Confession Times!

Posted: 15/03/2015 at 10:18

Similar confession here too - although less athletic and more self inflicted

I used a nice new pen to write the labels for my seven seed trays a few weeks ago.  However it was not permanent and all the writing turned into watery blobs that then ran to the bottom of each label in a puddle.  So I am now playing guess the seedling  Biggest problem will be two different sorts of rudbeckia - no hope of working out which is which til late July ......there goes my colour co-ordination for this year

Good Morning twice 

Great day yesterday - meal was lovely and company was lively - lots of laughs.  Waiters did the whole sing to Chicklet routine - much to her embarrassment

Forecast is grey and misty, but I'm heading out there anyway - have nerines to pot up, lupins and a euphorbia to plant and some hellebores to feed.  And a special tree to pot on too.

those quiche look scrummy

Hey! What happened to eclipse today?

Off for a day/evening meal in Covent Garden as a family celebration for Chicklet's bday - Dads, sisters, nephews, nieces and oh's all descending from various parts of the country.  Should be fun  Gardening planned tomorrow though - my fav way to spend Mothers Day

Cucumber seeds

Posted: 13/03/2015 at 07:29
They all seem pretty dear, but then i have always had 100% germination, and only need a couple of plants, so maybe not too bad. I like mini munch - but, as you can probably guess, they are the tiny ones. You get so many on one plant that we find it hard to keep up. Cucumber sandwiches anyone ????

Sadly, my train doesn't look like that either Lesley
Had forgotten it was red nose day - lots of them about already. Hope it doesn't mean GW is cancelled tonight . I have a long day ahead, but should be back in time to see my weekly dose of Gardening tv.
Hope those with a gardening day ahead of them have fun (jealous sigh) and those who have visitors or are visiting enjoy themselves. SYL
