@zigs, what is that delicate, tiny blue flower? (Do you think it is low enough to live under the mower? I would seed the lawn with that!!! :love:)

It's a Speedwell, they evolved to survive grazing so it would and does survive the mower :)

The leaf rosettes look like little cabbages and I used to pick them and put them in the back of my toy land rover and pretend I was taking them to market when I was a Ziglet :giggle:

It's a shame that all that effort can be subject to the weather you experience.

Here in the "Tropic of Trafford" (I call it that as we are in South Manchester/North Cheshire sheltered by hills on three sides) we never get really cold weather. All we've had this year is a sprinkling of snow and on Monday I was playing golf in "short sleeves."

But we probably get more than our fair share of rain. Like for the last two days and more is expected tomorrow.

I've been looking for things to do. So I cleared out a lot of "dead filing" and had a burn up in my incinerator on the small patio behind the shed. Incinerators are great as you can use them even if it's raining.

Hello Sean, gardening beside the Rocky Mountains is a challenge this time of year. I like your burn barrel.

9:15pm and I just poked my nose out the back door, I can hear the sirens on the Queen Elizabeth highway, people are crashing their cars, the blizzard has been raging for a few hours now.

The azaleas hedge that grows round our tiny front lawn is coming into bloom.

The red azaleas to the side of the patio are out, the white ones will follow.

The first rhodo to flower. The one to the right won't flower until August.

These two tree azaleas won't be long to flower now.

This "well trained" wisteria is nearly there.

This Amber clematis, new to us last year, is spreading rapidly.

All in all, we ain't looking too shabby.
