Goodmorning all or is it afternoon. Some of you must be very wicked in view of the unearthly hour you get up. Unlike me who has only just had breakfast.
GG, Dorset is a place where I feel I would like to live, if ever I felt the desire to move. Love everything about it. I used to look in the estate agents' windows but found that the price of property was the same, if not more, than where I live now. Too old in the tooth now.
That Bramball was really crafty wasn't he with his avatar. Had to check a couple of times. Never mind, ignored now.
Horrible day here, snow again, but shouldn't complain when I see what others are having to contend with.
Snowing heavily as I think it tis nearlyeverywherer. Trying to find an egg cosy pattern for Grangaughters easter pressie. - to knit, which is mostly what i will do today.
May post some garden gallery pics later
Woke up to snow - which meant the gardening course (tips on how to grow soft fruit) which I had been looking forward to all week was cancelled.
All very pretty, but snow is always a bit of a pain. Trying to work out what to do instead - might pot on some lavender plants that have been sitting in the GH all winter. And then curl up with a book.
I notice quotes from Forkers have appeared in this month's GW magazine - seemed strange to see nutcutlet and flowering rose's name in print !
Have posted once - will try again
It is snowing heavily here today. Started about 11 last night. Looks set for the day by the forecast
I have been trying to find andinternet egg cosy apttern of a bunny for my grandd aughter easter pressie. Lots of idea but it must be free, and easy. Will keep looking. That is what I will do today.May put some pics on Garden gallery later
Meant to say to all the other day that if you're near an Ikea they have an offer on plants up till tomorrow. Thay had good size box balls and cones and other bits and bobs with about 15% off maybe 20% so worth a look.

Morning, again. Meant to comment on last nights gardeners world prog. I thought t was very good this time. Enjoyed it all.
Agreed. Monty is nice. Educational (even if it's something you know already)without ever seeming patronising. Did you see his progs on France and the one on Italy a while back? Beautiful. He's so good on his veg. Do you think he gives a lot of it away- he must have tons!! Why do I always think his dog's called Nigel? Hope you feeling better today Tina x
Good moaning all....having complained about MD on another thread perhaps I had better give him another chance. Weather is dictating life as ever. Trip To Wisley tomorrow now cancelled. Indoor event last Thursday...meeting of Hants. branch of alpine gardening soc...my first time..was excellent,talk by Kew expert on bulbs of Kyrgistan..made most welcome by the lovely gardeners there. If I don't get out into the garden soon I will be behind where I was last year. At least most plants are sleeping too and are not racing away from me.
Swiss Sue loved the picture.
Did not get around to seed planting today. A friend showed up at 10.15 and left at 4. The only interruption to the yakking was when we decided to go out for lunch leaving a note for OH advising him to have some cereal! (He was in bed after working nights).
A nice day, but those seeds are calling to me.
Woo2, have just seen your question on page 15. Before I had electricity in the greenhouse I used a double Kerosene heater which kept the frost out and kept the GH at 2 or 3° warmer. I used electric propagaters on windowsills indoors, then put the potted up young plants in the GH with the heater on at night and cold grey days. When it's sunny the GH is warm enough. But I live in SW France and spring is usually earlier than in the UK.
Good morning everyone...the wind has dropped...hurrah!...but it is cold.
Visiting GC to check out clematis thena pottering day...see what needs doing.
One side fence are looking a bit wonky...or is it the view from up here..
Enjoy your day.
Morning cilmeri, enjoy your day at GC
Good morning everyone - still very cold here and the landscape looks as if it's had a generous dusting with icing sugar - nothing like as bad as some people are having to deal with - but no gardening will be done here this weekend Paperwork to be completed and bread and cakes to be baked, roast pork and apple sauce to be prepared and consumed.
Keep warm and safe whatever you're doing and have a good day
Morning Dove , hmmm dinner sounds very appetising
enjoy, have a nice day too
Good morning, all. Freezing cold but no snow again here, although it is in the hills just a few miles away. Another attempt to plant a few seeds today!
Morning GG, just a complete WHITE OUT here GG
Morning everyone I hope you are all well.
Oh what an awful couple of days I've had but onwards and up wards as they say
We've still got at least 7-8 inches of snow here, flipping nightmare it is. My car is next to useless in anything deeper than a couple of mm so that's been stranded on the drive since Thursday evening.
I bought some chilli & sweet pepper seeds earlier this week so want to try and sow those today as I believe they should be done quite early. I'm proud to say the tomatoes I sowed a couple of weeks ago have germinated too. I'm obviously doing something right! This seed sowing is pretty addictive isn't it
