Lizzie, Joyce, my typing also takes ages toappear, and the screen jumps round too.  Had a go at trying to get it resolved (see the iPad freezing thread) but the developers can't replicate the problem, so we seem no nearer a solution. Maybe it is down to some of the adverts (that was the latest suggestion)

Morning peeps

Just been for a dawn wander round the garden.....our magnolia is positively glowing in the early light

Love it when we escape the frosts at this time of year

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

Sarah Raven catalogue just arrived with a free P&P code for orders before 23rd April......she doesn't have helenium Waltraut, but does have moorheim beauty for £4.95 .... Would that fit the bill?

Great to see Clari and Pdoc popping in - sounds like real progress being made Chez Clari.  Hope the job works out whichever way you hope for.

Morning lovely peeps

Hope Hosta dropped off in the end. And  for Fairy's non-walk . And hope that Amberspy is feeling a bit better .....why do we always go down with lurgies just as a holiday starts .....I guess the system relaxes and come the bugs

I ache.  Two thirds of the 6 tonne compost delivery has now been spread on the flowerbeds - luckily transported by a trailer, not by wheelbarrow.  But still, quite a lot of trug lifting.  However, it looks fab.  Actually pleased to be going to work for a bit of a rest
