Such gorgeous photos and those lupins are stunning.

What do I do now

Missed this thread, just seen it on the Snowdrop walk thread. I know just how you feel about it Nut. I'm no good at houseplants. Plants live outside in my book. It looks sort of plastic.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Well, I heard you got cold and wet and very muddy, Hosta, so that sounds like gardening to me!

Is that a clivia, Nut? I have a friend who grows them and she offered me one. I'm afraid I refused. She thinks they are gorgeous but they aren't really to my taste.

HELLO FORKERS!

Hello. We arrived in Eastbourne last night. There was quite a swell on the sea, but I rather like the swaying feeling but hard walking.

Slept badly and the grandchildren wake up so early, flat not very soundproof.

Removal man came this morning with packing materials. Have only packed 5 boxes so far and 2 big bags of bedding. Having coffee break.

Going out this evening for meal in a Turkish restaurant with my sister and her OH and my brother. We'll be further from them in Norfolk. But for years I hardly saw them because of living in France.

Morning all. We'll be doing the same sort of thing as Clarice today, without the Scottish bit, ferry this evening. Eastbourne to pack up the flat then Norfolk on Monday to move into the cottage. Back to France, via son in Burgandy in 12 days.

I take it all off in the spring to add manure and dig or rotovate. You have to put goodness back into the soil after growing crops. Also need to rotate the fabric for the sort of crops the holes were cut in it for.

When I remove it to dig over there are worms.

I have loads of worms in my living soil under my permeable fabric. Tomatoes and peppers, even runner beans do well surrounded by it. But then I live in SW France and it can get very hot here and dries the surface to a hard crust. The fabric helps to keep the moisture in.

I had mice eating strawberries when I used straw.
