HELLO FORKERS!

Fairy - sorry, jargon alert - Duke of Edinburgh - the scheme that makes teenagers tramp round the countryside with rucksacks on their backs, sleep under canvas, and (and this is the most arduous bit ) survive a weekend without their phone

Lovely, Fidget.  You just need one in snow to complete the set - maybe next year, as think we have escaped the white stuff this year, suppose we got lots of other stuff instead

Loved your slideshow David - have just been transported to a summer's day

I have hellebore envy too Matty - that one is a stunner

Planted my primroses, violas, Mrs Betty and some daffs for indoors.  a couple of my outdoor daffs are showing their first yellow, and just been for a good long tramp to help littlest chicklet break in some new walking boots (DofE looms). Think i might have to have a snooze .

RHS London Shows.

Thanks Mike - i had always intended to make time to visit one of the RHS London shows, but doesn't sound too much fun.  Do you think the extra people came from the moving of the day away from mid week - or is gardening experiencing a popularity boom?

Roses and tulips are all behind bars for that reason Dove.  But quite a lot survives outside the cage - including my growing collections of hellebores (i blame you lot for that) and snowdrops.  OH is busy making more fortress protection for our new veg/fruit patch as we speak

Thank you Daniel and friends - much appreciated support outside office hours

Lovely day here - have some planting to do and some seeds to sow.  Late last night, whilst returning from taxi duties, we saw a new, much smaller deer on the side of the road - not much bigger than a fox.  Which i think means that the muntjacs have moved in alongside our usual roe.  Hope they eat the same things, or some of my "safe" plants might be about to come a cropper
