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

Evening all - its the weekend - yippee!  Got some violas to plant out tomorrow - if i am getting my trowel out for the primroses then may as well make it worthwhile

We live in a pretty rural spot on the edge of woodland. And though we see lots of wildlife we have never seen a hedgehog - despite numerous strategic log piles for them to call home. Someone said that you don't get hedgehogs where there are badgers - does anyone know if that is true?
Jealous of your visitor Lavande - pictures would be lovely!

I'm back again - had to pop into Crocus on my way to work to pick up my new witch hazel - and i am sitting waiting for the office to open. Have a great time in the snow Mrs G
Noticed my first daffodil open when i left the house this morning - which has put a smile on my face that should last the day !
