March in your Garden

Yarrow, I find it incredible that you have geraniums outside in Edinburgh that have survived 4 winters. I live in Dordogne and it's impossible to leave them outside, they never survive.

That's funny, the rather unpolite remark jon cob made to me, which I answered above, has gone!

Thank you all for the nice things you've said about my garden. It looks nothing like that at the moment! Snowdrops nearly over, daffodils not quite out, but there are a few helebores. Prunings and cut down dead stems all over the lawn!

Speak for yourself Geoff. I'm most frightfully sensible and utterley normal. I never get emails from strange women. But I have had a few phone calls from a weird French man saying unmentionable things about sex! OH was very cross!

What did Mrs. Geoff say to that? Or didn't you tell her.  Don't reply, she's only after your money!

Sun trickling through, must get off backside and go outside.

Hello yarrow2, lovely euphorbia. I don't think it clashes, it's a good contrast. You've probably met Verdun, above, he used to be Christopher then there was another Christopher (don't know where he went). After months of us asking Verdun finally sent pics of his garden - wonderful.

Is that a pelargonium in that pot? How did it survive the winter?

Morning all, been up, been outside, fed animals. +6° at 8am (7am in UK) forecast 14°, rained in night. Minuses forecast for morning from Wednesday. Shall I put the horses' rugs back on? They are now plastered in mud which will have to be brushed off first . Why do horses always roll in the mud when it rains?

2 Sungold tomatoes up so far, sowed 9.

Doesn't anyone else watch Countryfile, Call the Midwife and Mr. Selfridge? I've missed out on all the excitement over Bunny's name and our accents.  People tell me I speak posh or like the Queen, brought up in Surrey, went to a convent school. Can't help it, not musical, can't sing, can't do accents so I'm stuck like that.

Can anyone tell me what this smiley means and why it has odd eyes?

Happy Mothers Day

Thank you Brumbull for the lovely flowers. Only ones I'll have today as my 4 children (all grown up now) and I live in France and Mother's Day is last Sunday in May!
