Hello don't faint it's me!


After a long time away I am back, not sure how often I’ll be on here but we will see.
Just been catching up with everyone.

Have just been ordering some plants I want to fill the long border (as I call it) with Perennials so not too much weeding to do (she said hopefully!) I have ordered some grasses and some Delphiniums, a Clematis called Omishoro that I liked the look of and a Honeysuckle Lonicera Japonica.

I’ve also got seeds sown in my new mini greenhouse annual flowers, Nasturtiums, sunflowers etc., and some tomato seeds they’re in the kitchen though, too cold outside.

I now have a man who comes once a fortnight to do the digging and cut the grass for me as I’m afraid I can no longer do that but I still enjoy ‘pottering’ and sowing seeds, planting and looking through plant catalogues!

Oh and yes we still have Rocky he is 5 this year and is a Novice trick dog working towards his Intermediate trick dog certificate ?

Hi S'killa its good to see you and Rocky again, I love Delphiniums, they can get really tall and bloom for weeks, should do well planted along the fence with the grasses, have you got any perenial stocks, also a lovely flower another that would soon fill out as well, hope your seedlings do ok for you..
Thats a smashing photo of a very handsome Rocky..
