Posted: 12/05/2016 at 14:42

Fairly, up to date with everything, just waiting till end of May so I can plant out all my little plants growing in the greenhouse.  Cut the lawn today, well three quarters of it, the mower stopped working

Afternoon all, getting very confused with all this quote stuff, haven't tried it yet perhaps I will later.

Lovely to see you back Runny.

Wonderfully sunny here with a lovely breeze, started to mow the lawn but the mower decided to go on strike before I finished.  Have been looking at the GTech cordless ones.  Bet if I mention that to hubby he will get the old one working again.

Ran some errands and visited mum first thing.  Going back in the garden when I've recoved from my mowing activities.  Could do with some biccies to go with a cuppa, but can I be bothered to pop to the garage to get some

Hi Marion and Marygold.  I think the tulips are Prinses Irene.  Ballerina are flared at the top.  I grew both this year. Lovely photos.

Morning all, just  Have been up a while, honestly.  Had a quick look round the garden everything seems to be looking good.  I think I have lots of Wisteria flowers this year, I am so excited after waiting 5 years.

Hope HRH picks up Pat.  Have a lovely day everyone, I'm off to see baby grandson soon for lots of cuddles.

LG love the colour and shape of that Tulip, I too would love to know its name.

Hi Chicky, the purple tulip in the first photo is called 'Burgundy' I bought it from Taylors. The orange one with it is Ballerina.  It's been my favourite colour combination so far this year.

Evening all,

Pat, that fire looks scary, often seen the helicopters carrying water going over when we're on hols in Turkey. Remember travelling on the local bus one day when a tourist threw a cigarette end out of the window.  The driver stopped and retrieved it, couldn't understand exactly what he was saying to the tourist but I got the general gist of it.

Love the Hoop photo, very exotic. Had a woodpecker and a sparrow hawk in the garden, that's about as exciting as it gets here.

On Nanna duty today, it's absolutely poured down all day. It's supposed to brighten up again by Thursday, can't get back in the garden until then anyway.  I'm off visiting new grandson tomorrow for more cuddles.
