Major sleep in this morning  OH says its because I'm busy everyday, I guess he's right

Still contemplating my last border to's in the purple and white garden so it's important to get the balance right between the colours which can include pinks and blues (so not that exclusive), but also how much will they be shaded by my growing sambucus. it's a baby at the moment but this will be it's third year. I guess the answer is to plant and see...there's always next year to move stuff

Anyone done any gardening today?

Had to visit B&Q first thing and came home with some lovely salvias

Then it was out in the garden to plant 3 separate iris and one shrub followed by a fair amount of mulching.

Also arrange plants in a bare patch to decide on the planting combos...I may yet change my mind

Gorgeous hot day, no complaints

Save me a chair later BM  they will go down a treat at the end of the day

Just back from B&Q, OH sent me for some supplies he wanted and I found some Salvias had stuck to my bottom half way home

I don't mind having the plants, but its desperation when they cling in all the wrong places with sticky labels!!!

Off into the garden then, so much to do

morning all

working in the garden planned today, it's already shaping up to be a gorgeous day and Australia have biggest rainfall in 100yrs, what a shame for them

Thanks guys, it's very new planting and obviously you can't feel the atmosphere through a picture but I'm over the moon with how it's shaping up

 Took some photos this evening just of garden in general, especially happy with borders under my pergola, exactly how I wanted (still bits of tidying to do at step and border edging)  its really given this area a lovely atmosphere, I feel a set of garden furniture coming on...

Lovely sunny day here, just hung washing as well although I only put my little drying stand out on the patio, no ugly washing lines for my beautiful garden 

Went out earlier to do some stuff, got one clematis in the ground going up my third pergola post and had a mare of a time trying to untangle the stems and leaves to train it only to realise that I cant find my tree ties so I had the brilliant idea of using pegs  worked a treat!

Just one post left to plant up but that's a bigger job since I need to extend the border a wee bit and get an iris in there too, so will wait until another day

Still got landscaping to do, need to planting about 20 odd plants in the ground and get my terracotta pots planted up. A fair amount of mulching left and still need to spread a ton of stone chippings over the thin patches on the paths but all that can wait...really low on energy today so OH has convinced me to have a rest day.

Hostas showing through at last, except the Patriot in one of my two hosta beds, its times like this that we anxiously await the return of old friends
