Oh anybody heard anything about Brumbull hope everything is alright.
Good morning Andy - gorgeous day here too, and I'm not at work today - got a bit of shopping to do and then meeting friends for lunch
Not heard anything of Brumbull for a while
Hi there morning folks
Beautiful morning here. However, think I am going to have to get out there with a watering can for my new plantings this evening, and my water butts are running low. Is there ever perfect weather for gardeners ? Possibly long sunny days, with regular gentle rain showers every night. Will put in a request to John Ketley (or whoever reads the weather these days ...)
Morning all. Sunny here after a bit of frost but we're apparently getting snow on Saturday...
Accidentally left some lettuce out last nigth but they have survived- they werer tucked in at a wall with some other plants so they were quite protected. My tomatoes have little flower buds on them so I'm really pleased.
Think Carol on BBC is the best chicky-I'll put a word in about the rain. Fellow Scot-she'll get it sorted
Enjoy lunch Dove.
Not heard anything about Brum...
Have a good day everyone
Hi new to this thought I'd just pop in to say hello
Sunshine again, wonderful!
Another work day but the weekend is nearly here. Have a lovely lunch Dove. Hope you all have an enjoyable day.
Hi forgetmenot3, welcome!
I wonder if Brumbull has gone to his other home in Spain? Hope he's OK, miss his cheerful comments!
Morning all and welcome Forgetmenot.
Glorious day, clear blue sky and warm here in the SE - Verdun. I am doing nothing except sit or may get my chairs from the loft and lie, or lay, whatever is correct.
Fairygirl, my son left the frozen chips out last night! They were rather soggy this morning but, as I don't eat them, I popped the back in the freezer.
Don't eat fried food because I don't like it. Thanks for the offer of the Weetabix FG.
Son reckons he's going to transfer tree from big pot to ground today. Told him he needs a big hole and he will be lucky if he can get a fork more than a couple of inches into the ground. Think it will need soaking for a while. But then, we all know about son's promises don't we.
Have a good day everyone.
Tina- I never have fry ups either- don't like 'em! I hereby quash the assumption that all Scots eat them every morning!
Chips-hee hee! The 5 second rule ...just slightly lengthened. I'm sure he'll survive!
Cloudy here now so going to get a bit done before the rain sets in for the next 2 days.
Hi forgetmenot! As you can see we don't always talk about gardening
hi thanks for the lovely welcome it is quite dull here in Ireland but manged to get some digging done before the rain tomorrow might need a fry after that
I'm having to lay down, partly because I am absolutely kn...ered as I didn't do as I said I would but, also, tree out of pot and in ground, all the border edges are being recut and the pond has been looked at. Son is still out there. I must mark this day on the calendar. Has just suggested we turf the large bit of garden under and behind the Magnolia tree and I asked 'which year were you thinking of doing it'.
Didn't go to GC as I heard on the radio that there was big hold ups on the road we would have to use and I didn't fancy sitting in traffic for half the day. My Tesco man, who was supposed to be here between 2 and 3, turned up at 3.15. I asked him if I was his last drop and he said I was his first. It had taken him all that time just to get down the road we would have been on. Another day. Am happy with what has been done today.
Did I hear someone say that makes a change? Cheeky lot.
Having a little rest, then going back out to finish off.
This is new to me,have been out cutting the lawn in preparation for my tortoise who has just woken up after hibernation,must be lovely to sleep through the cold wet winter and wake up just in time for sunshine
Welcome Forgetmenot and GillyL. It has been slightly more cloudy here today but still pleasant.I'm having to water both back and front every day at the moment- still shouldn't complain.
For those who watch Beechgrove on BBCScotland it is on at 7pm today.
Been absolutely glorious today. Hot.
Havent heard from Brumbull either....usually get pms from hiM but not for a while now. Yes, he's probably winding up a spanish garden forum....ha ha
Thanks Bev, I'd forgotten about Beechgrove.
This seems a very friendly group,glad to have joined you all.Lovely evening here,apart from the midges!/
Hi Gilly L - and welcome. You'll find it a bit quiet on here now, as everyone moves over to the Evening-Forkers thread at 6 pm ...... which is where I am going now !!

Morning everyone Gorgeous morning here in Norfolk (sorry Andy - not meaning to gloat) blue skies and golden sunshine - I've been out in the garden in my jimjams this morning, just checking everything and opening up the mini greenhouse - things are growing apace and my Clematis alpina Pamela Jackman is bursting into flower, and C. alpina Willy isn't far behind her (oo-er Missus )
I'm at work today, but tomorrow I'm here all day until about 5pm when we set off to S. Lincs for the weekend so I should get some gardening done first - some potting up and on to be done and I plan to start my runner beans off in the mini greenhouse this weekend too.
