Good to hear from you Mrs G - i was thinking of you only yesterday (spotted my first allium leaves coming thru).  Hope all is ok with you and yours, and that you have lots of plans for that new greenhouse of yours. Take care

Can i put in a request for no snow on Feb 8th - we are hosting a sleepover of teenage girls, and my worst nightmare is being snowed in with them for the following week!
Welcome Poddington (never heard of the programme - must have been in that period between my childhood and that of the chicklets- when i was too busy running around partying to notice what was on TV- those were the days)
Is tomorrow a special Dove-day by any chance ???

Lily - your picture sums it up nicely

Have caught the lurgy that is doing the rounds - so having a day nurse with my morning cuppa and trying not to feel too sorry for myself.

But had anyone caught a haggis Woody? 

Rose questions now I've sorted the begonias :)

Tracey - you are not too late to order roses barerooted if you get a wiggle on (they need to be in the soil by March). All my roses have come from David Austin - if you go on the website you can request the latest catalogue - full of advice and pictures galore.  Not got any yellow ones, mine are all pink or white.  Can recommend Gertrude Jekyll, winchester cathedral and shropshire lad.

Back from GC (left the witch hazel behind - £30 was a bit steep) and the GH.

Had a nice time pottering with seeds and cuttings.  That is until ......spoiler alert for those eating their tea ..... I couldn't work out why the watering can that had been left full in the GH was not pouring properly.  Looked inside to find not one, but two drowned mice.  Screamed so loud i woke up the neighbours ..... Yuckkk, still shuddering now
