Lesley - I cover everything up if the forecast is 5 or below - we are in a frost pocket so often get blitzed when the surrounding area escapes.  All tucked snugly away now

Glad you had such a good time Dove.  Once spent a frustrating couple of hours stuck in traffic in Stamford, heading for the A1.  I did think what a lovely place it looked though.  Probably should have parked up, wandered round and waited for the traffic to subside, but I was still 3 hours from home so I "persevered"

Uplifting tales of blossom.  My amelanchier is going for it for the first time (year 3), and my two new amanagowas have obliged with blossom.  It is lovely....thankyou Yvie and Matty for the recommendation

Got to go away tomorrow - yukkity yukk yukk (that's a Hosta-ism)

Morning Winter  Another beautiful day dawning ....enjoy working in your little bit of paradise (can say that with conviction, having seen your pics on the other thread)

seem to have escaped the frost again - my pieris is still a-flaming

No singing endorphins here .....it might work for me, but others are less than appreciative of my efforts

Looks fabulous Wintersong .....you must be so pleased that all that planning paid off  Love your great bowl of tulips too - fantastic colour.

Small cucumbers. And pumpkins.

A great mini cucumber is minimunch - but it is the fruits that are mini, not the plant.

Morning peeps  Blue skies here, with a hint of frost.  Just been to the GH, and my seedlings are looking good - glad I had them all under their own cosy lids though.
