Added a few photos to my May Album because with this terrible weather the photos maybe the only things that will survive. It must be the good weather that we had in April that has brought flowers on so well.  We are opening the garden in June for a charity day but if this weather continues there will be very little in flower.

A Mixed Day

This morning the weather was dreadful, wet and dull so decided to make use of my time and ater dropping John to work went to Tramore and collected seaweed for my Chatham Island Forget me Not. Despite the windy weather of the last few days there was not that much seaweed washed up, but did get a good trug full.

I also potted on my tomatoes into large pots and have put them in the small glasshouse. I had a few alpine plants and got them planted into troughs and WASHED all the pots, a job I hate doing. There was a little sun during the afternoon for a while but the dull weather has retutned.

Will possible spent the rest of the evening entering competitions for tickets to Bloom.

I enjoyed Gardener's World tonigt with the visit to the Malvern Show. It was a pity that the programme was only a thirty minute slot. Enjoyed the section with Carol looking at the new plant introductions, loved the geum.

If you missed Beechgrove Gardens on Thursday night be sure to watch it on Sunday morning as it has a vist to a beautiful garden in East Lothian, Scotland.

Have put some photos of yellow magnolias, a change from the pink and white ones.
