Bit of a long run from here, have visited some years ago now, but when we do go back I'll look out for you!

Scotkat that is good nice to see when all your hard work is showing, bit far away from here as well.

Going the volunteering gang that is good, I do voulunteering at my local train station it is rewarding when you see a difference.

What sort of thing do you have to do?

I will remember that.

Today we were in the glasshouse it was nic ewith sun streaming in I was sowing many seeds.

My friend was doing her painting names on nice wooded tags.

Then we moved a lot of plants into the cold frames.

Tues I have herb seeds to sow.

And a lot of watering.

Once we start to see things change I shall upload photos of the project.

We have a friendly robin comes into the pottign shed he came on my head today and just sat close by.

What a lot you have been doing, seed sowing is enjoyable I think- do you like sowing seeds?

Robins are gardener friends I sometimes see one near me in my garden

photos sound good

Yes I get many robins in my own garden Gardengirl.
