Morning, Forkers. Hope you soon feel better, Verdun. Brum, take it gently!
Grandkids gone home (sorry, grandchildren). Dicussed with them yesterday the fact that I have the best grandchildren in the world.
'Aw, Grandma, all grandparents think that!' they explained kindly.
'All grandparents think it, but all other grandparents are wrong, that's all,' I replied.
They laughed, tolerating the elderly and eccentric.
Have been looking at photos of beautiful gardens this morning, trying to translate them into the reality of my small garden. Wish I were better at garden design.
Thanks GG .................. Morning

Morning folks. Sun is shining and I'm going out to play
Feel I've missed an awful lot- went out yeterday morning and was busy all day then watched G's W etc. Beautiful day here but another sharp frost.
Nut-woodpecker They're so lovely. Hope the newt's ok. Birds have been having a feeding frenzy here.
Repotted indoor plants and did lots of those little annoying things that need doing. Daughter put together a small table for the kitchen and I looked at it and thought-hmm-more room for seeds! Lettuce seed are all poking through and sweet peas doing well (GG!! ) Daffs were at last through so I've cut some. Spring's definitely coming!
Did anyone else enjoy the Hepaticas feature on G'sW as much as I did?
That's an alpine house I need to add to the list...
Weren't they absolutely gorgeous?
Morning everyone - sun is shining, sky is blue, and its the weekend
Loved the hepaticas too !
Gardening Club has its spring show today, so just about to deliver the cakes we baked last night (fruitcake - me, cupcakes - daughter). Is there an unwritten law somewhere that garden activities can never happen without cake ??
Then I had some leucanthemum (white daisy things - not sure I have spelled right) arrive during the week - need potting up for a brief spell in the greenhouse.
Have a good day everyone.
chick ............ good morning , save me a cake ?
Can I see a whole row of gardeners with their hands stretched out .............. ?
I'll put the kettle on
lol ........ changing my name to oliver !
Eaten too much cake this week
Need to go a good walk now!
Looks like spring has arrived at last.
I wonder if our dafs will finaly open today. They are quite late now...
Have a nice day all!
Morning all. Really need to get on with my new bed and planting anything that should be planted, not the GH plants of course, as we are off to England on Tuesday. Hope the weather is getting warmer there. Never know what to pack, at least it's by car not RyanAir this time.
Hope you're better soon Verdun, lots of colds about - Dove had a shocker and I've had one too.
Blackest, if you think it could be angina then please don't work too hard all at once. Do it bit by bit with plenty of tea breaks!
Morning all, lovely day here, but no time to garden Marking to do, I'm getting behind. Hairdressers appointment, turned up yesterday on the wrong day Visitors tomorrow, need to do a tidy up.
Morning and welcome
Morning all. Sun is, opps, was shining and notice that it's considerably warmer than yesterday. Sooo, I may venture in the garden. Grass dry, rain forecast for Tuesday, so perhaps a quick spin with the mower. Need someone with a big fishing net so I can safely get something from the bottom of the pond. Wouldn't attempt it with the usual small one otherwise I could be swimming with the fish. Wouldn't be the first time.
Before I go, this is my thought for today:
Just for today, I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly, keep my voice low, be courteous, criticise not one bit. I won't find fault with anything nor try to improve or regulate anyone but myself.
If I do this, I will be a much happier bunny.
Morning Tee Tee
And we don't want you 'swimming with the fishes'...
Off for a walk otherwisethe smalls I'm hanging out will have to be in a bigger size!
I'll catch up with all you lovely people later
Not this time of the year Fairygirl! Water freezing. It would take my breath away.
That's for Verdun.
