Morning - wet and warm here. The magnolia has turned slightly pinky brown, meaning yesterday's frost got it. However 2/3 rds of the flower buds yet to open, so they might still be ok. Think the fleece helped the Pieris escape. Tricky business this spring malarkey
Just planted an asparagus bed here - hope we won't be going anywhere
Hi to new folk
Hope MrsG and Lizzie feel full of beans tomoz.
Glad the GH is nearly there Tracey
Just been watching Winterwatch - shows how often i get control of the TV remote in this house. Loved the hedgehogs
The world is white! One of those hoar frosts here. Hope all those new shoots i spotted yesterday aren't clobbered
I'd keep them in - treat them like seedlings. They will be ok to be planted outside for good sometime this summer. Your GH will be up and running long before they arrive
My Mum was a nurse - maybe thats where it came from!
Mine are little red shoots too Lizzie - and they have only appeared in the last week! Think the gulf stream must give my corner of surrey a miss
My Mum always used to refuse to put red and white flowers together - said it meant a death would follow. Its rubbed off on me, just in case its true
Thats a relief - i have just ordered one today, and was not banking on 30ft
Its a pulmonaria Blue Ensign - the bees love it, and i think the colour is gorgeous
