Well done Matty

I thought I was one of the only people who doesn't care for clematis growing through shrubs.

Been busy, lunch for tomorrow prepared, tables set, dining room hoovered and dusted (but OH did that). Vase of flowers picked and arranged for church tomorrow. Also got out into GH and pricked out loads of lobelia, more petunias, double pink cosmos and ageratum "Blue Mink".

That's gorgeous, David, don't think I've ever seen one so big.

If you hadn't been up and about, Dove, I would think you were ill!

I'm usually up and about some time before coming here, but I'm not an early riser. I feed horses, dog, cat first and potter in the GH or garden before brekkies.

Granma, I'm glad this thread has helped you. It's understandable that you don't want to go to your Dad's grave. My sister couldn't go to our brother's, her twin, grave for years and years. But we are all so different and react in different ways. World would be a boring place if we were all the same. When my first OH died when I was 47 I used to go to his grave nearly every day. But I don't believe he was actually there, just his body. He had gone to wherever souls go (I like to think there is somewhere), if they do, after death.

Happy Easter. You could just say "Happy Spring", Hostafan.

I don't grow carrots in newly manured places. But if you try, I'd love to know if they really do fork!

Happy Easter - know your bunnies

The ground here is too rocky, limestone, for rabbits, but we have hares and deer instead.

A friend sent me that e-card too. I hope my daffodils don't die on Easter day as I need them for decorating the church tomorrow. Happy Easter, Marion.
