So hot and sunny here 

Started my day weeding the front garden, it has a serious bindweed problem that has left me struggling to bond with this area in past years, although I'm determined to revamp it this year, but won't be planting until the weed is thoroughly deaded 

got out in the back about midday and tackled many more of my potted plants. 

Last job was rescuing some sodden iris, even though I planted them on piles of gravel, they have suffered a wet winter. Conversely, those in pots are doing terrific. Live and learn 

What is your weather like?

Beautiful sunny day 

so far I have planted out four rose bushes, two verbascums, three iris,five geraniums and...let me think what else,  oh yes much underplaying. Everything's squeezed in, back outside to get some lupins and more iris in the ground now 

removing my Astilbes to go to my parents' garden as they have wetter soil than me and I'm fed up with struggling through with my dusty loam

Flynn will only eat from his bowl at breakfast time. We have to hand feed his afternoon food because he likes to feel included in the family meal

OH works from home, and so do I now with private work that is flexible hrs 

After several yrs of illness, I bought Flynn for him to have company and lift his spirits, he would definitely have preferred a cat but I'm allergic so I took a gamble and it paid off 

they are made for each other and Flynn even is cat-sized for plenty of bedtime cuddles

Oooooh Yvie, how green your borders look already,  mine are still scruffy 

David,  I  know you can cope with anything mother nature throws at you,  years of expertise have stood you well 

my pooch is fabulous and yesee,  he does manual labour for me in the garden, chewing sticks mostly, and running off with my plant pots even when there's a plant in it!  he's a sun lover though. ..won't work in wet or woolly conditions 

Katie made a right racket here in southern England, luckily no local damage, garden fences still standing
