Hope Ma is ok Dove - might be a blessing if she doesn't remember this time.  Birds are going for it here too - do they know something we don't? Is spring really just around the corner?

Stay safe Verdun, pottie pam and anyone else down in the southwest - sounds horrendous.  I hate wind most of all - v scary.

Loved those hellebores Fidget - many pages ago now, but i am only just catching up with you all.

enjoy evening with your son tomorrow Lizzie.   I will be out on the razzle tomorrow myself, so will be absent for a while .....

What are people sowing right now?

Louise - i always "sprout" mine indoors and then move them out.

I find that if i don't start flowers like rudbeckia off in mid Feb it is a struggle to get flowers out of them til summer is almost over. So i will stick with my tried and tested method of flowers in Feb, tomatoes etc etc in March

However, i am in the south east, so that maybe why it works

Its my first go at dahlias too - folks on here recommended Bishops Children, so i thought i'd give them a go!  Done delphs and rudbeckias before with some success.  Exciting, isn't it

Late home - somehow tea didn't happen.  Toblerone cheesecake would hit the spot nicely
