Morning all - survived my day in London - actually had a really good time.  Sunny today, but windy.  Might try and get out there to do some sweetpea sowing - think i have collected enough loo rolls now.  Hope the snowdrop walkers have a lovely day - we want a full report

Hope your head is ok now KEF - i've PM'd you.

Only just caught up with this thread - what a nightmare Hostafan.  Was there much in it ?  Hope the insurance delivers, but what a hassle.  Think i would shed tears if anything happened to my GH.

john Mc - my Gh only gets sun for half the day at the moment.  I can grow most things, although tomatoes take an age to ripen.  We are moving ours to a sunny spot later this year as part of a bigger garden redesign

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!
