This morning saw me at the lumber jacking as a favour to next door. An early start (for me) 9am on the job. Finished at 3pm absolutely shattered from chainsawing and dragging deag wood about.

Almost fell asleep after dinner but the garden called and I roused myself eventually. Took some photos first, is'nt it amazing how plants appear to "arrive" within a short period? The Hostas I planted in the shady corner are all back with some vigour as Fran I think said they would. The other bits n bobs just caught my eye.

I like the one of the single Bumble Bee in the Polmonium (hope i got the name correct whatever about the spelling) it was so busy sipping up that nectar it never even noticed me.

Planted out the Liatris in various positions as you all recommended (clumps) and some Cosmos that were ready. Tomatoes from seed got potted on to.

The veg garden had Parsnips, Carrots and Peas seen to as well. Happy days and Happy gardening all. Rain forcast tonight :(

First and second earlies in

Today was a gardeners delight but as always I ended up doing twenty jobs at once . The potatoes are in finally first and second earlies, peas are almost ready for final planting out having being seeded indoors. The new aldi greenhouse has proven its worth as I have already planted out hollyhocks, geraniums, calendula and some fushia cuttings . 

What are these ????

Noticed many if these young shoots among a new rose border , they look "planted" but for the life of me I can't remember doing ang planting here. I did take two days to remove a large shrub From the same spot. Could they be gladioli as I seem to remember young glad beginning like this ??
