Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Posted: 13/02/2017 at 18:59

Sunny here today, emptied hanging baskets, moved pots around and got rid of a lot of dead foliage from perennials.  Lots of plants pushing through the soil now, it's so exciting.  Even have a lupin showing.

Have just found out how to resize photos in Windows 10.  Wont be posting many as it's a bit of a faff.  Have managed to post a photo of my new hellebore.  Here she is.

Loads of people have disappeared.  Quite a few went when they changed the layout of the forum.  I think quite a few signed off due to the difficulties faced posting photos.

Afternoon all, Weather here is beautiful, mind you the wind is chilly.  Have been in the garden tidying up and rearranging pots.  Lots of perennials poking their heads through the soil.  Even have some lupins showing.  Have put down a few organic slug pellets.  Lost loads last year to the slugs. 

No idea about bank accounts.  You have to have money to put in them

The blue one grows like a weed here, in fact it's a bit of a nuisance.  Never tried the white one and didn't know there was a red one.

Thanks Wonky, BM also offered and I've tried to send her a couple but don't know if it will work.  Its a recent thing.  up until a few weeks ago they would load if I enhanced them, this automatically reduced the size.  It seems that a recent upgrade has changed this so now they won't load at all.  I really wish they could sort this out as posting photos is such a big thing on a gardening forum.

Evening all, just got back from firstborn's, lots of cuddles from Mabel and been talked to death by Merri, she's deciding what to ask for on her birthday, it's not till end of April but she feels she needs to be prepared.

Firstborn and Secondborn have 'had words'.  I hate family arguements, I'm sure they will get over it but it always makes me feel very sad.

It's been freezing cold here today, I can't wait for it to warm up a bit.  The wind is really whistling down the chimney but it's too late to light a fire.

Fires sound awful Pat, glad they are not close to you.  Hope everyone stays warm and safe.

My mum passed away yesterday.

Sorry to hear of your sad news Ecokid.  Fairy's right you will remember your mum when it snows.  My relationship with my Dad was never the best, but everytime I see a lavender coloured Rhododendron I think of him.  He had one in the front garden, his pride and joy and I vividly remember passing one in full bloom on the way to his funereal.  I think of him everytime I see one.  Also both my father in law and mother in law passed away on their own.  We had sat with both for hours and hours but they waited until we had left the room before they also left.  You have nothing to reproach yourself for.  Try and concentrate on the happy times.
