticky labels ended up back at your house? Last I remember was the anticipated trip to the GC. Since I'm now focused on learning to drive, I will need to get my plant fix from you lot 

Been looking into tiredness issues this morning, some how the m word has been mentioned, might need to check my hormone levels

How frustrating MrsG 

I love that taxus Yvie, it's a real statement plant, I always admire a big one I trek past on the way to the GC 

Bakery shifts finished for another weekend, it's been raining all day off and on but my takings are going through the roof so goodness knows what will happen when it's sunny  I already give up my breaks and regularly stay late to ensure my customers get what they ask for 

My focus needs to change over the next few weeks, need to start intensive driving lessons so no more sticky labels to distract me, just as well really as I want to see things develop when we finally do get some summer in order to assess those mistakes I can't live with. So far it's an iris in the wrong place and some smaller plants that would look better growing between other plants rather than as a lump

OH is overtired and grumpy so I'll sign off for now. Enjoy your holidays and trips to New York folks
