Parkers have just replaced a wintersuckle I bought from them in January which failed to come into leaf.  No quibbles, and replacement looks very healthy - so thought I should put in a good word for them

Morning Dove - enjoy your lunch.  Hope the horses are soon secured Lizzie, and that MrsG's head/cold have improved.

More rain here, but sun in the end yesterday .... Good growing weather again.  Birds managed to empty the bird feeder in a record 4 hours yesterday (i was working at home, so saw it go down from 1-5pm).  Are they feeding chicks already i wonder, or just getting themselves ready?

No to everyone who asks for donations ? Do you agree or disagree with this ?

OH is out, so time for gardening TV catchup

OL - here are my 48 free lavenders - last years in the pots (could have been potted on by now but i've been tardy), and the previous years in the garden in groups of 7.  I think they are well worth it, and will have another go this year - if i don't use them they always go well at plant sales

 Think i have pond envy....... And alpine envy .........
