So much is late in my garden chicky comparing my photos from same time last year 

Matty you're right about liking spiky and white, I already have echinops ritro so let us know about the white form 

Hosta, what a lot of work your garden must be! its huge 

Yvie, put those embarrassed smilies away, changing your mind is allowed especially with good reason and it always makes me feel better 

LesleyK take care of yourself ,it's important

Glad most of you got some gardening done

Yvie good luck with the climbers that extension is ghastly 

Chicky poor love and you had such plans to catch up but family is right to take care of you 

One shift to go and we are only SM open for miles so it's going to be crazy busy, might even break my record takings which I broke weekend before my holiday

Morning all...

Has been raining through the night, good drenching but I'm undeterred, will be out in it in a bit

Flynn still hopes to follow me in the garden which is awful and I know its for his own good to solve our issue but with the vet's regime as well, it feels too much like punishment

Back to work for the weekend, apparently the queue for donuts is already forming
