Morning DD, Fidget amd Becky - lots of early morning company on here today  And i can see a faint lightening in the sky already, and the birds are tweeting away.  Hope Dove and Lizzie are feeling better today - sounds like you both have a bad dose of flu

Lots done there MrsG - now you're all ready for spring.  Whats the plan for your new planting space??

rain and wind now swept in here, but not before I mad a good attempt at cutting back old stems in the borders.  Now looks much better.....weeding and mulching next  Loads of new shoots sprouting away already - they don't seem to mind the daily frosts.  Think I might curl up with a book now

Ours are 7 years old now and never had anything done to them.  Only ever use water and washing up liquid to clean them .  Microfibre cloths for buffing them up were a real find about a year ago - gets them sparkling in no time

Deep frost here, so my big gardening day will have to wait til it thaws a bit.  Rain forecast this afternoon, so might not fit much in after all.  My borders are in desperate need of a cut down and tidy up (yes, I know I am very late with this) and I am beginning to feel I'm playing catcth up already.....and its only February.  Will prioritise my Group 3 clematis, and then take it from there.

Hope poorly, bunged up, coughy peeps are soon on the mend
