I was surprised…

to find that I was all alone on the site this morning as there’s always been a few others there over the past two months or so.

I’ve been waiting for the primroses in the long planter to finish flowering so that I could lift, divide and replant them. From one each pink, white and yellow plants I’ve now got three of each plus some small ones.  The pink ones have gone into the stone feature replacing a smaller one that I’d planted in it not long ago.  The white and yellow ones have gone back in the long planter.

The gladioli in two containers are doing well.  The red flowering Splendid are the top ones, with the smaller pale yellow Lemon Frizzle below.

Today’s Flighty’s favourite pot marigold is this yellow one, with lots more on the way.

Take care, and have a good weekend!

    You got on with quite a few horticultural jobs. Hope your plotting neighbours are okay and that it might have just been the change in your weather that kept them away. Although, as you- in Englandshire – are allowed to travel some distance to visit people in open spaces now, some people may have taken the opportunity to catch up with friends and family. 🙂 xxxx

      Menhir there’s always something to do. I’m sure they are okay and as you say the weather change may be the reason. That could well be why they were absent. xx

  2. Do you like it when you are there alone? When I was going to the allotment myself I used to go on purpose very early. Partly it was to do with not liking to work in the heat but mostly it was because I like it when no-one else is around.

    Hope all is well with your fellow plotters. The gladioli are looking good. Just love your marigold. It’s great getting free plants isn’t it? xxx

    I much prefer the company of Robins and Blackbirds ! 🙂 I have been thinking of splitting up my primroses too . Glad you are keeping well . Daisy Debs 🙂 x

    Love your sunny pot marigold. I find, when I am working alone at the herb garden my garden club maintains as its civic project, that I get more done. Otherwise, those of us in attendance tend to stop and chatter! Both nice, but different.

    My primroses could do with dividing, that’s a job I shall have to put on the list now that you’ve reminded me. The lovely thing about your Flighty’s Favourites is that there’s such a selection amongst them, so many different colours.

    • Flighty says:

      Jo I was surprised how easy it was to divide them, and how many I ended up with. I agree, and think that there’s at least a dozen colour combinations. xx

    Everything is looking very green and healthy out there. The gladioli are looking particularly good. Something I’d like to grow one day, they’re always very striking. Hope you have a good weekend. CJ xx

    • Flighty says:

      CJ I wish that it all was, the raspberries certainly aren’t looking good. I’m making sure they get plenty of water. Good for you, they’re lovely flowers.
      Thanks, and you too. xx

    Good to see everything doing and going well there! Lovely marigold!
    Thanks and you too!

    Why don’t I remember your growing glads?! Hope they do well for you. They get tremendously lanky here and require staking or massing to keep them upright.
