"What's All This Stuff You've Got In Pots" He Said...


By sueb


More colours appearing in the garden every morning I love this time of year.

More pictures from my garden

Market buys £2.50 each!

What’s all this stuff in pots asked my OH yesterday as he limped restlessly down the garden towards my greenhouse.(He’s feeling sorry for himself he had a knee operation on Wednesday and has to keep going for little walks ) Those my dear are plants things to look at and things to eat. I could see from the disapproving look on his face something else was coming “Why have you got so much crammed in here you don’t need that many.” To keep me happy and out of your study dear I said. He grumbles something
unrepeatable and hobbled off back to his books. I just smiled at him and carried on planting more pots of "Stuff’!
Have a good gardening weekend.

I'm doing alright Sue thank you. How are you? I've missed GoY and all the lovely chats too.
Of course, Yellow Loosestrife. I thought it might be but I wasn't sure. Have you grown it before? I have heard that it can be a bit invasive. It's lovely though. :o)
