well, just been outside for a half hour and trimmed blueberry, cut back crocosmia and pulled a few bittercress stuff out -i think.  crocosmias have new shoots and it does look better.  will need to get to back of border soon to cut back other perennials but feel good now.  hubby laughing at me as it's cold, wet and windy-Ohh the joy of gardening!!

wow busyL  lovely pic we have a leonard  messel, bought with vouchers 5 years ago and i have had to nurture it.  The slugs/snails eat the buds and then last year all the buds dropped in feb/march time.   I put it in copper planter a few years ago and this seems to have tackled the molluscs it's in a big glazed pot now as I didn't want to risk the ground i'll look forward to better flowers this year
