Morning

sun is shining (no snow in this part of surrey) and have already been out to see whats growing.  Signs of my new daffs, the new hellebores that I thought had died might actually have shoots (if not flowers) after all, my snowdrops are lovely and the whole place smells of daphne.  Came back in cold but grinning.

lesley - sprouting seeds are lupins and foxgloves - 5more trays yet to show signs of life, but it has only been 6 days.

It's my birthday

Lesley - you lot  keep me sane by chatting about gardens and plants ... Always does me good to remember my garden in times of work crises

Harlequin ladybirds

We have so many here (mostly in the window frames) that destroying them would be futile - and they eat the aphids just as well as the natives, so they are tolerated, if not warmly welcomed.  Its a bit like the grey squirrels - I'd rather see reds, but that is now a pipe dream here, so would rather have grey than none at all.  Would be awful if nothing was bounding round the trees, or playing acrobatics with the bird feeders!

Gardening today

Morning all

Sowed my first batch of seeds yesterday .....just peeked......nothing yet

Expecting a nightmarishly busy week at work, so probably won't be posting much - but  I will be looking in.  You lot keep me sane when the world around me is going bonkers
