I was thinking of you and your garden earlier this morning, I want to buy daffodil bulbs! I know they will be a pain, literally, to plant 😊 your garden is beautiful and it is lovely to 'see' you back here. Xris x

jimmyw123 in reply to Hidden

HI XRIS,

The bulbs i put in last year [about october ] i just stuck the brush pole in the ground and dropped a few bulbs in, i never thought they would flower as it was such a hashy job.. but they did :)

many thanks iris, im back, but still a good bit to improve,,

good luck with the bulbs, :)

love jimmy xxx :)

Lovely Jimmy. No wonder you are always getting into trouble for going straight from hospital to your garden. It really does look a delight.

Oh my friend Rib :) Hope things are going ok Rib, im dead tired just answering these posts :D

I was thinking of getting the pulmonary re-hab team to come to my place and help me :D ..........but they wouldnt :D

Many thanks rib,i did my best :)

take good care now,, jimmy :)

You put me to shame, Jimmy ....look at the edges to that lawn...and those baskets , beautiful. I have been trying to lop some overhanging branches on my ornamental cherry tree today and gave up.

You are an inspiration, like Dall05 and his walks

jimmyw123 in reply to knitter

och many thanks knitter, :)

i have standy upy :) shears for the border, but i would be scared to put a pic. on of the front garden,,lovely weeds, my excuse, good for the wee birds :D

Dall does far better than me, he really is an inspiration, what he does is anything but easy, but he does it in a great light hearted way.

What a wonderful garden Jimmy, I absolutely love it :)

The kiss of the sun for pardon,

The song of the birds for mirth,

One is nearer God's heart in a garden

Than anywhere else on earth.

Thank you, undine xxx jimmy

That is a delight to behold Jimmy; give yourself a pat on the back because I thought the garden would have to go whistle this year with all the problems you had. Talk about "We shall overcome" laddie - you certainly have! So much rain here Lake District one end of garden and loch Lomond the other, sunny for five minutes then another drenching, nowhere left for it to drain. Ah well, next year maybe?

Mine is still a work in progress. Many years of bad summers, broken bones - mine, strained ligaments - husbands. Plus side, the foxgloves are beautiful. Host of whites and purples. Sow thistles and ragweed. It's a naturalist's dream. Foxes, squirrels and once, a newt.
