We have sun and smilies here

FiL popping in for lunch, after that I will be pricking out my cosmos and cucumbers.  GH will then look rather full.

brilliant day yesterday.  Inspiring and very entertaining lectures by Tom Stuart Smith and James Alexander Sinclair, a wonderful tour round Abbey House Gardens (swathes of tulips everywhere, and very atmospheric and clever garden design ....just beautiful). Plus some sticky plant labels meant a dicentra valentine, anchusa royal lodden and omphaloides (??) cherry ingham from Hardys accompanied me home
