Good morning all. Raining here, but yesterday afternoon turned out quite nice. Pruned the last prickly rambling rose - yes, I know ramblers should be pruned after flowering, but it is a very prickly Albertine with dead wood in the middle that I couldn't reach last summer for new growth, whippy stems and leaves.
About a month ago we had a warm spell, sun and 16°, so I sowed mange tout peas and broad beans. Peas are coming up, no sign of beans. I had a little dig about and they've disappeared. Going shopping this morning, I'll have to buy more seeds.
I hope, Verdun, that when you've recovered from whatever it was, you'll tell us why. Hope it doesn't hurt.
