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

Anyone done any gardening today?

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.

The ballet was lovely. I hope you enjoy Swan Lake as much, Lovetogarden.

Why do they put all the programmes I want to watch on the at the same time on the same evening? Bother them.

Is the soil very wet? They like well drained soil. They also prefer sun and I see that it's the north east side that is affected. Has it been colder than usual this winter where you are?

It's a lovely afternoon, but we are going to the cinema to see Prokofiev's ballet "Romeo and Juliette", live from Moscow with the Bolshoi Ballet.

Morning all.

Lovely neighbours BM. Horses are usually gentle animals, it's just their size that makes them scarey! Loved that link, Dove. Those big ones are usually the gentlest of all.

More sunshine.

I've been outside nearly all day today. 17° in the shade, hot in the sun. Heating is now installed in the GH, hope seedlings will be OK.

We even had cauliflower cheese for lunch sitting outside in the sunshine.

Bekkie, I don't think my dog's pee is strong enough, pampas grass is still standing!

 Looked like a bush fire!

I remember your garden, John, and when you made the herb bed.

The sky was deep red tonight.
