Morning all.
Going to daughter No 1 today, Granny duty, 3 small grandsons. Daughter and SIL going to Portugal. I'm there until Wednesday then other Grandma takes over.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Gardengirl, the pillar marks the end of a wall, about 1m tall, that divides the higher lawn from the lower one. First OH had it built in 1991 for a climbing rose which since died as deer ate it. Now that 2nd OH has fenced that bit of the garden, I have planted another rose.

Primrose C, Phil is beautiful. Hope he doesn't eat your plants.

Better than a sweet shop, GG!

French Bingo always goes on way past midnight DD. My daughter won a live chicken once. Poor thing had it's legs tied very tightly. It thought I'd rescued it and followed me about, but it turned into a cockerel. Kept him until he died aged 5.

Love your Poldark poem, RB. You are so clever to make it rhyme.

Finished the middle bed at last, photos on gardening today thread.

Thank you Wintersong for liking my photos on garden photo thread.

Nighties all.

Rained this morning, quite heavy at times. Potted up tomatoes in the GH.

This afternoon the sun came out. Finished the middle bed at last.

Photos taken on 28th March, 14th April and 25th April. Meant to try posting them last first as they always come out back to front, but then I forgot, so they are bound to be back to front!

My seedlings have perked up a lot, but one planter with wallflowers and forget-me-nots will never look as good as the other one and a couple of shrubs are looking sad, Nandina Domestica waiting to be planted and a willow whose leaves turn pink (was a present, not sure where to put it yet) has lost most of it's new little leaves. The roses in pots have perked up too. - For those who asked

What to do with this broccoli?

I meant to say "shoots with purple buds, yellow flowers"! Eat buds with some stem, remove flowers.

I did hear that, Dove, I just haven't heard anyone pronounce it like that.
