    What a beautiful garden! What are those purple flowers - I've never seen anything like them.
    • CommentAuthornanny north
    • CommentTimeJul 20th, 2017 10:26am (7 days ago)
    They are petunias Kate and come in all sorts of colours. You can get trailing ones or upright ones. I got mine from B@Q from the condemned shelf I get most my plants from there they are all cheap and just need a bit of love and care and hey presto you got a garden full of beauty at a fraction of the cost,

    roots posted Cc .... G/N posted them this afternoon xx. Was thinking if you plant them up in a bucket or tub your garden shouldnt get over run with them so quickly, although they will seed themselves xx

    Lovely! The choir I play for gave me a hydrangea - a white one. It's really pretty...I do hope I can keep it alive!

    That is such a lovely idea to share your garden with us all.
    Mine is quite wild and odd pieces. Wish I could on the pics for you but I'm not up to much with my health.
    I have all the weeds that the slugs don't want. A bed of Rose Bay Willow Herb against a straggly red Acer and a Stag Horn Shumac tree. Also a Fatsia all crushed together on the North front. Not a lawn, just wild grass which gets cut sometimes around the table and chairs.
    A narrow (fairy) path round between them and the privet hedge mostly occupied by Yellow Rattle that keeps the grass down. Had to put a new fake bridge in, t'other rotted away. You can't see it just now, only at night when it's green solar string lights come on.

    I have four other very small bits of garden around, mostly paved, ending in a tiny secret garden with a couple of thrones. (Tall plastic chairs sprayed gold)

    Ollie, your garden sounds delightful. :face-smile:
    • CommentTimeJul 25th, 2017 11:19pm (2 days ago)
    I have grass, dandelions, and a variety of creeping weeds. That's having new build for you! Every year I decide I'll plant something but never do. My garden is tiny.

    Sorry to hear you're not well, Ollie. I hope you're feeling better soon. Your garden sounds lovely - I wish mine was like that. Glad you like solar lights too - I'm expecting a stiff letter from Heathrow soon to complain about my lights confusing incoming aeroplanes.

    I love hydrangeas CC they are fairly easy to care for so you should be fine with it. I popped into B@Q this morning and managed to snag myself five really nice big pots of Cape Daisy fro their condemned shelf. Just what I needed to brighten up the decking on the summer house. They should have been £8 a pot and I got them for £3 per pot. I so love a bargain. Poor things were totally water logged and they dont like that. Ive sorted them out and got all the sorry bits removed and now they are drying out a bit under the gazebo. Its totally tipping it down here today. The cats are well fed up with it and you should hear Mickey chuntering away he does have a good old moan when things not to his liking ha ha

    Thank you for your kind comments Ollie so sorry you are not well, I hope you feel better real soon. I only showed you the best bits of the garden !!! My poor veg plot behind the summer house is a right tip sort of out of sight out of mind. We did plant some potatoes in there which are really tasty. I want to get it cleared out by autumn so I can plant some broad beans and garlic. Its either too hot too wet or my back isnt up to it at the moment. I know excuses excuses !!! So nice just to sit out and enjoy the nice bits of the garden though. Now G/N has put up the second gazebo I take my craft work out there and its lovely and wind proof. The grassy side will be turned over to Mallorys pool in a couple of weeks.
    • CommentTimeJul 26th, 2017 7:04pm (1 day ago)
    I forgot to say thanks for the gender pumpkin photos NN!

    Take care of yourself Ollie. I hope you aren't overdoing it and can spend time relaxing. Sit back and give your orders out instead!

    I think it's rained everywhere today - except drought struck Europe! My cats wil roam from front door to back door, and then to front again over and over, each time meowing at me as if to tell me to turn the water off!

    Tuppence is miserable and has annexed Eric's soft fleecy shirt to sleep/sulk on. Good job he has two.
    • CommentTimeJul 27th, 2017 9:10pm (4 hours ago)
    Why is Tuppence miserable?

    I'm miserable too - can you send me Eric's other shirt please?!
