I'd be happy to pay more for British milk, just like I do for free range stuff - but i'd worry about whether the extra got passed back through to the farmers. Maybe a return to the milk marketing board is not such a bad idea - make us all aware of the choices we are making
Yvie - i do as Lyn does and grow nerines in pots that i keep in an unheated GH all winter. I get flowers that way, whereas the ones planted in the garden produce leaves every year, but never any flowers (they've been in 5 years, so i've given up hope. Should dig them up really, but they are doing no harm). Hope you made it through the snow for Nanna duties
Littlest chicklet is on a school trip (GCSE mocks finished yesterday) to the theatre in London. Treat for the girls - less so for the parents who have to be there for pick up at 11.45pm. Need to find a way to stay awake til then. If this evening's snow arrives I will be sending OH - i hate hate hate driving in the white stuff
Just read back ...Good luck with the new garden Hollie - keep us posted with your progress
Don't know what it is, but it has made me smile Roll on spring
Glad I don't have cows, or any other critters, to see to this morning - its cold out there. Well at least my yellow rattle seeds should be stratifying nicely. Think my aeonium swarzkopf is probably a gonner tho.
Thanks for the reminder Dove - would have missed it without your nudge. Loved the Blakeney seals - been there a few times in the summer months on one of the little boat trips. And the tawny owl asleep ..... Hope he doesn't come a cropper
Temperature differences can be quite something can't they. Far more aware of them now most cars have temperature readouts. We have a long straight road here where the temp is 2-3* lower in the middle than at either end, and often the middle is misty when it is clear elsewhere for miles around. The chicklets say its haunted......but is probably to do with the fact there is a large lake in the middle
It was a good move getting OH to do Flynn duties this morning. I'd wait til April before taking over
Good Morning one and all
Chilly here - expect it is much worse elsewhere - even Verd might have had a frost last night. Keep warm and safe - its slippy out there
Great pics panda - what a lovely place to stay
Caterpillar? Who said caterpillar?
