Roses and tulips are all behind bars for that reason Dove.  But quite a lot survives outside the cage - including my growing collections of hellebores (i blame you lot for that) and snowdrops.  OH is busy making more fortress protection for our new veg/fruit patch as we speak

Thank you Daniel and friends - much appreciated support outside office hours

Lovely day here - have some planting to do and some seeds to sow.  Late last night, whilst returning from taxi duties, we saw a new, much smaller deer on the side of the road - not much bigger than a fox.  Which i think means that the muntjacs have moved in alongside our usual roe.  Hope they eat the same things, or some of my "safe" plants might be about to come a cropper

Lovely to know you are enjoying it Peanuts - i do too.  I don't have many friends who are into gardening, so this site gives me a way of chatting about it to others that are interested too.  So many new ideas, and so much advice, i have learnt so much by   joining in.

and as the little ones get bigger, you will get more time to potter out there - mine are now teenagers, and i can't work out how all those years flew by
