Here you go Fairy

Weekend starts here.  Was hoping to fit some gardening in, but think I might be thwarted by the big freeze.  For now, I am snuggled in front of the fire looking forward to some gardening telly.

Glad you made it safely Panda - have fun.  And glad that Fairy's boiler saga (why are they always sagas?? - its not like they are rocket science) has come to a happy end.

Hydrangea Advice

Some hydrangeas (especially the lace caps in my garden) do have dry, brittle stems - i think it is just their nature.  Like yours, mine seem perfectly healthy and flower well, so I don't think it is a problem.

Wind came whistling through here last night too - didn't do much for my beauty sleep.  Will be a bit ragged today.  OH has just been for a bit of an inspection, and thinks all looks ok.  Must remember to put my bin out this morning - left it last night for exactly the reasons Dove saw.

went to gardening group last night - picked up a new snowdrop Mighty Atom. Need to find it a home this weekend
