Put them in the freezer DD. Then get them out and reheat for next guests. Eat the fruit salad

Lyn was here not that long ago, pops in and out. Hope her parents are OK. Hollie Hock was moving house again. Orchid Lady is probably busy with their new business.

 The Wedding Day, 7 metres wide and a lot taller than me.

Looks OK to use GG. No smell, as Chicky says, black and quite crumbly.

My cold isn't too bad, more of a nuisance than anything, needs tissues. Have started pruning huge Wedding Day Rose which forms a hedge at one end of the veggie garden. Haven't done it for 3 years and it has lots of old and dead wood in it's centre. They say to prune ramblers after flowering. I find it impossible, can't see what you're doing for leaves.

Tigger is doing OK on the cortisone. But I don't think he'll ever go back to dog food!

DD, I hope Shadow is OK. When Tigger was done years ago he didn't even seem to notice!

Morning all. But I haven't really got much to say. Hope everyone has a good day.

Thanks Dove, you're safe, there's a sea in the way! Going to bed with a mug of hot chocolate. Night all.

Sow hardy annuals direct. Most others will need more warmth and care to get them going. Perennials are best potted on a couple of times until they are a decent sized plant or they are slug bait.

Good luck for tomorrow Matty.

Lesley, I grew Bishop's Children dahlias from seed a few years ago and left them in the ground over winter, they still come up, but I don't know how they'll be this summer, been a cold winter so far.

Have been clearing up the mess in the veggie garden. Hadn't even cleared away the old peas, broad beans and runner beans.

Morning all. Woke up with a sore throat, probably getting OH's cold, but it's not a bad one. Anyway, must go shopping, supermarket, no milk left, Tigger needs chicken and rice. Haven't had time to look back yet. I'll catch up when we get back. Must get back in time for log man who is coming to cut some branches on trees and sort a rampant unpruned honeysuckle that has a big bramble running through it.
