Chillin after work shift, OH has the ruggers on all evening but I never mind the sport and he never minds gardening programmes

I can relax with a glass of something and look at my  garden photos for the thousandth time but it makes me happy 

Can't wait to see your borders this year Yvie after the amount of hard work and expenditure. 

Hope bekkie is well

Naughty Yvie  Glad you are enjoying the garden though, should look incredible this year for you.

I'm feeling poorly today don't even have the energy for plant porn  but that's okay, I'm goodly ahead in the garden so it can wait until next week. Pergola arrives on Wednesday and more garden supplies on Tuesday...sheeesh, so much money to make it perfect. I hope by next year I can slow down a bit and potter along nicely instead

Glad you're safe Verdun, I wouldn't want all your fans to wonder where you are on the next episode of Poldark

Great pics Hosta! Thanks for thinking of all those overcast or wide of the maximum effect.

Anyone heard from Verdun yet? Did he get swallowed up by the cosmic Cornwallian phenomenon?

I saw a recommendation to spray with weed killer but only after you have beaten the stems to make the plants flop sideways.  I've never had this weed so this is not a personal experience, but can sympathise 

Anyone done any gardening today?

I never would have dreamed it Verdun 

As for my errors, plants went on my merry-go-round again today with my  4yr old acer doing a few turns now. Let's hope I've cracked it this time 

As for eclipses, I remember the light being very weird, like a spooky cold glow. Really surreal

Glad you are sick -free Clari 

Been reading tonight until I switched on the box and discovered a Time Team programme on Discovery History about garden restoration at Prior Park in Bath. That's a turn up for the books!
