No ideas yet on Bday plant - but will have fun this week doing some mental shopping !

Never been to Russia myself - so will be interested to hear.  Would love to go to Moscow and StP, but never really considered the rest.  Studying Russian history was always my favourite - all those Tsar's and revolutions.  Chicklet has just started herself, and I have been digging out all my "must read" books on the subject (she is delighted - not)

Morning  Dove  and Brum.  Pitch black, so can't even give a weather report.  Countdown really on now Dove!  When is the great Russian adventure??

I have a bday coming up soon (shhh, its a secret) and Dad has said he will take me to a Garden Centre and let me choose !!  So I must start thinking which section I want to head for.  I like plants that come in to my garden like that - good associations.

Anyway - time to scrub up and face the world.  Onwards and upwards .....

No cake here - no gardening either. Only good thing about a rainy weekend is that i got to the bottom of my ironing pile for the first time since June. OH has decided he needs to set an early alarm for tomorrow - its the first time for so long that he has a choice of work shirts he is worried he will be overwhelmed

Agree with you Jo - lemon queen puts on quite a show here too.  Mine are right at the back of the border, so i am happy for them to get as tall as they like
