Morning all.

Cloudy but not raining. I'll be in the veggie garden this morning, sowing and planting, and planting onion sets. Going out to tea this afternoon.

Been busy in the veg garden. Dug up 2 trugfuls of bindweed, a load was in the sweet pea and cut flowers bit. Where did it come from? Wasn't there last year. All ready for sowing and planting. So far only has broad beans and mange tout peas in it.

I'm opening my garden with the same scheme as DD. Mine is open on the 8th May, I'll never be ready. Saw my friend in the village who is opening on the 8th with me (her choice of date) and her garden is looking very good. Not only will I not be ready, but nothing will be out - it's too early.

Spent the afternoon in the veg garden, just coming round. Where did all that bind weed come from in the sweet pea and cutting garden bit? It wasn't there last year.

Glad to have you back, Marion. We were worried you were ill.

Lovely photos, thank you.

Hurray!  Thanks Liri. I've sent Fruitcake a PM, as she was going to see her.

Morning all.

One of those big milky coffees please Dove, but I've had two already

This is the first year I haven't seen Lily beetles on my Madonna lilies and they are 2ft tall. Every year I think of digging them up as they always get eaten. Maybe I speak too soon!

Wonky, make sure it's well attached, even if you have to put a rope around it and attach it to the wall! They have a nasty habit of blowing away in strong winds.

Gosh, KEF, a few weeks! Here funerals have to be within a few days, if you want a week's wait you have to get special permission. It affects ex-pats who have relations who want to come.

Lovely sunny day. Spent several hours weeding and edging the upper middle bed, not quite finished yet. Also potted up some plants for my Open Day plant sale.

Spent several hours weeding and edging the upper middle bed, not quite finished. I weeded it in the autumn, the mild winter and the rain have encouraged the weeds.

OH was able to clear up the wisteria prunings at last, the baby blackbirds have left the nest. When he was pruning he realised that Mummy blackbird had just laid the eggs so the clearing had to wait.
