Lovely pics, your gardens are more advanced than mine and I live so much further south! I suppose the UK has the gulf stream.

I saw that programme about North Norfolk too. My mother's parents had a holiday house in Salthouse, not far from Sherringham, when my mother and uncle were children. They used to sail at Blakeney.

I have done nothing all day, apart from going out to lunch with my sons. Meant to prune another climbing rose but it rained.

Late afternoon lots of cranes flew over my house. I was nearly too late getting my camera and had to use the zoom. The sky is very grey. They made a heck of a racket, but it's a sign that spring is coming!

When you copy a link you have to click afterwards to make it change colour, then it works.

Lovely springlike photos Fairygirl.

I loved Geoff Hamilton too. Saw all his GWs late as we couldn't get English TV when we moved to France in the 80s. Easier with satellites. So sad when he died too soon. He did gardening for everyone, not just the better off and he made some super things using recycling and inexpensive materials. I loved his cottage garden ideas with flowers and vegetables together.

Back from lovely lunch with 2 sons and DILs and adorable granddaughter (2), who seemed very pleased to see her Granny. Each DIY is expecting, May and July. We went to a little Chinese place.

Really pretty hellebore, I want one. On way home stopped at supermarket for bread, found they had pots of Marmite, hurray I was nearly out, and they were setting up their gardening sale. I bought a large cottage garden pink. Something I don't have. Only 4€ (£3.30) and should be able to take cuttings.

Please don't go puncdoc, we need you here.

He was rude to me, I don't care. If someone I cared about was rude I would care. I'm not leaving (unless I get too busy with spring gardening, but not likely in the evening!), I like it here.

Morning all. If there was any bother this morning I've missed it! I get up too late.

Going to lunch with my 2 son's in a restaurant today. One, who lives near Orleans, with his OH and my adorable granddaughter (2) is staying with the other, who lives about half an hour from me. Both OHs are expecting my grandchildren No. 7 & 8.

Viburnam Tinus

Oh dear, could it have Viburnum beetle?

Haven't quite gone to bed yet!

That plant is tanacetum Haradjanii or Silver Tansy. Mine looks as though it's died with all the rain we've had and they aren't that easy to find. I used to use the leaves in miniature flower arrangements in the village show when we lived in Kent.
