What's the weather like in your area?

Posted: 12/05/2012 at 21:42

Dry day in Kent. Not especially warm unless the sun was actually shining which wasn't often since there was an awful lot of cloud, fluffy and not so fluffy.  and a cold Northerly wind.

Oh you reminded me, I found a file on my desktop earlier of some close ups I took last year with the intention of painting this fine fella one day...

 He was resting on my tomato canes and I nearly got too close!

 So ofc I dashed back for my camera

 The legs in the back ground belong to hubby, who was there in a supervisory capacity. In the end I had to leave alone, as this chap or chapette's tail started to rise, which I seem to believe means I am annoyed with you. I've never been stung by a dragonfly, but I reckon it would hurt a bit.

@Gardenfantic, oh how lovely this is. I am still biding my time for an Iris, as I want the colour to match its place of which, I am not yet decided.

Why Miss Bateman?

@diggingdoris, Miss Bateman gave us 3 blooms the year we bought her and about 12 the following year. This year, there were about 40, half of which were eaten by the earwigs!

Good luck with yours

I would love a change in levels. I think it adds so much interest to a garden and I am much better at placing plants off existing structures or landscaping than arranging a flat empty bed.

It's really stupid that I am a competent artist in so many other crafts and hobbies and understand colour and composition naturally and yet I dither and faff about like some numpty in the garden. My hubby says, just plant it already...but I can't be satified with less than perfection

@figrat, I guess garden designers just have the knack, but its much more satisfying when we do it ourselves.
