summ---er garden pics.if we get that summer.

FRONT BOARDER




FIRST YEAR FOR THESE CARNATIONS,GIVEN A LOVELY SHOW




BUSY LIZZIES AND PETUNIAS,WITH SOME TUBEROUS BGONIAS














AHEM. YES WELL,hangs head in shame,lol. it was cheap ok.very cheap.cost me £5,99,which is around 10 bucks for Lucy and jack,lol.its resin,sun dial as you can see,stands around 4 foot tall.the gnome is a solar light that comes on at night,£3 or 2 for a fiver.cant be bad.same with the ones you can see on the ground,theres 2 that look like rocks and 2 frogs,all 2 for £5.supermarkets are getting the place to go if you want cheap garden lighting.


i do have quite a nice show this year,the weather has been not too bad,dry,so i have had to water,a lot of wind,but not too vicious.


Tomorrow,wednesday i go to Norwich Hospital to Ear,Nose,and Throat for camera down throat.my MS consultant is not convinced my weak voice is all due to the MS so wants vocal chords checked to make sure there is nothing nasty on them.as the camera goes up nostril it is not a particularly pleasant procedure.my mate is going to take me from his,so i dont have to drive so far.I will let you all know the result as soon as i hear.in the meantime i hope summer finally makes its mind up and stays for us all.it is really cool tonight again,about time we got nice warm nights,not that many yet.take care all.










FORGOT THESE ONES,MY PURPLE CLEMATIS,USED TO GROW UP MY SADLY DESTROYED ROSE ARCH.NOW TRAILS ALONG THE RAILINGS.













THIS REPEATED ITSELF AND I CANT REMOVE IT,LOL. THEY ARE GROWING WELL.

Your flowers are beautiful, Mort. Everything here from grass to trees are brown from the heat and NO rain. Even ranchers are having to sell their cattle because they can't get any hay for the winter. It is 105°F. here today.
Wishing you good results with your tests tomorrow.

The flowers are beautiful, as always. YOu have an outstanding green-thumb. Bet Mum gets a kick out of the restful beauty you surround yourselves with.

Love & Prayers from over here.

Gorgeous Mort. I didn't plant and flowers this year, only tomatoes, peppers and green beans. I decided to spend that money on indoor work, like paint!

Mort, those flowers are just beautiful. Takes a lot of effort.and I know it takes a bit more for you but it would be a shame if you had to stop doing it. Good luck on that proceedure, sounds awful.. Alan's voice was very weak for quite some time. Take care and let us know the results. Good luck.

What joy it was to see you had added to your Blog Mort..Your flowers and hanging baskets look just brilliant. Bet your neighbours enjoy seeing them all look so colourful.
Hope that all went well at hosp. today. (Please keep my informed. My Nephew had a similar procedure on Monday however he has not to speak for a week ! and should hear in about 10 days results...fingers crossed)
Look after yourself and love to Mum,

Carnations are so pretty.. All of them are. I really like the picture of the house with the flowers, You speak of cool. Send me some cool, please!!! Mort you are using all of your energy, I know. I also know you are going to fight this MS. I applaud you every day. Alan's Birthday was July 18th. He would have been 61. I miss him.
