Quick post from me - too late to catch up, but will do so in the morning.  Lovely day with family (Dad, Sister, BIL, nephew and nieces) - lots of laughs.  Rain cleared away in time for an afternoon walk, which made room for another meal .  Easter Bunny was forced indoors, but caused excitement and giggles just the same.  Love days like today

Enjoy Elgar Woody - what a treat !

Rain has arrived here too - well they said it would.  Still, plants need a drink.

Hope you find the perfect spot for your rose OL

Happy Easter.  

Rain still not arrived - but promised very soon.  Family arriving in a couple of hours - should be fun .

I like the ones with added John Innes, and top dress pots with potting grit - keeps the moisture in, and stops the algae crust

MrsG - I am waiting til the morning, in the faint hope that the forecast will be wrong  .  In 17 years of the Easter Bunny visiting, i think this might be the first time he has had to come inside.

if it plays up again then you get to your editor choice by going to "my settings" , then "forum settings"' then there is a toggle box between basic/advanced editor.

Once you are on basic editor you lose smilies, plus the ability to upload photos - so I tend to switch it just so i can send a pm, then switch it back.  In the grand scheme of things I prefer smilies to PMs
