Thank you so much for all your pictures Marion - i love following this thread

Keep seeing pretty trees with yellow flowers on my journey to work - thanks to your photo i now know what they are - a willow with "pussy willow" catkins that have exploded

Oh KEF - big hugs and positive vibes

Thanks for that - it looks like my Black Adders have made it through the winter, and most of my cuttings took too, so i might be adding some this year.  If it does well here, i add more

Gorgeous sunny day.. what did you all get up to?

Clari - i "hide" in my GH - i work on the principle that if i pretend i can't see people, then they can't see me either.  Bit like a 3 year old playing hide and seek

Great news on the planning Fairy - now bring on the builders.  Lovely daff Stacey - definitely worth marking for later.

Lovely camellia pics.  Looks like i started something ........ now how to amuse you tomorrow ........

Busy day, but not a garden in sight.  Roll on the weekend - complete with arctic blasts - thats my magnolia done for.  Might squeeze a bit of HW in this evening. .... OH is out, and the girls have their heads in school books (well, more probably social media, but they make it look like they are studying hard)

And just to prove we put garden pics on here sometimes too ..... Here is my new camellia (from Trehanes) - bought because it has the same name as the littlest Chicklet.  And, no, she is not called Debbie!

 Pretty as a picture

Morning all - enjoy your days away Dove.

Thanks Verdun, for your advice on Bowles Mauve - when do i need to remember to take cuttings?  I'll make a note now - will be nice to replenish the stock.

Our forecast is turning cold for the weekend - might affect project GH move (Tracey isn't the only one with GH worries!).  Needs to get done before i get too many babies in there

Tracey - its 4 days til the weekend - plenty of time for the forecast to change
