My GC doesn't sell tea and cake It's shut for lunch, very inconvenient. There is a bigger GC near Bergerac that has a cafe, but it's an hour's drive away.
Pepper dog and I are going to stand outside Sainsbury's with a collecting tin this morning collecting for rescue dogs. Just looking out warm kit. No GC for me today.
See y'all later.
Well done Flo, just make sure you wrap up warm enough. I hope people give, but the English are usually pretty generous. There are hardly any charity shops in France. I think the French think they pay their taxes and the State should pay for everything.
Hello all. Bright and sunny here at the moment but as I'm still car-less I won't be going to the GC. Shame as tea and cake would be nice.
I did some collecting for Guide Dogs a while ago outside Tesco, helping my friend out, and had a trainee dog with me (on loan). Got lots of donations and everyone stopped to make a fuss of the dog, who was extremely well behaved. Am sure you will do well Flo. I did notice though that the people who gave most generously were the ones who had dog food in their trollies!
Talk of bulbs reminds me I have some lily bulbs in pots somewhere - but can't remember where! Will have to investigate over the weekend!
Lovely day out there. Jess's last day at nursery, then half term! Hope the weather stays like this.
Slept terrible, and have a bad back now. May turn the mattress later.
Great links Gary. I like stuff like that. Although not landing in my garden.
Lovely pic Pam. I love the colour!
Good luck Flo! Maybe you could belly dance at the same time to raise the funds??
Another lazy day-did not wake up till 8 and then lolled
Flo-I hope you collect oodles today-am with you in spirit
And now the weather-it will stay mildish for the next few days -but is set to get much colder again from midweek-so all those who think Spring is here-you have been warned
J Peasmold Grunt-Futtock-Flo will know
Ah but Sue you have work and other things to do-done all that-dont need to rush nowadays
Just returned from GC. I had been planning to buy a couple of pots, but abandoned plans when I discovered that GC has just got new stock of plug plants - petunias, lobelia, etc, I like these and they sell out quite quickly. So ended up buying some. Got some strawberres (that I don't need), 4 for £2; and some tomatoes (that I don't really need), 4 for £2.30.
They also had some bags of niger seed marked 'end of season clearance'; not a lot cheaper than normal, but every little helps.
Bunny, do we get a pic of the coldframe?? And what does 'bit waffy' mean??
Good morning everyone.
Back from the wilds of Warwickshire, beautiful county, but boy was it cold. Lots of snow over Stow on the Wold way, like being in fairy land. You will have to fill me in on anything of importance I have missed, far too many posts to catch up on.
Out into the garden today, far too nice to be indoors.
Love the pansies, Pam. my violas in pots look sick. will have to pick them over and see if I can rescue them, hopefully with a few days warmth they will revive.
We visited a GC in Burford, It was soo expensive didn't buy anything, only garden voucher for SIL birthday oh and a packet of dry cured bacon from farm shop, greatly reduced
