Morning peeps

Are we still expecting the new site to launch some time this week?

What are your favourite scented plants?

Might watch This Farming Life on catchup tv, just to see those magnificently crafted rosettes

Just back from a wonderful day in London wandering round the City.  So many places I had been before with my "work head" on, and had never really seen.  So many quirky little streets, houses, pubs and churches.  The low point was the barbican, the high point was the timber framed house still standing in Smithfield   Also walked over the millenium bridge ...a first for me.  Think we walked about 6 miles - my feet are certainly tingling now.

Gloves!

I love Ethel gloves - you can get them on Amazon.  They have leather reinforced finger tips so you can garden with long nails

Woop woop Clari. You're transforming that place.  The scouts will appreciate it even if your lousy colleagues don't.

Morning all

I grew cosmos antiquity last year - really pretty colour, but shorter than most cosmos, so keep it near the front. (Think I put a picture on a recent cosmos thread http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/talkback/anyone-started-there-cosmos-seeds-yet/939231.html ) I also bury them deep when potting on.

Both Mr C and I have a few days off - we had been planning to go away, but health stuff has postponed those plans.  So today we are hopping on a train to London to do a "hidden walk" ......he has a book, so we won't be following a lady with a yellow umbrella - we will guide ourselves
