Still grey and bitterly cold here I'm going to make some bread and a rhubarb and custard cake and do the ironing (it'll keep me warm), then maybe it'll be more like gardening weather this afternoon?

Yesteday's sun has gone so a bit chilly-Tuesday looks a good day-going to play around for the first time in weeks-hopefully
Bunny-your garden is tiny-or is it the pictures?
I want to go to Liverpool-calm, calm down
That's a nice garden you have there bunny, nice to know I'm not the only one with a load of hard slog ahead! Can u upload the pics bigger? Currently they are only 124x166 pixels so even when u click them they stay small :/
I took first ones with ipad..
See what these are like ..
Bit better-what is wrong with the camera??
Pics load onto our computer fine , and pics from camera onto our website ... so ???
That is better
This is a pic I took when we demolished the old chicken shed some time ago. I really took it for the picture of the cat just eyeing up a jump onto the fence from the top of a statue.
We replaced it with this, it's now covered with grape vines a. wisteria and clematis oh and a climbing rose.

Tried the resizer ..

I give up
We can click on those pictures Bunny to enlarge them-in fact we can zoom as well
Before picture - veg garden
Today after I have prepared beds for this year. Where th wheelbarrow is will be another raised bed, probably order it within the week
As you can see piles of rubbish everywhere - work in progress!
the middle bed has my garlic growing happily in it - just not shown up
By the greenhouse I am going to dig out grass fro a cold frame and nursery area. That will help fill new raised bed.
