Lily P, I'm sorry about your plants in the GH. Maybe they aren't all lost and when the weather warms up new shoots may appear.

OK, Joyce  They aren't very recent, got discouraged because what I saw in my mind didn't come onto the paper!

If you don't kill it it will find a mate and have babies. I speak from bitter experience! They burrow under my plants and leave roots dangling in the tunnels. I use traps.

Wow! I haven't seen this thread before. What a lot of amazing talent! I once posted some watercolours on a thread like this, but they aren't good enough for this thread. So professional.

Hardy salvia?

I've lost Hotlips several  times in the cold winters of SW France, but Salvia Blauhugel and Caradonna have survived and are now several years old.

Morning all. Happy Birthday, Dove.

Mild and drizzly. My 3 Gertrude Jekyll roses have arrived! Christmas present from OH. One is going in the pot he gave me and two are going in the ground. He gave me compost as well.

Morning all.

Looked at that link Pansyface. I'm a Virgo. It says:

The Virgo horoscope 2017 says that practical, well organized and an absolute perfectionist would be the caption under your picture in the high school yearbook. You’ve got an eye for detail and a special place in your heart for efficiency. That Virgo mind of yours is always whirring along and makes you critical, picky and analytical. You’ll put that extra splash of effort and time in to get things just right.

How come I posted messy bits on that thread and my filing is two years out of date? Son says I have too much clutter. But I am quite good at running charity events, so I've been told.

It has been warmer at last here today, up to 12° and no frost this morning.

I now have a nice new temporary crown from dentist son.

That is a gorgeous cushion, Joyce.

Glad you had a lovely day, Dove, and I hope you enjoy tomorrow.

Gosh, you've worked hard, Hosta. It's all looking great.
