Decent day today, not cold and some nice sunshine.  Went to the garden centre today and treated myslef to Brunnera Jack Frost, Pulsatilla Eve Constance and Euonymus Fortunei Silver Queen.  Managed to get them planted along with the Geum Fireball I bought the other day.

Off to firstborn's later as I'm on Nanna Duty tomorrow.

Morning all,  Not feeling particularly bright this morning didn't go to bed until 4.00 due to a bout of IBS so feeling a bit delicate. 

Sun is shining and thinking I might go for a stroll round the GC to cheer myself up a bit. 

I'm definitely up for a september trip to Cornwall, a bit of shoe polish isn't going to put me off I'm sure his absolutelys were all the better for it.

Actually managed to get some gardening done.  Planted some daffodils from pots that had gone over, moved some honesty and removed loads of grape hyacinths (will still have lots of plants next year).  Sun is still out here but rain forecast again later today.

Oh dear oh dear,,oh dear......

By the time mine get mildew they are pretty much over anyway, I just pull them up shaking the seed off as I do so they come again next year. 

Oh dear oh dear,,oh dear......

I'm not in the slightest bit jealous of them but that doesn't mean I agree with the amount of my money being spent on their lifestyle, I'd much rather it went to charity.

Sun trying to break through here.  Have walked the garden and it's amazing how much the rain has bought on the plants even in this short time.

Nerines and Lilies

I planted my Nerine Bowdenii bulbs in October.  They are coming along nicely both in pots and the borders.  Hopefully someone will come along and give you more advice.

Verdun will be getting a visit from Charlie boy if he's not careful, with all those Cornish connections.
