Wintersong - i am sorry to say i keep a diary of when all my favourite plants come out (i know, i should get out more) - this year is a good month to 6 weeks ahead of 2013 ..... But 2013 was very late.  No roses blooming here - but buds visible

 

Punkdoc - i got 3 visits round Madrid Art galleries, without one cross word or raised eyebrow, in exchange for our night at the Bernebeu.  Good deal methinks

It is fantastic that these national companies are helping out in this way.  Nut's right - we can do the growing, but its all for nowt if we can't get the plants to where they are needed.  So a big thank you for helping us make it all come together  - who said big companies were faceless ?  They need to read this to find out how wrong they are

What a coincidence Punkdoc .... This year I will be 50, will celebrate my 20th wedding anniversary, and was taken to Venice for my 40th/10th wedding anniversary.  You're not Mr Chicky in some sort of elaborate disguise are you?

To find out if you are, I need to know whether your first thought for a special birthday/anniversary celebration was to take your wife to Madrid to see a Real/Barcelona game ??  Luckily he ran the idea past my Mum first, who put him right

Very generously, I agreed to go with him to Madrid for el Classico the following year - turned out to be a true classic - with Beckham, Zidane, Figo, Messi and Ronaldino all on the pitch at the same time ......some, before they were famous

I'm confused David - is your garden under some sort of canopy to escape the snow
