Don't you mean buns Verdun ........... Lol
I was thinking the same! GG you could always get that Pope mobile into service...every cloud etc Very cold here again. Had a look at my pots yesterday and there's a hosta trying to grow. Another bunny rescue from old house...pesky critters Hoping the cannas are ok. There's a clematis here which I'll try and rescue- previous owner must have put it in - but it's in the grass (??) Might need a road digger if it doesn't thaw out soon... Hope you're feeling better Dove- it's the start of summertime on Sunday...can someone tell the weather that
Good morning all. Raining here, but yesterday afternoon turned out quite nice. Pruned the last prickly rambling rose - yes, I know ramblers should be pruned after flowering, but it is a very prickly Albertine with dead wood in the middle that I couldn't reach last summer for new growth, whippy stems and leaves.
About a month ago we had a warm spell, sun and 16°, so I sowed mange tout peas and broad beans. Peas are coming up, no sign of beans. I had a little dig about and they've disappeared. Going shopping this morning, I'll have to buy more seeds.
I hope, Verdun, that when you've recovered from whatever it was, you'll tell us why. Hope it doesn't hurt.
About to start dough off for hot cross buns, Going to daughters tonight with an order for them
Then, you never know, I may actually make the raised bed while dough is rising. The aim is to paint it (bed not dough) this afternoon
So busy day here. I was going to do a Paul Hollywood recipe but have decided to do my old tried and tested one
Hope al, are recovering from coughs, colds and not being able to sit down
Morning all. Not quite with it yet. Sun's shining and it is definitely a few degrees warmer. No chance of getting to get anything from GC as one son working, other son off to a wedding and daughter having a 'jim-jam' day as it's no school. Don't blame her as she always seems to be chasing here, there and everywhere. Never remember there being so many activities when they were all young.
I do wish I could have a hot cross bun! Don't think I fancy one of Verdun's though.
I think Verdun's been talking to my daughter - apparently I texted her about my Hot X Bums
As the thread ask .. what are you doing today ? Well i'am on pot washing duty need to make sure ALL pots containers have been thoroughly washed and disinfected.

Tina....why not. They are delicious. ESP when cooked top and bottom.
Morning all - know its late, but I'm on HOLIDAY
Planning how to spend my next four days. Some plugs arrived during the week that need sorting, and I have my magnolias to get into pots. Think the house is going to start filling up with plants as daren't put anything in the GH yet. Keep checking the long term forecast, but no sign of any let up in frosty mornings yet.
Planning a walk with OH when I have done my gardening chores - see if we can find somewhere not too muddy.
Oh - and gas delivery finally arrived yesterday - so heating is back on . Will keep a closer eye on the tank level in future ....
Oh Brum you're so virtuous and hard working and making us all feel sooooo guilty! It's risen to the dizzy heights of 2.5 degrees now. Bought seeds at shops (spinach, sweet peas and more basil)and will try and get some sown. Need to wash car Saw a bar of acocolate which said 'dairy free, gluten free, egg free, sugar free'. I just thought- where's the other one that says 'taste free'...
Fairy ... i like to be thorough got to do some pinching out then, my standard fuchsias are yelling at me - feeeed me !! feeeed me some of them have been brought through the winter in leaf but a lot were de leafed and dipped, and I've just noticed my horty grit supply is low ! i tend to buy this in bulk to be honest, but i thought i had more than i did !? was covered in snow - which is quickly melting ........ ssssssshh
That should have said chocolate but I think you know...! Brum I have rocket in a pot which I grew from seed and seems to survive the freezing weather no probs. I cut it back all the time and it keeps growing...if only it was warm enough to actually face eating salad instead of stew/roasts/lasagne etc and drinking ever increasing cups of tea. I left lots of pots, trays etc when I moved as I just didn't have room to keep them in the temporary rental house so I've been improvising and buying a few cheap ones. Pot washing will have to wait till I change things around and till warmer weather arrives!
Good morning Brumbull, and any other early birds BBC is predicting a steady improvement over the next 5 days so perhaps some progress can be made. Looks cloudy this morning and frost free. Might even be getting some sunshine for a change.
Good Morning blackest, welcome to the early- bird club been informed that Monday supposed to be best day here ??
hmm today sun on and off sunday cloud rain bit of sun monday but wednesday is looking best at 8c and sunny. So steady improvement but not by much ...
