Morning Dove, Morning Yvie
Keep meaning to ask .....which bit of the Solent are you looking out on SolentWind ? I am originally a SolentGirl (grew up in Hythe, of the ferry fame).
Best get a wriggle on ....
Wow Wonky. Marathon post you are obviously getting a post-flu adrenalin rush. Hope Hubby is on the mend very soon too - sounds like you have both been pretty poorly.
Sorry your evening out wasn't all you had hoped for Pat.
Hope Panda has wakes up with a pain-free mouth ......ouch. And good luck with the house and the breach baby for Yvies's second born (been there - C section not too bad with a first baby, just a pain not being able to drive for an age afterwards).
Weekend nearly here. Just discovered GW has been cancelled by the ladies football. Thought it was because of the Masters, which at least has some azaleas to look at. Someone needs to get their priorites sorted
((hugs)) for poorly Panda and her toothipegs (or ex-toothipegs) - sounds painful. Hope today gets it sorted out properly.
And hope Hosta enjoyed the ballet. Green here too.
Slightly later start today as have to drop littlest chicklet off for a holiday revision session later .....but somehow still seem to be in a rush.
Have a great hols DD - hope you find lots of whiffy
Morning all. Welcome to Blighty Lizzie - love the sound of your new front garden .....what have you planted? And have a good trip too DD - seems that all our French Forkers are returning to the motherland at the same time
If you PM me I can pop in to Windsor in my lunch break and get some of the castle and various royal personages
Back to the office again for me (the chicklets are on Easter hols, so MrC will have company at home). Will do me good to have a dose of normality .
Just done the old "put plant babies out for the day, bring them in at night" routine. Think I will prick out some of my seedlings this weekend, so that routine is about to get a whole lot bigger. Good job I am constrained by the size of my windowsills - I get a bit carried away at seed sowing time.
Saw Lesley posting yesterday .....are you back home yet? Hope your Dad is doing ok.
Happy Birthday to our very own Womble
Are you sure you don't have visiting deer Fluffy Cloud? I think tulips are their absolute favourite. They very neatly take the flower buds off - as if they were eating a lollipop. I grow all mine in a fenced off area now.
Going to have to watch it again - didn't notice anything the first time round. Maybe coz I had a glass of white in my hand myself. I think you're right Fairy .....the first series of these things are always the best .....after that you get people with a pre-conceived idea wanting to join in. I actually watched, and enjoyed, the very first series of Big Brother (remember Anna the Nun ??) ......but never again after that.
My thalias haven't appeared yet either - and I'm in the supposedly balmy southeast
Hi Fizzle. I always do my first pricking out into seed compost, the seedlings are still quite tiny then (1 or 2 true leaves). The next pot-on will then be into multi purpose. I don't give them any extra feed at all til I plant them out in the garden at the start of June.
Not sure if that is "right". But it always works well for me
