Afternoon all

Been doing more bits for the Dublin trip - only 10 days away now

GC shopping got rained off yest  so the new pots are still waiting for the compost to enable me to fill them  I do have some plants for them - one will have my witch hazel, not sure on the other two  Need some more planning  Oh, and a trip to the local market  Might find some sticky plants there!

Hope you are feeling better Lizzie

Well, no spoilers from me ....... but I liked the winning garden 

I also like the sewing bee and bake off! 

The Great Chelsea Garden Design Challenge

I like it  There, I've said it 

It's not 'real gardening' but then neither is Chelsea. 

I too am enjoying Joe Swift on this more than I do on other programmes. He does seem to be interested in helping the 'designers' out too, which is nice to see 

I have agreed with the judges so far . . . my fav is the Geordie but am not sure he'll win.

Yesterday I managed to scavenge 3 large plastic pots  Now I have to fill them  But before I can do that I need compost. Pa Panda is taking me to the GC to get the bags tomorrow  

Wonky, I know you can put Eric in a pot - that's where my azalea is. Not sure how it works in the soil

Gosh, where have you a all gone? I popped off to help at Rainbows  They had a tour of Tescos who are doing something for young uns about where food comes from - had a whole bit with where different veg comes from. Then had dinner with my friend 

Glad you are feeling better Dove 

Lovely pics Lizzie and Fairy 

Good luck to all those with littlies doing exams

Afternoon all 

Sorry you're not well Dove  Hang on tight to the sofa  

Have been a little absorbed by a book that I've just finished so now I'm back

Well I'm back and short breaded out  Wish you had been there Fairy, I ate too much! Best one in the plain shortbread (Guides) was a lemony one, and then we had to judge millionaires shortbread (leaders). I don't think I could manage anymore 

Think it's time for a coffee and a spot of bench holding down

Thanks for the offer Fairy  I'm hoping I have enough Scottish heritage for the task

Morning all 

Looks a nice day here. 

Saw my first swifts of the season yesterday  Soon the skies above chez Panda will be full of them 

Today mostly I will be eating shortbread as I am judging a baking competition  I feel that Guiding deserves the sacrifice I'll be making 

Have a good day all  Dove, try not to wear out Wonky too quickly  I'm sure the bacon sarnies and coffee will help though.......

Night Fairy and Dove 

I had Thai Green Curry for tea 

Now a low fat toffee yoghurt for pud

Time off Clari  Are you sure you've worked enough hours to deserve that  Glad the 'camp' went well
