It was ideal plotting weather…

this week but this morning is damp and dull so I’ll just be taking a look round later.

The rose Pretty Lady is starting to flower profusely which is always lovely to see.

Lots of the annual flower seedlings are appearing including self-seeded nasturtiums.

It’s good to see bees buzzing round the comfrey flowers.

Earlier this month I got a brief mention in Walton Sheds blog post Growing Your Own – Tips From the Experts which was appreciated, although I don’t consider myself an expert.  It’s worth taking a look as there is lots of excellent advice by fellow GYO bloggers.

It looks like it’s going to be a sunny and warm Bank Holiday weekend so I’ll be planting out the various things that I started off in pots at home and been taking to the plot during the week to harden off.

Have a good weekend!

    Both this morning and yesterday morning started off quite chilly and dull but it came out beautiful yesterday and the sun’s shining now too. Nice to see Pretty Lady flowering, I’ve got the first flower out on my Golden Wings rose.

    We’ve had a few dry (and hot) days here in Kentucky recently, so it’s been a rush to get things planted. Do you cut your comfrey back? It’s nice to see the self-seeded plants we want reappear! Pretty Lady is lovely.

      Liz it would be nice to have some settled gardening weather. Yes once it’s finished flowering I cut it right back then add to the compost heap, it grows back again surprisingly quickly. It sure is. xx

    The roses are indeed lovely. The colour is so gentle and sweet to look at.
    It is always good to see wildlife around. They make gardens feel more lively.
    Congrats on the mention, Flighty! I think it is wise to grow less but better.
    Thanks and a good weekend to you too.

  5. I must take more care to harden off seedlings as I am always in too much of a hurry to plant out and they shrivel up in protest!

  6. ‘Pretty Lady’ is a very pretty looking rose indeed – such a lovely colour.

    All the best Jan

    Oh that rose, she’s absolute perfection. Lovely to see bees on your comfrey, it’s well ahead of mine which is in full shade next to the compost heap. I was watching them on the raspberries and tayberries earlier though, always so industrious. Wishing you a lovely weekend with lots of sunshine. CJ xx

    • Flighty says:

      CJ she sure is. I agree, it seems to have grown and flowered very quickly. Good to see the bees on the soft fruit. Thanks, and for you too. xx

  9. Pretty Lady is a winner! Sounds like all is on track down the lottie. 🙂

    Good to hear you got a mention! Pretty lady really is a fantastic rose, nothing seems to damage her. Wonderful to see those pristine blooms. xxx

    Well done on the mention – I think you are incredibly knowledgeable!
    Love, love, love this rose and your header too, such a soft ethereal colour, perfect for a bunch for a lovely lady friend *blush*, haha. Isn’t it great to see and hear all the bees, I love them. Toby likes to chase them but if he catches up to one he loses all bravado and just stares haha. Silly pup. xx

    • Flighty says:

      Carrie thanks, that’s kind of you to say. I’m glad that you like the rose, I don’t generally pick any blooms but would certainly make an exception. I’m always happy to see and hear bees on the plot. What you say about Toby has me smiling. xx
