Morning all. Andy-do you sleep when you go to work...
Hope today is a bit better weather wise than yesterday so that I can get more done in the bed at front that I started on Saturday.
Dove - it wasn't much higher than 5 degrees during the day here yesterday afternoon!
Hope everyone has a good day- at home or at work
Mornng FG Same here - we put the heating on yesterday afternoon.
Morning Andy, didn't see you there
Hey folks, can you do me a favour? I've got to go to work today, but if you see Nutcutlet about can you let her know I've sent her a PM as we'll be in her vicinity next weekend - I don't think people are getting email notifications at the moment !!!
Morning all I had a wonderful day out yesterday at Edinburgh Botanical Gardens and was amazing to see so many Rhodendrums in bloom soem were past blooming to
Shame it was so windy and cold and rain showers.
I shall share some photos at night.
Dove..Message received and understood Captain
that'll be good scotkat. I have one in front garden but in bud only. Don't know what colour as I've only been here a couple of months!
morning all, looks like a nice day but have to go to drs to get blood taken so not getting going early today. hope eeryone has a good one
Hope all is fine blackest. Take it easy today

Mornimg folks. Hope all ok at docs blackest
Sunny here.....looking good
Hope we get some warmth later ...send some up here Verd!
blackest think my rhodi will be red maybe shocking pink or better still purple like yours
I actually don't really like them much...
Morning all, those kitchen crooks have posted again, moderator informed!
Another rainy day here, think I'll just sleep it away like yesterday.
Sue -they are bandits aren't they?
Enjoy your nap
Dove and Sam I've got the messages. Thanks
The sun is out so I can cook up in the GH even if the breeze is a bit on the chilly side.
bright and sunny here but off to work, have a good day!
Short n sweet, running lane!
Morning all! Hope your results are good, blackest. Got up to lovely sunshine, but more overcast now. Buying paving materials today for path to go between new flower beds. Exciting!
FG, I agree about rhodos. It is lovely to go and look at them in a big garden when they are in flower but they are a bit of a liability in one's own garden. Too big and gloomy when not in flower and needing acid soil. They won't thrive in my garden, anyway.
Morning anyone who is still around. Blackest hope all your results are good.
It's lovely here again this morning. Have to be careful though- I'm actually peeling on my sholders from where I burnt last Tuesday.
Hope everyone has a good day
I've found a soul mate - Chicky eats weetabix for brekkie.
I decided last night that I am going to give the garden a miss today. Realised I had overdone it and was tucked up in bed at 10. My legs walked all night (RLS) so, as long as it's warm, I will just sit outside and plan. If I dress 'properly', no gardening clothes, then I won't be tempted to carry on the clearing up.
It's simply wonderful to look outside and see everything bursting into growth. Unfortunately, my Magnolia is dropping its petals. So beautiful, but so short lived.
Blackest, haven't had a chance to see if I can change page settings. Just thought I would let you know. Probably have to ask son for his assistance.
Enjoy your day, whatever you are up to. Commiserations to those who have to work.
This is a PS. New couple that moved into old lady's house across the road from me decided to blitz the front garden at the weekend. Why oh why do people do this. Beautiful dark red Camelia, much admired, cut down along with all the other shrubs. Result, a total mess. Was informed they were 'tidying up'. Oh dear.
All go here, having new bathroom window and back door fitted, OH has started on downstairs loo - Moans if need to use it as, of course, no window in bathroom. BUT at least it is begun
Bitterly cold, quite strong wind here, am also taking it garden easy again, may plant some onions out of modules, and paint bindweed
Take it easy Tina, bodies can take a long time to recuperate from heavy wheelbarrowing etc.
I bought a rhodo the other day for my family border - It's my daughter, it is a dwarf one and will have to go in a pot . Soil is just about OK for camellias but not rhodo's. It is a wonderful red and has a flower about to burst in it,
It is a pot for this I was supposed to get the other day.
I don't suppose i'll go out today either.
Still back door badly needed replacing.
Should always remind people of the value of large shrubs think it makes them care more when they blitz nice specimens.Maybe think twice...
Dr got my blood now they want me back thursday, hate getting all this fuss take my pills , have my injections what more is needed.
Tina - I had pains au chocolat for breakfast today
As they're making everything smaller now but charging the same I needed to have two...
Don't know which is worse-the people who do nothing and let weeds run riot or the kind you've just described.
Nothing allowed to grow over 4'...
