Morning DD, Fidget amd Becky - lots of early morning company on here today  And i can see a faint lightening in the sky already, and the birds are tweeting away.  Hope Dove and Lizzie are feeling better today - sounds like you both have a bad dose of flu

How come the first cup of tea always tastes the best

Lots done there MrsG - now you're all ready for spring.  Whats the plan for your new planting space??

rain and wind now swept in here, but not before I mad a good attempt at cutting back old stems in the borders.  Now looks much better.....weeding and mulching next  Loads of new shoots sprouting away already - they don't seem to mind the daily frosts.  Think I might curl up with a book now

Ours are 7 years old now and never had anything done to them.  Only ever use water and washing up liquid to clean them .  Microfibre cloths for buffing them up were a real find about a year ago - gets them sparkling in no time

Deep frost here, so my big gardening day will have to wait til it thaws a bit.  Rain forecast this afternoon, so might not fit much in after all.  My borders are in desperate need of a cut down and tidy up (yes, I know I am very late with this) and I am beginning to feel I'm playing catcth up already.....and its only February.  Will prioritise my Group 3 clematis, and then take it from there.

Hope poorly, bunged up, coughy peeps are soon on the mend

No gardening done here, but will be going for it big time tomorrow.  Trip to town shopping with the chicklets instead.  Youngest bought a panda jumper .....made me think of forum friends
