GH babies wrapped up just in case ...but from tomorrow it all looks warmer.  Potted up some new verbascum Helen Johnson too.

loving that watersplash too  Might go annual shopping this weekend - need isotoma, blue salvias and marguerites for my summer pots - will grow them on for a bit in the GH in the space left by my evicted agapanthus.

sorry Winter - won't be joining you on the morning shift tomorrow  My turn for a lie-in

Fingers crossed Matty gets the ok to deserve a mini -break

Morning - not liking the look of the weekend forecast either  Maybe they'll have got it wrong.  But at least after tonight it looks like the pesky frosts will have moved on

Planting out Lupins

I will be waiting til the frosts are gone before I plant mine out.  I'll harden them off for a week or two first.  I did this last year and got flowers in August, but this year those same plants have happily survived their first winter and I expect flowers in June as normal.
