Otium cum dignitate.
You could do with some cabbages and runner beans and maybe a nice marrow? I have spare tomato plants as well...
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...
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.
Blue sky? Bank Holiday weekend must have been over when you took it.
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!
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.http://www.bbc.co.uk/gardening/plants/plant_finder/plant_pages/868.shtml
...and Rats Mr Ratty...
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.
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.http://beavershott.blogspot.com/Lucien
Beautiful garden, Lilith. You make me feel guilty as we have a tiered garden too.
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.
Lucien! You are alive! And as dastardly as ever!
You are such a sweety Lillith, sorry not around much recently
Lilith, are you anywhere near Somerton or Langport, nearest market towns to the Tuscan outlaws?
No TT, only near in the sense that it takes 45 minutes to get everywhere from here. We is in the North East.
salata shopska molya, ne domate
My K, have you gone Bulgarian? I miss you so.love Mullahx
Um, I was going to say something about the steps but have intruded (I think) whoops, sneaks out.
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.
The first Mrs Tuscan now lives (?still?) in Backwell, near Nailsea
You should do a weekly or fortnightly post on your garden focusing on different areas of interest.
Did you impregnate the first Mrs Tuscan TT?
No, not as far as I know.....
Nailsea is just Soooo alternative..is she a hippy?
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!)
oh, its so pretty! I'm completely jealous. Do you have wind-chimes? i do. i love them!
I have at least 3 sets of wind chimes Ms Smack :)
