Warm and sunny day here as well, Alan.  Had a lovely day outside even though I did get carried away a bit and came in rather late. You can sense the change that's just around the corner. Ooooh, can't wait.

Gosh Alan you have had a busy day. After a chilly foggy start to my day the sun finally got going about 10.00 am. After gazing out the window at work longingly wishing I was at home in the garden I  finally got home at 3.00pm I was determined to get gardening. I had a good old time deviding a big clump of daylily and then finding new homes for all the new offsets [some are going to mates gardens] .After that went well I had a go at splitting a hugh pot of agapanthus , tricky or what? I am now in need of a new breadknife and a new pot I guess thats mothers day pressie sorted.It was good to feel the sun on my back  though roll on spring!

We had a nice gardening day on Sunday so the beds were mulched and covered.

See you in the starting blocks Alan.
