Sadly, my train doesn't look like that either Lesley
Had forgotten it was red nose day - lots of them about already. Hope it doesn't mean GW is cancelled tonight . I have a long day ahead, but should be back in time to see my weekly dose of Gardening tv.
Hope those with a gardening day ahead of them have fun (jealous sigh) and those who have visitors or are visiting enjoy themselves. SYL

You're right - I did mean hellebores  Will get out there with the bfb this weekend. Mulching might have to wait til later, as I have too many bulbs in that bed to mulch until the leaves die down.  Thanks for the tip.

Lovely pics all - glad the snowdrops have taken well Panda

Verd - you have beautiful hostas - mine are very puny in comparison.  Am I meant to feed them, and if do, when.??

foxglove seedlings

It always amazes me how small foxglove seedlings are - and yet they grow into such robust plants.  They are far smaller at seedling stage than anything else I grow.  The lupins are positive bruisers in comparison

Did someone say cupcake

Finally finished birthday cake ... Long story ... But here it is.... You can help yourself to virtual slices once the birthday girl has blown the candles out (at least it gives the smoke alarm a workout)
