morning MrsG and wintersong

Pot sounds classy MrsG - hope you find it the perfect plant.  GC and a car wintersong .....endless possibilities

Grotty wet here too - but set to improve. Planning lunchtime saunter to GC as the birds have eaten us all out of birdfood.

Morning all.  Its light

Another week at the coal face doesn't seem so bad if I can see the garden before I leave.  And only a couple more weeks and I will see it after work too.  

Just surveying my hands from a normal persons eyes (as opposed to a gardeners) - think it might be fair to say the brambles left their mark - even through the gauntlets

Nasturtiums can self seed quite profusely - keeping them in pots will stop them running riot.  Having said that, they are pretty easy to pull out if they end up in the wrong place, so not sure i'd really class them as invasive

I won the first skirmish of the bramble battle - remains to be seen whether it will have been enough to win the war.  My pipecleaners came from a craft shop and so if you look closely there is now a kaleidescope (?spelling) of coloured fluffy bits sticking out of the butchered bramble stems.  Good job the only person who looks closely round here is moi.  Lovely and sunny - saw a butterfly and a bumble bee buzzing round my crocuses
