Colour left in my garden

20 comments


My main borders are a mess so I’m showing only my good bits

Rather like this fuchsia, it’s in a big pot on my patio nearest the house.

My favourite fern.

Climbing fuchsia, red one trying to reach the extension roof!


Not much else to look at I’m afraid:-) Just thought I would put pic of shizostylus on. does everyones look like this, very weak stemmed or am I doing something wrong?

It's my beds Sandra, need so much work. deutzia to go and wild thing rose which lives up to its name. Both been in some years now, but roots go to Australia:-( I have a go each day. Don't suppose you know a fit young man who loves gardening? :-)

I notice Bloomer didn't suggest Russell - perhaps he didn't fit the criterial!!

You have such a pretty garden Ba and the fuschias are gorgeous. I love the blend of colours in the fifth picture and I too love ferns.

Enjoy the many lovely places in your garden and don't worry about the other bits. Tackle them very, very gradually. Our beds get the better of us every year especially from about late July onwards!!!

Looks fab BA, the shot of pink at the bottom in third pic looks amazing, is that the sun shining on it? Looks very inspirational :-))

Ha ha ,Chris,,were you making sure I didn't miss your comment ? Sometimes,I do need telling twice Lol ..Russell is passing on his skills to a younger generation now,or so he would have me believe !

Just noticed Dl, even my slabs look a bit pinky. Pink seems to have been my theme this summer:-)
Now Bloomer and Wildrose, you're both as bad as each other ... no one offered me a fit young man:-( Guess what, Wild thing rose gone, but gave up on getting deutzia out so got saw out and it's about 3 inches from soil level. Feeling pleased with myself :-}

Well.that was a job well done,Ba..and you are right to feel pleased ,no need for a fit young man after all..who needs em ! :o)

15 Sep, 2019

 

Well done Ba, just don't overdo it!
Pace yourself!!
And, if a young man should turn up any day soon, have the fork and spade and saw ready!!

Thanks for the good advice Chris, I'll be ready to pounce:-)

Bottler said hello Lol,,,

Flippin' bottler, bane of my life. Still cant get his pony out of my garden;-)

23 Sep, 2019

 

Is that where the pony is. Bottler said he lost him and he has been up and down Ireland and the UK looking for him. Don't worry Ba, the next time I see bottler I will tell him where to get poney.

23 Sep, 2019

 

NOOOOOO I'll send the pony back to you and you can give him to Bottler. I never want to see that man again!!!!
