Clari - i have a wormery like that - i cooked mine on the first attempt.  I now have a shady spot outside the back door, so should really give it another go.

Gorgeous tulips Mrs G - and am desperate to see the arch.  Tweenies bring back happy memories for me - as do the Wiggles and Fun Song Factory .

most of the day spent shopping and cleaning ready for guests tomorrow, but did get out there and plant another 5 clematis.  Think i might have a bit of an obsession going on

Wonderful Lizzie - your euphorbia are huge.  Are the light blue mounds in the same photo the creeping phlox?

My hydrangea paniculata's are very slowly coming into bud now - they are much slower than the other sorts, so would not give up hope yet.

"Haphazard" worked well yesterday as a gardening style, so will try it again today . Got some borders edged (Beechgrove trick worked wonders), some plants planted and some mulching done.  I have lots of pricking out and potting on to do too - but saving that til Monday as it is a job i can do in the GH whilst it rains outside

Fidget - love that swing.  Engineer comments also made me laugh - have one for a father, and then compounded trouble by marrying one too.

Hope the sleepover is silent, and all others sleep well ....  And tomorrow is another gardening day .... Yippee.

and come back Stacey - we're missing you

Wow Lyn - that is pretty special

We used to leave ours on (although we are increasingly a tablet family now .... funny how things move on without you really noticing) certainly ones at work are left on all the time and it doesn't seem to harm them.  Hibernate is a good idea to save power though.

Just to pass on a good report for J Parkers (who I have seen criticism of on here before).  I ordered a winter honeysuckle from them in February.  By early this month it was obvious it was not going to burst into bud - and was a dead stick.  I wrote and told them, sent a photo, and have just had an email to say a replacement is on its way.  So well done to them, and credit where credit's due
