So pleased about your bluetit, Hosta! Have you put up a "sold" sign?

Our guests have left, enjoyed lunch and their company.

Gorgeous snowdrop (nearly typed bluebell!) woods, Chicky.

I left a card in the birthday thread, Frank. I hope you have a good rest of the day.

Congratulations to punkdoc's Mum. I hope the sale goes through smoothly.

Morning all.

Friends to lunch today.

Maybe you just don't need much sleep Hosta. If you just relax and don't worry about it (easier said than done) do you think you'd feel so tired? My 1st OH only needed 4 hours a night. I was the tired one as he sometimes wanted to talk to me!

Loving the signs of spring. Gorgeous colour, GD, glad you found the thread. I noticed bumble bees too in the garden today. My winter honeysuckle is out but I can only smell it when I go right up and sniff it. I had thought the air around would be full of perfume when I planted it.

Obelixx, I sent a link for photo albums on previous page, not the first link, mistake.

Did get outside and did some sweeping of leaves on the garden terrace that blew there when we had the high winds, also cleaned the French windows, sun was shining on my back, really warm.

Now going to make the chocolate mousse for tomorrow and prepare some veg.

Been cooking but it's a lovely day, hope to get outside at some stage.

Bad knees

Posted: 18/02/2017 at 12:48

Like Meomye, getting up is a problem. I can kneel, it's the comfiest position for weeding for me. I'm not good at hoeing and it makes my back ache. I have changed some pots for plastic ones, but I don't like the modern designs they have now in France, lots of shocking pink, turquoise and lime green. I like the square lead look ones I've seen in England but they don't have them here.
