Hostafan is an expert, so will give you chapter and verse, but I carved mine in two with a breadknife and repotted in early spring, just when the new shoots were starting to show.  It worked

I heard the story of the young man who died after tireless campaigning Fairy - there were clips of him addressing Nicola Sturgeon in the Scottish Parlt on the R4 evening news programme.  Very sad, but also inspiring.  Had also not heard about lettuces maybe radionews is the way to go.  Still can't avoid POTUS though

Exhausted after yesterdays escapades, and feeling slightly miserable. Think its beginning to hit me that another Chicklet will be flying the nest soon.  So a trip to Wisley is planned for a fix of snowdrops, winter stems and maybe even some hellebores.

Saw that cartoon too LG - struck a chord with me too .....I've been quoting it all week

love old photos Lily ....always makes me wonder what they were thinking, and what they went off to do next (probably a quick  change out of their Sunday best )

just need to pack a bag, then setting off for the land of the scousers (my Dad's one).  Sat nav is saying 4 hours, but think thats optimistic on a Friday afternoon

((Hugs)) for LilyP, and tissues and sympathy for Dove

Not liking the weather forecast either - guess who is driving up to Liverpool tomorrow(Uni visit for littlest Chicklet).  Think we might get blown away.

Morning all

Good to hear you're having such a great holiday Tbird .  Glad that the wandring Flatters has returned, but sorry that Dove's lurgy has too 

Was greeted by the gorgeous smell of daphne when I came home and got out of the car last night - Jaqueline maybe late this year, but she's making up for it already.  Love that Grumpy snowdrop Lizzie .......that ones already on my wishlist . My garden ones have a long way to go before they are ready to flower - good couple of weeks I'd guess.  And only now starting to see the odd daffodil appearing on the verges, where often they start before Christmas round here.  Definitely a late start here in Surrey.

Footballers - daft money, but they are washed up at 30 and have to make it last a lifetime - need to divide the eyewatering sums by 4 or 5 really.  Bet there aren't many of them saving for a rainy day though
