Magpie Burying Nuts

Posted: 23/05/2015 at 21:12

Pansy that used to happen frequently in one of my old gardens, the squirrel and the magpie used to fight like cat and dog.

Meant to mention, I think I had another visit from brer fox last night.  My irises were damaged, an allium broken off and a number of smaller plants dug up.  I wish he'd find a new place to visit.

Thats one I've got earmarked.  I have 2 tangerine geums just looking for a companion.

I booked my place ages ago Verdun so don't you dare close that bridge until I'm well and truly over it.

Warm and close here for most of the day but the sun has come out a little now.  Have been busy today sorting out the irrigation system so pots etc stay watered while I am away.  Have also cut the hedge and trimmed the Pittosporum and the Euonymus into shape. Just need to mow lawns tomorrow.

Mind you the house is like a tip and I still have washing to doso I guess I'm not quite ready yet.

Can't stand them, don't know why just do.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 22/05/2015 at 22:03

Mrs G, I have filled the pots and hanging baskets with a mixture of 

Lobelia cascade

Petunias Daddy F1

White, Pink and Purple Osteospermums 

Pink Diascia

Berrie White Nemesia

Verbena Aztec Magic plum, blue and white

Helichrysum Gold


Fuchsia Bella Rosella

Geranium Burgundy Red 

Helichrysum gold

Grasses (Rubrum)

The baskets have been done today so the greenhouse is looking fairly empty.

Oh sorry, morning all, have been out and about this morning, have decided that there are a couple of small areas of the garden that I'm not happy with (there's a shocker).  So when I come back from Cornwall I might just have to do a little bit of rearranging.

Verdun, did you say grey and rain.  That better change, you know you promised me tropical conditions.

P'doc, I'll be 27 around this time next year, hope you have a good day.  I'm planning to celebrate my birthday next year by going to Chelsea.  I'm really enjoying most of the coverage, but like everyone else I'd love to see more detail re the plants, rather than the general visit to the stands and chats about gold medals.

Going back out there to do a bit more so will catch up again later.
