 Happy Mothers Day to all my gardening friends!!! I got a beautiful Tree Peony from my eldest !!!! I cant wait to plant it but am holding back as I think the soil may be a bit cold yet. I had found my very first daf in bloom today but as it was such a good day I decided that something had to be done to clean up the deck. It was a mess and covered in green which made it very slippy when it got wet. So we moved everything on to the lawn - swept it down and then got the Power Washer out. It looks so much bettter. Had to peel off my clothes after as I was soaked to the skin!!! And freezing!!! During the big clean up, my one and only daf in bloom got battered by the power hose!!! Sods law!!!!!

Lol. I was going to spend some time power washing today myself. But you know yourself. Time......  Hope you had a good Mothers Day. Good to see you back after your LONG hibernation!!!!!!!!

Don't worry, you'll soon have lots more daffs.

What colour will the flowers be on the tree peony?  Liga and I both bought the same colour one, but in two different garden centres for two different prices!

Power hosing can be a bit harsh on some plants if you let it near them,  welcome back also.
