Just popped on to say evening all,  you lot have been chatty, I can't remember what's been said there were so many pages.

Not done much today, took grandaughters to school and nursery, little one cried when I left her, nearly picked her up and took her back home

Had my talons done this morning and finally got round to cutting up the capilliary matting.  Need to sow my seeds, might try and get round to it tomorrow.

NB I planted Tuberose too lots of foliage but no flowers yet.  Read up on them and it does say late summer/autumn.

Evening all, Mum seemed a bit better today but the cold is lousy.

Hostafan, sorry about the knee, I was at the doctors with mine today, it's been playing up for ages but couldn't face all the agro of getting it sorted, it was bad enough trying to sort out my back.  I have to go for an xray to rule out bone damage before going down the mri route.  Agree with getting in and out of the car - it's a real pain (pardon the pun) sitting down and standing up is pretty awful and as for climbing stairs.  Ever since I hit 50 I feel like I'm falling apart.

I'm on nanna duty tomorrow so I wont be around.

Oh by the way RB I'm on a laptop not an ipad.

Early night for me I think with a hot toddy.

Against all logic.......

Last year in the middle of summer I basically relocated every plant in a border because I wasn't happy with the plant combinations.  They all survived and flowered beautifully this year.

I love the fence too Fairy, really good use of space. Might take a look at Helitrope (spelling) I've never planted any.

Morning all, up early today for a doctors appt, back home now with a cuppa.  It's a bit chilly today, not sure if it will warm up enough to tempt me out into the garden.

Sorry to hear about your disturbed nights Snoodle, I remember those days well, hope little one feels better soon.

Chin up Pat, it must be hard not to see your grandson often.

Well done Wonky, sounds like you have been busy, basements are not a natural environment for a gardener.

Not planned anything for today going to curl up on the sofa and keep my cold to myself I think.

Wont go without a fight....

My name is Yvie and I am a plantaholic.

After giving myself a good talking to I thought I had convinced myself that I did not need any more bulbs this year. 

£50 worth of daffs and tulips later I fear I have failed.

what does your garden mean to you

Its my green gym, a place I can relax and wind down and it lifts my spirits when I am depressed.
