I hope it's just the day that's miserable, Matty, not you.

The man who cuts my logs has been today, doing some serious pruning of a huge neglected pyracantha and some other neglected shrubs and lower tree branches. The bonfire pile is huge!

I've re-potted three blueberry bushes and planted some more violas.

I get the error message, I click on "OK" bottom right, then I wait for pic to appear as usual.

Anyone done any gardening today?

I've re-potted 3 blueberry bushes into much bigger pots and planted out some more violas.

Welcome back DD. Where did you go?

Talking of boxing, if Verdun's head gets much bigger from all the admiration his ears will need boxing!

We went out as OH wanted some bits and pieces from the DIY shop and he really fancies pizza tonight and I needed stuff to make it with. Bought some more seed packets in supermarket.

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

I'll second what little-ann has just said, which is why I haven't posted here for a bit. Thank you to David. My sweet peas have lived in a cold frame all winter and are now bushy and about a foot tall. But I haven't got round to preparing their bed as I had bronchitis and have got behind. Have recently sown some more, for continuation.

Morning all. Foggy.

Recorded Poldark, and Indian Summers watched Mr. Selfridge.

Not sure yet what I'm doing today.

I hope you feel better soon Marion. My cold turned into bronchitis, better now, but the best side effect was losing 4 lbs!

Honeysuckle or Clematis?

I bought Dr Ruppel last year because LeadFarmer posted a picture of it. I'm very pleased with it.

I never soak them, but my mother dipped them in paraffin to stop the mice eating them.

Looking full of promise Kelsbels.

Dug Nelly Moser out of the trough between 2 roses and planted her in her own pot as roses stole her food. Quite a job, roots were huge and rose roots had gone into them. Roses very prickly and Nelly was hanging on tight.
