All looking really great and looks like will have a massive leg up from the mild winter!

Ive currently got window sills, full of canna seedlings and ensetes....Im tempted to leave them out but my brain say NOPE.

All looking pretty damn good icon_thumleft
Still not sure about the bright coloured skulls, but the darker ones fit well.
I'm still after a mekong, but finances dictate otherwise! Looking closely at the photos do I detect a small area where it's possible to shoehorn something else in? :wink:
my name is flounder, but you can call me.............flounder! (or Gary, just don't call me late for dinner)

Wow! Love the intense jungle feel - personally I could never sacrifice my "entire" lawn though! - Was that a Fargesia Scabrida i saw? If so - how would you rate its growth rate - and its robustness in some wind?

Great plant shots, not sure about the skulls but whatever rocks your boat.

Here in London the flowers are a bit more advanced, some 2 weeks ahead.

Nice pics Mr L.

I managed to have a fairly productive day myself, fixed the fence and tidied out the greenhouse. I've now got space for seeds and rhizomes to go in in a few weeks. I've also tidied and repotted my collies.

I have been the phantom couch grass destroyer... :lol: :lol: what a....??? of a job but the border certainly looks better without it.

My ordered bag of poo turned up today for the roses, just waiting on two bags of compost.

Couch grass is horrible stuff.

I have managed to get some in my grass border and this is the best time of year to get rid of it as it comes up before the ornamental grasses.
