HELLO FORKERS!

I'm going to see MD this Weds () - maybe I'll ask him

Never attempted to pronounce it before, so it will be easy for me to become one of the new "nip-hoff" brigade.

had rain, but not much - could do with some more, but gentle and overnight please

Need to get the sewing machine out today - our garden umbrella needs patching.  Thinking back, i think we have had it 16 years, so can't complain.

will also be potting up some sweetpeas, sowing some more foxgloves (outside this time) and feeding my clematis

Good news about Shadow.  Also, meant to ask Lizzie, did your seedlings survive the attentions of your housesitter??

Beautiful clematis Wintersong  Which ones are they?  Pink one is particularly pretty.

Matt - you have a good load of plantlets coming on

Berghill - wonderful to see your garden like that - it puts your slideshows into lovely context.

 Overslept - somehow the alarmclock went back an hour.    Mr Chicky has launched into school run mode - I can't do rushed mornings

Keeping everything crossed for Shadow

Lesley - I cover everything up if the forecast is 5 or below - we are in a frost pocket so often get blitzed when the surrounding area escapes.  All tucked snugly away now

Glad you had such a good time Dove.  Once spent a frustrating couple of hours stuck in traffic in Stamford, heading for the A1.  I did think what a lovely place it looked though.  Probably should have parked up, wandered round and waited for the traffic to subside, but I was still 3 hours from home so I "persevered"

Uplifting tales of blossom.  My amelanchier is going for it for the first time (year 3), and my two new amanagowas have obliged with blossom.  It is lovely....thankyou Yvie and Matty for the recommendation

Got to go away tomorrow - yukkity yukk yukk (that's a Hosta-ism)

Morning Winter  Another beautiful day dawning ....enjoy working in your little bit of paradise (can say that with conviction, having seen your pics on the other thread)

seem to have escaped the frost again - my pieris is still a-flaming

No singing endorphins here .....it might work for me, but others are less than appreciative of my efforts
