A spot of gardening



Today I heaved some compost around for the mum while she potted up some of the new plants we got yesterday, also re potted some of the old ones. I got to mess around with drill again whilst drilling holes in the new pots for the sweet pea, which I will photograph once they have grown up the willow trellis that we also purchased. I  took the opportunity to take some photographs once my slave like duties were over.

  1. My, my - those are just gorgeous! The flowers on my front porch are starting to fade out and I've been considering planting some mums but that's about as far as I've gotten with the project - considering! Perhaps I should put you to work when you're here?!?

  5. I love the colage, beautiful colours! I never know the names of plants either. Seriously, I plant them in the ground lose the tags, and often refer to them by made up names ;) I dont think it really matters, however It often leaves me desperatly trying to come up with interesting ways to avoid the names in my posts! LOL! Thanks for stopping by!

    Happy GTS!
    ps. I really like your header.

  12. Claire, thanks so much for stopping by earlier. It's always a pleasure.

    I stumbled across an old post of your (Me, me, me and me again) and offered up a bit of explanation of the phenomenon. But since I don't know if you get comments from that far back, I thought it'd be best if I left you one somewhere current to point you to it.

    If your travels to the Colonies should bring you near the Mid-Atlantic region, look me up. And if not, well, I'll be looking forward to many more exchanges here in blogospace.

  19. Beautiful! All of my hard work is starting to fade and go to seed. It doesn't help that it was over 100 degrees last week.
