You could do with some cabbages and runner beans and maybe a nice marrow? I have spare tomato plants as well...

Scroblene said...

That looks great Lilith!

You'll bless the day you're on a slope - less far to bend with all that work in later life...

Lilith said...

I have a small handkerchief out the front too Mutley, and have considered it as a veg garden...sprouts by the front door :)

It does wonders for the hamstrings Scroblene. I hope to have a flatter plot when I is old.

Tuscan Tony said...

Blue sky? Bank Holiday weekend must have been over when you took it.

Ratty. said...

Very nice garden Lilith are you sure you're not Alan Titchmarsh .

I thought all gardens in England had an old Ford Cortina minus wheels and giant Hog Weeds growing!

Scroblene said...

Evening Lilith,

At the risk of being a total a*** and a gardening bore; when we had some steps and bits like yours, Mrs S planted some 'Mind you own business', (sic) which can take the hardness from steps and concrete slabs etc.

The link is here, but I reckon you probably know all this anyway.

...and Rats Mr Ratty...

Lilith said...

No, TT I live in a micro climate!

I am allergic to Alan T. I have a couple of his books in the house with the dust jacket turned inwards...I cannot bear his idiot face. I am a bumbling "let's try this weird looking plant here" type gardener.


The steps ARE ugly Scroblene. But down here that stuff is soo invasive that I would spend too much time unearthing my beds from its pretty green blanket.

Lilith said...

No rats in the garden Mutley, a hedgehog, and a pair of wrens yesterday...lots of blackbirds.

The rats are all next door.

Hello there Fatty!

Long time since I last paid you a wisit.
I have my feet comfortably under the table of a grieving young widow these days. Stop by if you fancy a game of strip backgammon.

Beautiful garden, Lilith. You make me feel guilty as we have a tiered garden too.

Lilith said...

You have a young family EK. No time for gardening. This has grown up over 3 years of inconsistant pottering...it was a clay pit of builders rubble under the shadow of a huge ash tree. It suits tough buggers like foxgloves, rock roses and geraniums.

Lilith said...

Lucien! You are alive! And as dastardly as ever!

Newmania said...

You are such a sweety Lillith, sorry not around much recently

Tuscan Tony said...

Lilith, are you anywhere near Somerton or Langport, nearest market towns to the Tuscan outlaws?

Lilith said...

No TT, only near in the sense that it takes 45 minutes to get everywhere from here. We is in the North East.

Lilith said...

My K, have you gone Bulgarian? I miss you so.

love Mullahx

hatfield girl said...

Um, I was going to say something about the steps but have intruded (I think) whoops, sneaks out.

Lilith said...

No HG, you haven't intruded...that was the first time I have heard from my little girl in a week, and I think she may be ordering a salad without tomatos...

If you have anything to say about the steps I would love to hear it before I stencil daisies on them or some such kitchery.

Tuscan Tony said...

The first Mrs Tuscan now lives (?still?) in Backwell, near Nailsea

Tuscan Tony said...

You should do a weekly or fortnightly post on your garden focusing on different areas of interest.

Lilith said...

Did you impregnate the first Mrs Tuscan TT?

Tuscan Tony said...

No, not as far as I know.....

Lilith said...

Nailsea is just Soooo alternative..is she a hippy?

Tuscan Tony said...

Nope, though I do believe she was a member of the Nailsea Running Club!

She is (well, was 9 years ago when I last saw her to hand over the final one of a series of large cheques) the spitting, spitting image of Ms. Samantha Fox (face & bod, lucky lucky TT!)

Ms Smack said...

oh, its so pretty! I'm completely jealous. Do you have wind-chimes? i do. i love them!

Lilith said...

I have at least 3 sets of wind chimes Ms Smack :)
