Just been to check on my GH babies, and I'm sure they've grown overnight

Soggy out there after yesterdays rain, but looking like a better day to come.  Our magnolia has got into its stride now and is shining out there in the early morning light ....making me feel quite poetic.

We still have a roast dinner once a week - the girls love them.

Morning Dove, Evening Pat

Wish I hadn't stayed up to watch the end of the golf now

Just been out to the GH (admiring my newly weeded beds on the way) to check my seedling babies survived their first night away from the windowsill.  All seems well.

Littlest chicklet back at sixth form today ......that means a train to catch.  No dawdling for me now

Can do the crosslegged thing - years of pilates paying off - but can only touch the ground with my knuckles ....bit like a gorilla

You'll be up earlier than me Hosta, so wishing you all the best now.  Will be thinking of you tomorrow.

I shall be pricking out and pricking out and potting on today too (although sowing cleomes is on my list -I'm a bit behind you Fidget) .....tomatoes, cosmos, cucumbers, rudbeckias, echinaceas, cephalaria and several sorts of snapdragon .....its all very exciting

But first, littlest Chicklet needs a lift to work ....the good people of Farnham are waiting for their posh coffee

Been to Hyde Hall in October and the autumn colours were stunning.  They have lots of rose beds, so I would imagine June would be good .....put a reminder on Bernard
