HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. Has anyone watched that Horizon dieting programme? I'm a "constant craver".

Amazing that DD has crocus in flower already. I haven't, can't even see leaves, but then it's hard in grass. Can see daffodil leaves and some snowdrops have white tips, others have hardly started.

I think you do amazingly well, Marion.

I'm sorry to hear that Berghill, must be hard for you. You have such a big and beautiful garden.

Morning all. Raining. Plug plant catalogue has arrived. OH said he would light the woodburner, hope he does it soon then I will sit in front of it and plan for summer.

Hope Liri and anyone else with colds are feeling better.

Which garden would you pick?

I've been to Sissinghurst and Hidcote, both are super but I prefer Hidcote. They are a long way apart but perhaps you want to drive from East to West. There are loads of gardens to visit near Hidcote, I like Bourton House and Kiftsgate.  http://www.gardenvisit.com/gardens/in/england/gloucestershire

But if you go to Sissinghurst try to squeeze in Great Dixter as well. In fact there are loads of gardens to visit in Kent and Sussex as well. Nymans is gorgeous too.

I've probably thoroughly confused you once you look through that lot! But perhaps you've already found them all already.

Well, Cowslip isn't a coward, turned up again after all. I've loved reading this thread too, but original question was rather provocative, almost insulting.

I shall now upset all the grass lovers, but they probably don't mind what I think anyway. I don't care for grasses, too much like weeds, not enough colour, no scent, boring. When we were in Yorkshire I decided not to go to the Scampston walled garden but to go to the Breezy Knees garden, glad we did, Breezy Knees was fabulous. Thought those grass beds at Scampston were so dull.

I liked the irises. Loved the rose one and Friday's one and really enjoyed the best back gardens prog with Alan T.

Catkin identity please

Not catkins, perhaps you meant pussy willow. But not that either, agree with nut and Bob.

David Spikes, that photo when enlarged was fabulous.

Watched the 2 gardening programmes, some gorgeous back gardens with Alan T., liked the irises with Rachel, but not the grasses. I don't care for grasses, too much like weeds, not enough colour, no scent, boring.

Hope I haven't upset Verdun but he already knows what I think.

Couldn't get her this morning, laptop was on a go slow.

What an unusual day you had DD. Thank goodness you were there for that man, hope he has recovered.

OH will be back from England this afternoon, but I will be out as going to the hospital with a friend who had an operation before Christmas.
