Good morning, the birds are in full chorus and it's mild enough to have the pleasure of seeing the new growth...Enjoy your day and weekend whatever you are doing.
Brumball, many thanks for keeping this thread going in spite of all the difficulties...and I like your hanging baskets whatever they are planted with
Dove, I'm sure they will survive the days and nights are getting much warmer
Morning all it's a good bit cooler this morning but looks like it's going to be a good day not much gardening for me today. To be at hospital for 9am to get my chemo treatment and usually feel a bit sick when get back home late afternoon but there's always Sat &Sun to catch up with the jobs have a good day everyone.
Take it easy this afternoon Andy - I've got work then GP today and will doubtless be told my BP is still too high - so I've given myself the weekend off and won't visit Aged Ps until next weekend - this weekend is for gardening - much more therapeutic
Thanks Dove that's why i love the garden after my illness i find it so relaxing and therapeutic helps take your mind off the worries in life for sometime.
Morning all. Take it easy Andy. You do more than most people I reckon so treat yourself!
You as well dove!
They're talking about plants getting chucked on the news this morning cos of weather so that'l be amusing ! Chris Evans was talking about it on radio yesterday too.
I'm hoping to get something done outside today - hurray!
Have a good all!
Plants getting chucked is So Last Week Haven't they got any new news?
Right, Hey Ho, Hey Ho, it's off to work I go but at least it's Friday
Have a lovely day everyone - see you later
Dove-they're very slow at the newsroom unlike us ...
Enjoy work-I'llbe thinking of you here in the sunshine
Morning all looks like its my turn with the sun this morning so coffee is brewing and hopefully out to get my beds made
Black clouds and a bit of wet but I don't think it will come to much. Got a heap of shredding waiting out there and it gets bigger by the day. Better get it done. Last time it was a real mountain, took me 2 days and then incapacitated with sciatica for weeks. Not helpful but spring failed to materialise so not critical.
I won't be throwing out any plants. Might do a bit of light pricking out after the shredding.
I saw the bit on the news about the 'disaster for growers' () but it was a heap of s**** really- not worth watching. Diarmuid had about a minute to inform (pointless really) and basically said get out to nursery/garden centre etc and watch G's W!
Well it's about 6 degrees here but beautiful so sweet peas and lettuce are outside for a bit of sun, washing's going out and measuring awaits!!
Enjoy your day all!
Morning all. But murky at present but supposed to get better. However, I'm not sure I will be a navvy today as I have aches and pains all over. Will see how the day goes.
Morning folks, today I have loads planned, kids with mummy so I have no excuse. Work, work work! Have a good one.
My dad had pre-op assesment yesterday and hopefully his op will be next week. Trying not to worry too much, hes not having a general anaesthetic so should be able to come home the same day. When he has had this op it will help with the blood flow through the carotid artery. Dont think i would like my throat cut and being awake at the same time.
Not planning on doing much today apart from tackling the bathroom, who keeps making it so dirty?
Swimming lesson this morning - therapeutic- washing on line, lovely sun
Loads of plants to go in - well a queue- foxgloves, clematis, veg to harden off.
My GH type cloche, plastic, was ripped to shreds yesterday so am not sure how my brosd beans will do without it. But they need to go in.
Also in queue are lettuces - again no cloche now
Feel less down today, Thanks for your help yesterday
I was going to get one of those little gr'houses but mine would have ended up the same as yours I reckon after the weather we've had in last few days. Beautiful today and about 16/17 degrees. Positively summery!
Got all my measuring done so now can draw plans up..hurray!
Maud I hope everything goes well for your Dad. It's hard when you're on the outside looking in and it makes you feel a bit helpless. We'll all be thinking of you...and him.
Know what you mean about bathrooms...don't have an OH any more so I blame it on the children..

Thanks Cil, but its the good people on here that have kept the thread alive, its everybodys thread, NO rules and there for all to use.
My hanging baskets are a bit of a speciality of mine but ssssssssssssh ... dont tell verdun .. lol
Just planted this Tiarella - Timbuktu
Oh see the trolls are out from the other side .. .... oh dear, oh dear me.
I don't wish to know that Verdun. No sun and really chilly. Not what was promised.
Bought a Passion Flower and 2 clematis from Morrisons at £2 each. Only small but they will soon get going. Not going to put them in yet. Did have lots for £5 which would cost £10 at the GC. Trouble was they were too big for me to get home. Did eventually get a lift home but couldn't bear the thought of queueing again. Was so busy.
Have noticed a couple of odd bods. Best to ignore them don't you think.
