Awwww Pauline  don't give someone the power to spoil your day, or the rest of your life 

Thanks for the good luck chaps, been doing homework for couple of weeks now, OH bought the car so I don't lose the incentive  been there, done that before with a chunk of lessons 

I'm just a little embarrassed to admit that it's not really a sensible car

Morning all, take good care of mum Lesley, and then come home to your garden

Enjoy your hols Yvie, and Liri?  I think the mention of holidays. Also Pandas are still active somewhere in Ireland?

I'm full of uncertainties this morning, need more coffee

My very first car is being delivered at the weekend

Edd,  clinical  the area with pots is very young, I'm still waiting for things to grow 

The last pic is the most mature part of the garden, the tree is Eucalyptus pauciflora, airy canopy, kind habit, and the most exquisite peeling bark  (especially when it rains)

The Clematis Montana isn't looking it's best after we had to cut it hard back last year to re-do the chicken wire it's growing up but a good prune should set it up to romp away this year right?

Anyone seen any ladybirds?

Remember two sightings since start of the year, both seven spots

Glorious sunshine here so been in the garden all day

Mostly tidying up and PPPs, (possible planting positions) for all the goodies I bought yesterday. While I'm at the GC I have a brilliant plan but then those pesky labels don't declare the finer details or my brain forgets the other 17 plants l already own fitting the said description 

Oh well, autumn's project will be the front garden which currently gets about 2.5hrs of my attention per annum. I've figured out why this is and it's because we don't have a fence along the front so the garden feels like a piece of graffiti instead of a painting in a frame, caprice? 

Anyhow, plenty of plants ready to go in after some fencing, although I have something else on my to-do list first 

OH just bought me a car so I guess I better get on and pass my test then 

no excuse me while I tackle the highway code
