Morning all - hope you enjoy the day with your son Dove, and that those that work have a good day.  I have one more day to do, then a lovely break for a week.  Weather looks to be good so lots of gardening opportunities

Morning all - we escaped the forecast frost - and looks like a lovely day out there.  Think i will treat myself to a GC visit in my lunch break - need more MPC and bird seed.  My pots of tulips are tantalisingly close to flowering ......

They'll just say things like 'can I have a party?' and 'can you get me that top - it's only  £89' and 'can you give me a lift to Birmingham next Saturday'. 

And then can you pick me up too ... at 11.30pm ??

Take it easy Stacey - rushing round at 100mph can't be good for a headache.  Didn't realise it was crocus open day this weekend ..... Might have to consult my diary .....

Hope Mum is home soon V.

Just been for GH patrol and mice have invaded my cold frame, and nipped 2 clematis at the base of their stems.  Hoping they will have enough of a rootball to resprout.  Really cross

But only 2 more workdays and then i'm on holiday - so that puts a  back on.
