Good Mornng from sunny Nottingham  (actually expect its cloudy, but havn't opened the curtains yet).  Another Uni open day for Chicklet.  Looking forward to this one as its where I went, so a few trips down memory lane to be had.  Drove past our old house last night on the way in .....happy days

My only excuse is that they were a)30% off in the bareroot sale b) no postage as we live close enough to pick them up c) another 10% off as a GW subscriber.....so i saved nearly as much as i spent.  Does that mean I'm in profit for the day so far  Maybe I should go back and spend my ill gotten gains on more plants before it disappears on something else (like groceries or cleaning products)

I grew the double click cranberries last year - they were gorgeous, and didn't get too tall. Have ordered more this year - from Chiltern seeds (£2.45)


 This year I will plant them somewhere where they don't clash with the rudbeckias

Morning All

Lily - went for a wander down the lanes, did a bit of high street shopping, stopped for afternoon tea, had a walk on the beach and a promenade on the pier ....we did it all.  Fun times

might get out in the garden today.  I have a mighty atom that needs planting and some brambles that need attacking and a great deal of just looking to do.
