Happy Easter to you all  Easter Bunny has just been - but the egg hunting has yet to begin.  

Family descending today - nice long walk on the cards, then roast dinner .  

But first, I must go visit my greenhouse babies- be warned Wonky - it can become a large part of your life at this time of year

Gorgeous clematis Hosta. I've had a white koreana one on my wishlist for a couple of years - just need to think of somewhere to put it.

Thanks for the recipe offer Obxx - saw it too late.  Used an internet one - seems to have worked out ok. 

All seedlings pricked out - as usual some of them drooped alarmingly in protest, but I seem to remember that happening before and they recover overnight.....fingers crossed.

off to find Yvie's pond thread .......

Lovely to hear you had a good day in the garden LG, and looking forward to before and after pics of Yvie's pond

My favourite tipple 

Busy day - got nearly all my seed trays pricked out - just Cosmos and tomatoes to go.  Then came in and took Dad for a whizz round Wisley - we took it easy, but he said it is the furthest he has walked since his hospital stay over Christmas - so that is a good thing.

Now looking forward to Gardeners' World.

Can I have every Friday off please
