Great pics guys, love the clematis, arum lilies, alliums and the pile of rocks. Will look amazing with plants or water

Wish I could help,  just chopped all my Sedums back for the Chelsea chop but they are now composting.  You could try the seed swap thread?

Morning all, feeling much better today. Obviously I overdid it again in the garden on Wednesday  

Dry day, just finished first bird feed, the worm feeder will get filled three more times today, yesterday I must have had 60 starlings visit in the afternoon, all the babies screaming to be fed. I feel sorry for the parents and I know Starlings look greedy because they are big birds, but they have the same needs as prettier birds

One day left until I get my very first car  I must have been a good girl  (in a past life)

Done practice theory tests all week and haven't scored less than 90% 

Watching GW repeats while I study more,

BL, enjoy your trip

WilDB, love your potted palm, chicky, geums *in love sigh*, ighten, very sophisticated matching pot with those tulips  David, the iris just-never-fail and your bolder path is awesome 

Everything is ready to pop nearly...I'm waiting patiently


In the meantime I enjoy and appreciate every chance I get 



 Oh and I'm also training the under gardener to do my bidding

It's probably easier to say what I don't like about gardening such as using chemicals when I am forced to, suffering the loss of something for a year or forever to pests and diseases, damage done by the weather is frustrating 

Everything else is as enjoyable as it is necessary to my well being. Just couldn't imagine not being outside, whatever time of year

Sunny day but breezy. Not done much gardening except watering pots and what went on my merry-go-round earlier in the year. Not feeling well again, woke up with a temperature that tablets aren't dealing with so I'm relaxing in bed with Now TV at my command. 

Hope all are having a good day
