Well done Yvie, you must have been eating less too. That's the bit I find hard.
Have done dusting, now making marmalade.

I don't mind the moles and the deer being in the paddock and the wood, but I wish they would keep out of the flower garden and the lawn. Especially as I sometimes open it for charity.

Thank you, how kind you all are. I felt a bit daft posting them as there are such lovely things on this thread. I like gentle country scenes in watercolour done by skilled artists so wanted to have a go.

Lily P, I'm sorry about your plants in the GH. Maybe they aren't all lost and when the weather warms up new shoots may appear.

OK, Joyce  They aren't very recent, got discouraged because what I saw in my mind didn't come onto the paper!

If you don't kill it it will find a mate and have babies. I speak from bitter experience! They burrow under my plants and leave roots dangling in the tunnels. I use traps.

Wow! I haven't seen this thread before. What a lot of amazing talent! I once posted some watercolours on a thread like this, but they aren't good enough for this thread. So professional.

Hardy salvia?

I've lost Hotlips several  times in the cold winters of SW France, but Salvia Blauhugel and Caradonna have survived and are now several years old.

Morning all. Happy Birthday, Dove.

Mild and drizzly. My 3 Gertrude Jekyll roses have arrived! Christmas present from OH. One is going in the pot he gave me and two are going in the ground. He gave me compost as well.
