Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 15/04/2015 at 20:48

Incredible day in Kent, I'm a lizard so worked through the midday sun 

No real gardening though, more jobbing around getting stuff finished under the pergola 

Tomorrow is another full day in the garden, more jobbing but also the fun planting too

There he is 

Dove, sticky labels are massively embarrassing, especially on your hair, face or bum

Stonking hot here today, it didn't even have to warm up first as I wore a t-shirt and bodywarmer to town at 9 am (because i'm the type of girl who feels the chill on a summer's day) and quickly removed top layer

Needed to get something for climbers to climb up and across the pergola, but first I had to get my eyebrows threaded, it had been too long and I was so  I've been hiding behind my fringe for a week 

Home by lunch when I set to work fixing rolls of sturdy green mesh across the top of the pergola, (even in this heat ). Tomorrow I will do the posts and planting, OH wants a clematis up each post and the maybe a rose for dappled shade. He's not good in full sun but I'm a lizard and just soak it up

Don't worry about previous owners DD, it's your baby now 

Your plans, your hard work and your way

Morning bekkie, thanks for asking after my baby 

He's on vet food only  and we are starting to test him on a list of foods to discover what is upsetting him. 

So far chicken is looking good, that's a start as he loves his little treat every day, it will take time to go through the entire list so it's a long haul  main thing is he's happy now

Morning Dove and chicky and welcome back Clari I didn't realise you'd been on holiday 

Well deserved me thinks

Lots of stuff to do in the garden today with no distractions

My garden was a lot more advanced last year too DD, OH reliably informs me that we had a much warmer start to spring  I don't remember but my photo journal backs up the story 

Anyways, great job done, that border looks set to leap.

Welcome back Mrs G and ighten, 

Beau's Mum, what a lovely job you've made on your beautiful garden, you should be proud 

Re what to grow up the pergola?  No idea yet, probably clematis and something else but nothing poisonous as Flynn tends to obey me 90% of the time and then runs away with something he's found and chews it up before obeying me again
