Drought TT - surely they wouldn't dare ;)
All looking good though. It's been dry up here for a couple of days - even managed to get a bit of fence painting done today.

Lovely garden pictures everything looking splendid TT I'm glad you had a nice sunny day, I see your boys share your sense of humour with their watering cans - they shouldn't need them this side of next Christmas the amount of rain we've had :o)

That heather tower is brilliant - you have such great imagination Terra. The winter jasmine is lovely cascading down like that. Coronilla is amazing - it was always out in January when we used to go to Exmouth - must get around to getting a plant one of these days. Would it be happy in part shade?

9 Jan, 2014

 

Once again you delight me with your lovely garden and furry friends my hellebors are all taking of as well and some bulbs as well can't wait for the spring. :o)

A lovely blog Tt. I love that Coronilla and the Magic Marlot. What lovely colour around your garden....lucky you. Great planting though on your part. Nice to see the boys prepared for all eventualities. You know what they say....fail to prepare- prepare to fail. The boys have it in hand, or should that be mouth. :o))
