I think Verdun is jealous.

Well done OL.

I can't lend Chris Beardshaw, Matty, he's spoken for. I'm short and my OH is short too. The new Poldark rides a horse much better than the old one, who was useless. Must admit I like his eyes.

I thought 27 was over 60 - or is it (oops) a secret, or have I got it wrong?

Have been in veggie garden all afternoon. Planted and sowed broad beans, cleaned water butts, prepared ground for planting onion sets tomorrow - if there is time, we are going out to lunch with friends.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Have planted out 27 broad bean plants from earlier sowing and sown 2 more rows. Prepared the ground for planting onion sets if I get time tomorrow but we are going out to lunch. Have cleaned out the water bins in veggie garden and refilled them.

Think I prefer the new Poldark to GB. But give me Chris Beardshaw anyday!  At least I know we have something in common!

Morning all. Was sunny, but starting to cloud over.

For one who said he didn't care for roses, Verdun seems to be getting very excited about his new rose. I wonder if he'll think it looks lonely on it's own and will end up getting some more

So much to do in the garden, mustn't panic! Somehow, since I reached 27, it seems to take me longer.

Lyn, I think it would be a good idea for the Marie Curie nurse to come tonight, whether you can cope or not. Then they will get to know your Mum and the situation, also it would have given you a break. They may not ask so often if you refuse.

SL/OL I think you can change your name if you click on your picture and go to "my settings" then just delete your old name and type in your new name. It may not let you do Orchid Lady if you have completely re-registered as Sunflower Lady because it will think there is already an Orchid Lady. You could be Lady Orchid or Orchid Lady 2 perhaps. I'm sure you can change your name because some of us used to do it around Christmas time to give ourselves more festive names.

Mice/moles have eaten my rhubarb!

I thought rhubarb was very hardy, grows in Siberia. What about pinning horticultural fleece over them? Have you ever tried not protecting them?

You have so many flowers out Marion.

Flumpy, yes I do speak French. I think you meant you saw my photos on another thread (the Canada one), I put them on this forum.

OH rotavated half the veggie garden this morning. I had to get up the weed surpressant fabric first and dig up the rest of the leeks (now in the freezer). This afternoon I finished clearing up prunings from yesterday, swept the flower garden terrace, always full of dead leaves after the winter. Then I pruned the Paul's Scarlet Climber rose, had lots of branches (fewer now), lots of prickles and involved a ladder.
