Beautiful Day But No Gardening Done

Fiery Beauty

Fiery Beauty

What a fantastic day really hot in the sun but by the time we'd cleared up after catering for 30 riding club members and talking to them I really didn't have the energy. Fabulous sunset this evening hope it's heralding tomorrow as another good day, Posted up an album for roses and lilies both are really starting to put on a real show still lots more to open. Planted lilies into pots which have been placed in beds with others in beds especially the south bed that are going to really shine.

Does planting lillies into pots (after catering for 30!) not count as gardening? It does imn my book! Ill try to get a pics of that hazel wood for you!

Thoses Lilies look great Geraldine.. where'd you get them?  by the sound of your day I'm not suprised you got no gardening done!!

Thanks everyone it really is a great colour , have more to open yet that look as though they will be similar. Scrubber the lilies were planted in pots back in the spring and I have moved them out to different places in the garden some in terracotta pots but a couple in plastic pots and placed into beds behind other lower plants. Bill I'm not sure if they came from Lidl or B&Q must have a look back to my earlier journals as I think I listed bulbs I'd bought. Yesterday I really wanted to get out for a while in the garden but I was just too tired but today was great here so quite a few plants from waiting now put into beds.
