Remove the lawn, compost anything that doesn't earn it's keep and sell your plants at any boot fairs or fêtes. Face the inevitable  and enjoy your greenhouse

The burnt orange iris are my favourite I think although that might change if and when I get my Black Swan to flower

I know your pain Clari. Flynn has a handful of intolerances and even forgets to eat at home unless we remind him although he will scoff anything he finds outside.

Thank fook for chooks and paddy fields is all I can say, there's not much else he can digest. He weights the grand sum of 4.5kilos but he's not underweight, just little 

Not much garden time this week but I did manage the gym again and feeling it this evening

It's been freezing today! 

The wind is fiercely cold and there's been heavy cloud cover. I thought we were in June 

Luckily I've been far too productive in other ways so no garden today. 

Teaching Flynn to like my car. He hates cars, he freezes with fear at noisy roads, so far I've got him inside on my lap with the door shut. Next stage is turning on the engine. He's a quick learner but we will take all the time he needs

I've got a Lupin with a single stem but two flower spikes joined together 

Maybe it's the year for it?
