No snow forecast here Lily, and we are quite close to you.  Meant to warm up on Weds when the next lot of wet weather comes in .....

Morning all - pretty icy here too.  Got back to the station at gone midnight last night and our car was frozen solid - couldn't even get the boot open.  The frost must have come down very quickly on an already very wet landscape.  BTW Richard II was superb, and DT was amazing - complete with flowing ginger locks !!

Tried some snowdrops, but they really weren't happy there - after a couple of years i dug them up and rehoused them.

but cyclamen coum is a great idea - i have some clumps that are spreading elsewhere - i shall move a few and see what happens

Cleome - garden revival

They look fantastic Bex !  Can you remember what type they were and where you got the seeds?  

I have started to do some research and found references to the "sparkler" and "queen"  series, but not sure which is best to try for a first timer.  Also whether i need to put in an online order with a specialist seed company, or whether i will find them in garden centres ?

Lawn revival got me thinking

Can't help you with info on lawncare companies.  We just keep mowing ours, and as long as what is growing in it is green then don't worry too much

Off to London today to see Richard II.  Its my favourite Shakespeare (because i studied it at school), and David Tennant plays the lead role.  Its had rave reviews, so i am hoping it will be good.

Before that i will find time to wander round the garden in the daylight ( a rare treat at the moment) just to see whats growing !
