New plants for beds if I can find space - otherwise pots.

Sweet Williams
Nicotiana
Surfina - Blue Vein
Scaevola Purple fan
Tumbelina Susanna
Verbena Aztec


Compost - 3 for £10

A new rose - can't find the name.

This sculptural plant - Acanthus mollis I thought I had dug up but it has multiplied so it deserves to stay.

What a beautiful garden! I am so envious of gardens that thrive so well. All eight gardens in this clos have a huge fight against ants. I'm forever boiling the kettle and killing off yet another ant's nest and this time it's in Herman's run.

And I would so like a car for an hour. I need to buy turf and a few plants for the run but dammit, it's really not feasible on a bike:(

Do keep up with your wonderful pictures of your garden :-)

Beautiful plants and a very BEAUTIFUL Garden, my dear....
I am glad you will have help with your house---I don't know what I would do if I didn't have Lucy once a week....
Sounds like you had a lovely meal, too...! Yum, Yum, Yum! And another wonderful visit with M.

Zed: poor Herman - I hope they don't bite him.
I'll certainly keep showing pictures of the garden but I try not to repeat myself. Inevitably I do.

Naomi: yes life is quite exciting with Sheila coming on Thursday and the new TV etc on Friday. I really enjoy seeing Karen (the gardener)and I hope Sheila will be the same - as far as compatibility goes.

What a beautiful garden... (love your pictures of it with snow too) so green and lush, so different from mine.
I use to love working in the garden but now it is just a little here and there for me.

Parsnip: believe me I do very little physical work in the garden now. Today I pottered round washing pots and refilling with compost and after I had done three was exhausted:)

PI said...

LOM: honey, I'm hopeless with lupins too. The get all bug- bound. These are acanthus mollis:)
