Hope everyone is well.
Extremes of sunshine and showers here today. The ground is very boggy.
Kate, put those guilty faces away! You have rescued a plant, and bought a relatively inexpensive one that you really wanted. I'm sure you deserved the treat. You are a good girl I have sucumbed to the latest catalogue and bought Clematis 'Florida Alba', Astrantia 'Maxima', Geranium 'Double Jewel' and Echinacea 'White Swan'. And not a shred of guilt! Hurrah
Inka, ouch! I would have replaced the Vodka with Brandy, but I like your thinking! Hope you're feeling better soon.
Lovely pics Winter. You can tell you're an arty person, just from those few photos.
Thats a generous offer on freecycle Geoff. Are you tempted?
Backyardee, you have my greatest sympathies. I hate rabbits! They are the bain of my gardening life. Dust off that gun and get going. Last year, I upgraded my 'Vic's' 'Rat Catcher' air rifle to a 'Weihrauch'. Cost me a bit, but I saw it as an investment! I can't tell you the amount of times I've been close to tears in the garden, after surveying the damage done by these critters. We don't have as large a space to fence as you, 1/3 acre, but it would still be expensive and a huge pain due to high fencing and well established, tall Laurels. I have to cloche most of my plants every night, and have now got all my patio pots on etegerre's, so they are out of the rabbits reach. I spray a chili and garlic mix on the plants when I remember, but I'm not sure how much good it does. What are 'ramsons'?
