HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all - sun here too lily - but will probably be short lived.  Just been round the garden - lots starting to grow, which always lifts the heart!  Noticed my christmas box wafting out perfume in one corner  - first time i had caught it - lovely

Birthday treat day today - taking 5 teenage girls on a train, shopping in London, wagamamas in Leicester Square and then home for a sleepover.  Feel exhausted just contemplating  Think i need a second cuppa in preparation.

enjoy Strictly Panda - and others stay safe - looks like its gonna get wild again

I have the hellebores from hayloft too - they are all called "Ellen" something ( Ellen Red, Ellen pink etc).  Pinkq - yours looks like an Ellen purple.  I bought mine two years ago, and have flower buds on them all this year.  It is soooooo exciting   Good luck with the Ofsted - i'm sure you'll impress!

Where is the best place to look for information on ferns?

I can recommend Bowdens too - great plants and very helpful.  I have used them for both ferns and hostas

Fairy - chocolate cake - is there any other sort?  Made with my age old trusty recipe of weighing the eggs - never fails!  But you have to wait for icing else the maltesers will roll off ......

Ann - its Tracey who is off to Grasmere.

great to hear son's op went well Mrs G - and double great that job offers are coming in 

Cake is in the oven - decorating starts later.  Will post a pic if it turns out well!

Still raining - local river burst its banks again.  Never known weather like it - south westerners must be in despair.
