What a let down!


Gorgeous day yesterday and expecting the same today so i left all the furniture cushions out! Woke upto rain this morning and its still Chucking it down, Ive just been running around trying to find room to let the cushions drip dry, seat cushions (6), sun bed cushions(2) and scatter cushions(5) also fleece blankets. This weather is so frustrating grrrr…
Anyway i tackled a little project yesterday that ive been wanting to do for weeks, it involves Staghorn ferns and mounting them onto wood, i had everything for the job except chickenwire, have you saw the price of it in the GCs? I ended up cadging some from a neighbour, i only needed a little bit.

Small one on the pergola, close up and further back..

A bigger one on the fence by the shed..

And My big daddy hostas beside the succulent pot are gonna be huge this year..

On the plus side, i dont have to water the garden this morning :)

Oops! should never trust British weather Dee,I always bring mine in even in the middle of summer.
Great idea with the ferns by the way and the Hosta is looking good too, as is the rest of your garden.

Sorry to hear your furniture got soaked. Those staghorn ferns look great and I love your acers.

It's been a lovely warm dry day in Cheshire:) Got loads done in the garden but weary now. Cleared a lot of ground cover and planted summer things. I hardly recognise the main border but it'll take a while for everything to settle in.

Apparently better tomorrow Paul and next week, We will see.
Im happy you got the promised warm weather Louisa, Summer plants, yes thats whats needed, when you get your energy back, post some pics of your main border, I bet its Fab..

Thanks YDD, I'll leave it a few days to settle and not look so newly planted, then take some pics:) I'm hoping the slugs don't eat everything!

That hosta is a splendid one and looks wonderful next to that very special pot.
I think your cushions will be nice and dry by now.
