HELLO FORKERS!

MrsG - I am waiting til the morning, in the faint hope that the forecast will be wrong  .  In 17 years of the Easter Bunny visiting, i think this might be the first time he has had to come inside.

if it plays up again then you get to your editor choice by going to "my settings" , then "forum settings"' then there is a toggle box between basic/advanced editor.

Once you are on basic editor you lose smilies, plus the ability to upload photos - so I tend to switch it just so i can send a pm, then switch it back.  In the grand scheme of things I prefer smilies to PMs

If you switch your editor to basic, like Daniel advised last time, it works fine.

Gorgeous tulips Mrs G - and am desperate to see the arch.  Tweenies bring back happy memories for me - as do the Wiggles and Fun Song Factory .

most of the day spent shopping and cleaning ready for guests tomorrow, but did get out there and plant another 5 clematis.  Think i might have a bit of an obsession going on

Wonderful Lizzie - your euphorbia are huge.  Are the light blue mounds in the same photo the creeping phlox?

My hydrangea paniculata's are very slowly coming into bud now - they are much slower than the other sorts, so would not give up hope yet.

"Haphazard" worked well yesterday as a gardening style, so will try it again today . Got some borders edged (Beechgrove trick worked wonders), some plants planted and some mulching done.  I have lots of pricking out and potting on to do too - but saving that til Monday as it is a job i can do in the GH whilst it rains outside
