    Morning Karen, Sheila, Cilla :-) bummer weather for the majority of you – really hope it clears up. Brilliant idea to have microchip-opening dishes, Sheila! @cilla you’re on your way now – have a lovely time in Suffolk!

    Oooooh, nearly forgot, safe journey to Cilla @cilla as well, have a great time honey. :rose: :clover:

      Thank you. Neighbour feeds the mogs but Robert starves as Kitten eats his biscuits :-(

    @cilla What was the length of the longest bean you had Cill,? Did it beat last years,? I only managed 24 inches this year,Three inches down on last year. ;-)

  • Morning clickers :-) off to Lidl at 7.30 to get it over with ;-) A little work in to keep me busy while waiting for some other plants to arrive today. Planted yesterday’s (from SR) and they’re very healthy. Hope you have a good day and have a safe journey back, Cilla @cilla

    • Good morning Jane and thank you. There are Lidl everywhere down here ;-) I hope your plants arrive today and you can play. I wonder if my courgettes will have produced when I return home ;-) Enjoy your day :-)

      • Good morning Jane and Cilla – did I hear the hallowed name of Sarah Raven mentioned? I have only bought bulbs from that source, but they were top notch. Glad to hear their plants are equally good. I’d love to order some, but I am going to have to move all plants away from the front house wall to have rough-casting re-done, so simply no room for…[Read more]

        • Afternoon Jane Cills and Bean…just about to leave work and go to Mozzas…I pass on the way home so its not too bad

  • @cilla have you had a good time so far?

    • Morning Jane. Somerleyton was a little disappointing garden wise. Couldn’t take photos in the house but the 3 guides were excellent ane we didn’t have to hang around listening to boring anecdotes ;-) No idea where we are going today so hoping our hostess can tell us some nice places. We will drive up the coast buT hopefully find some wildlife…[Read more]

      • Morning Cilla :-) good fish and chips are always worth a trip :good: You’re sure to find wildlife – even seals if you want a boat trip! Enjoy a carefree day :notacloudinsight:

    @cilla Thanks Cilla :-) it worked :good: :rose:

  • gertie posted an update 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    Am trying a less exuberant flapjack @cilla ….so far so good :good:

  • Morning clickers :-) work is all finished for now and so I’m just waiting for payment ;-) One cosmos opened yesterday – I love seeing pictures of gardens with lots of them just waving around in the sun and have tried desperately to get that effect (Cilla had such a pic on recently @cilla ) but I’m obviously rubbish with this particular plant! Not…[Read more]

    • Good morning Jane. I’ve had the same result with cosmos this year, partly weather and partly placing. I’m sure it is the sort of plant that does well in an open meadow, but not on the edge of a tree canopy buried beside a blue hosta in Scottish greyness. When the dead tree comes down, I’ll perhaps have more luck in the open space. Wisley needs…[Read more]

      • Yes, I saw that about Wisley as well Jane, and quite agree Sheila, the road noise is pretty serious already. First garden our Hayley took me to, on the way back from the airport and I was very impressed. :good:

    • Ah good, you have no work and are heading to the garden, in fact you’ve probably been there for hours! :good: Enjoy.

  • gertie posted an update 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    How is the hedgehog Cilla? :rose:

    • Morning Anne. The hedgehog is, apparently, a feisty pregnant lady weighing over a kilo and making a nest in a pillow in the kitchen of my friend’s cattery :-) A hedgehog lady went to see it yesterday and deflead and wormed it. Hogies name is now Dizzy! I don’t know how long she will stay there but the heavy rain won’t be god for her looking to…[Read more]

  • Hi Cilla @cilla Can you compare the two shrubs you gave me please – the pink hebe, I know but the label washed off the other and as I’ve only just planted it in the front border, I’m hoping it’s not a tree :nailbiting: Ta :-)

  • gertie posted an update 2 months, 4 weeks ago

    @cilla Cilla, have just watched Monty Don and there was a flower, Thalictrum delavayi var.decorum, tall stems topped with little frothy pink flowers. I thought it was something that you mentioned recently but couldn’t remember the name of. Did you notice it ? [ ref Gardeners’ World tonight ] :rose:

  • gertie posted an update 3 months ago

    These are the blue geraniums on Blue Hill ….. Rozanne I think ….. @cilla :rose:

    • I took a photo on my tablet of “two” Rozannes…….but it looks as if I have been sold a dud with one of them. Will put the pic on in the morning.

      • :good: when advertised Cilla only the prefect shapes and multi-flowered ones get shown :lol: with less :lol: greenery round them!
        be interested to see, as I think that there are several blue ones slightly different from each other, and I had to check to make sure these were Rozanne :confused: :rose:

  • VegVamp posted an update 3 months, 1 week ago

    Grey, wet, mizzly, horrible, dreich. :disappointed: Feel like doing a Sheila howl of despair :-( AND I need to go and do the shopping. Surely the day has to improve? :confused: Hope you are all having a better day, certainly sounds like Cilla is having a ball; the anticipation of a new “journey/garden/scenery” blog for her, when she gets home,…[Read more]

  • VegVamp posted an update 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    Morning Gang, wall to wall grey and soft rain, that has been on for hours and looks parked for the day, if not days. :disappointed:
    Hope Cilla’s is getting better for her trip; have a safe journey and a great time petal. :good: :cool: @cilla Have a good day all. :-)

    • Morning Karen :-) not nice weather for you – hope it improves quickly. I picked some rasps yesterday and had to throw a lot away as the rain and humidity together is making them go mouldy quickly :-( Am working today – what about you? Had an internet meltdown yesterday for some reason and will start work in a mo in case it happens again. Have a…[Read more]

      • Morning Jane, think I’m turning into a raspberry/strawberry. :lol: Gorgeous glut of them, but you’re right, they don’t keep, pick and eat immediately. :good: Very little on today, so might be a book and faffing day, after the pool. ;-) Wonder what happened your internet? Good luck with the work.

        • Book a big window for a big faff then :lol: OH ‘fixed it’ at 7pm but he thinks it’s just coincidence that Plusnet/BT had put the plug back in at the same time ;-) Enjoy your swim and faff (swaff?)!

          • Swaf, love it :lol:

            • Hi Petal, I’m still here, we shan’t leave until after nine and the weather up there says :pissing-down: so am not full of joy as yet ;-) Your day sounds “swaffingly” good, enjoy. If my friend doesn’t pick my courgettes I shall be on the soup making on my return :lol:

            • Not so clever about the rain for you, but :fingers-crossed: it will improve. Enjoy yourselves. :rose:

    • Now we see the wisdom of the care with which Cilla chooses rain jackets and boots. I have seen hapless holiday makers wandering about with their heads sticking out of holes in black plastic rubbish sacks. It is not a good look, and our Cilla will shine in such company. Have a good break, Cilla – and haste ye back.

    • And a good wet morning to Karen and Jane and everyone else with their noses pressed to the window pane…..stay dry.

  • gertie posted an update 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    @cilla What’s up Doc? It sometimes takes me ages to get a pic on…I think it might be something to do with ‘traffic’ at the time…don’t give up. I know that Karen will help, or Walt or Tony or Jane…wish I could :disappointed: :rose: ..
