Finally able to get outside! warm too, decided to move the old computer table into my shed as the seedlings etc., have all been outside now for over a week, hubby put up a shelf in the shed for me and i got it all tidied up, put every thing back in, then stopped for lunch. After lunch and a read of the papers (full of politicians claiming for stupid things, disgusting) moved my metal corner shelf into the sunny corner just outside the lounge window, i put on the black eyed susan and some Fuchsias. Potted on some Penstenom seedlings, potted up the tomatoes, swept up the yard put my little drainpipe pots onto the drainpipe (its the soil pipe actually) i have 3 of them and they just fasten to the pipe with a rubber collar thingy!! they have swan river daisies in and a lobelia (upright) should look quite pretty i hope! Went back out after lunch and someone was fast asleep on the chair out of the shed LOL!

Hope you all had a lovely sunny day too, roll on tomorrow when i hope to finally get the grass cut!

Wonder what Swan River daisies look like. We have the Swan River here in Perth, lol.
Lovely to be busy out in the garden in sunshine.

Marguerite - the Swan River Daisy (Brachyscome Iberidifolia) is native to Western and central Australia - it was found in the collection of Australian plants of Baron Von Hugel collected in the Swan River area in 1837. Its an annual that grows to around 30cm high and 45cm wide and has quite fine narrow leaves. It gets masses of tiny purple, blue or white flowers from spring to early summer that are about 2cm across. There have been many named hybrids produced in Europe - but we still get the native daisy in our nurseries. I've got lots of it growing now in many of my potted annuals - its a gorgeous little thing.

Glad you've had some sunshine and warmth now. Another lovely day here, too warm to sit outside really. That puss-cat certainly has the right idea.

I have a great fridge magnet that says:

"If you want the warmest spot in the house look for the cat!" Lol!!
