You're right - I did mean hellebores  Will get out there with the bfb this weekend. Mulching might have to wait til later, as I have too many bulbs in that bed to mulch until the leaves die down.  Thanks for the tip.

Lovely pics all - glad the snowdrops have taken well Panda

Verd - you have beautiful hostas - mine are very puny in comparison.  Am I meant to feed them, and if do, when.??

foxglove seedlings

It always amazes me how small foxglove seedlings are - and yet they grow into such robust plants.  They are far smaller at seedling stage than anything else I grow.  The lupins are positive bruisers in comparison

Did someone say cupcake

Finally finished birthday cake ... Long story ... But here it is.... You can help yourself to virtual slices once the birthday girl has blown the candles out (at least it gives the smoke alarm a workout)

Sorry to hear about your cousin AWB.  I love your way of remembering people though - trees for memories.

So pleased the hongkongers arrived safely LPilly - have a wonderful time with them.  Has little GD changed very much?

Bought the ingredients for Nigellas choc cake last night - it was a hit, and has been requested again.  Will make it this evening, in time for Chicklets 18th(!!!) tomorrow.  Seems like our year of landmark birthdays just goes on and on
