Mixed up.

19 July 2011 14:49:04
Another plant that i got is a bit mixed up but don,t mind as i really love them all.
Monkells Monkells 19 July 2011 14:49:58

Gorgeous - Mine are only starting to open!!!

Hoeys Hoeys 19 July 2011 14:56:13

love them... gorgeous colour.

Moya Moya 19 July 2011 17:32:38

Lovely big blowsy Delphimiums - I could never get enough of them!

Some if mine well gone over, others just opening. They even survived the wind for the most part as I had them staked unlike some of the other plants.

fran m fran m 19 July 2011 21:53:33

A great rich colour

andyf7 andyf7 19 July 2011 21:56:56

they are so showy and brightens up any area. 

Mairin Mairin 22 July 2011 23:54:09

I have had delphimiums but I haven't been able to get them to survive any winter, regardless of how mild the winter is.  So I am envious of anyone with them, even if you did mix them up. 

Scrubber Scrubber 01 August 2011 21:22:18

This is a lovely one! Not mixed up at all!

First one to open.

19 July 2011 14:44:53
This is the first lily to open for me,have seen loads of gorgous ones over the past couple of weeks,so glad mine has started.Heading away for week now so hope you all have a good gardening week.

Doing well.

My hands are just getting back to them selves now,lovely in monaghan today.After the bit of rain the weeds are easy pulled out,so i am at that job now.This little bed at front door is doing really well,once i got the slugs under control(if there is such a thing).My new project needs loads more done in it but need more time and plants and energy.

Jacinta D Jacinta D 13 July 2011 21:48:18

Love the bronze foliage of that rose. Oooh you poor thing. Hope you'll be ok tomorrow.

Thanks Jacinta,that was a wee rose that i bought at a market,think i paid round 3.99,the colour dosn,t really come up it,s true colour,it,s more an orange red colour.

Hosta Hosta 13 July 2011 22:12:30

Sounds like a hard day but not doubt you got great satisfaction out of it, you deserve a nice beer or maybe even two.  Lovely rose

Clara Clara 13 July 2011 22:19:58

Well a good soak with a little drink after will but you right, that rose is a stunner.

Monkells Monkells 13 July 2011 22:43:26

Smashing rose!!! Hard but good work!!

Moya Moya 13 July 2011 23:38:07

You can feel very virtuous now - you've put in the hard graft.

Keego Keego 13 July 2011 23:55:50

boots boots 14 July 2011 18:14:51

Hazel,between the two girls i was in and out of the heat all day.But it was very hot when i was out.ok,plenty of cream on.

Scrubber Scrubber 14 July 2011 23:00:52

Hope hands are better soon. Beer taken internally is the best cure. personally I would favour jameson but not after such a warm day! Well done!
