evening all

Matty - I have kept my New years resolution of going for a 30 minute "march" in my lunch hour every day, and the best bit is stalking people's front gardens on my route.  Its been fascinating watching spring springing day by day.  Some glorious magnolias at the moment......and the ceonothus won't be much longer.

working in a different office at the moment - my normal base has GC's that I can include in my "marches" (gets a bit expensive if I'm in there every day - sticky label syndrome there too).  But new office only has a Homebase ....went in today, and all looked half dead....v disappointing.  Might save my bank balance though

Off to check my seedlings

Come in Artjak...your time is up

I really look forward to your slideshows Berghill - and this one is wonderful.  Love the magnolias, the pulsatillas, have pond envy, and puss-cat is pretty cute too

Do you ever open it up to the public??

There is a franchise company called Stumpbusters .....we have used them a few times ....most recently this week!  Reasonable prices and do a great job.  I would see if there are any near you

No frost, but chilly.  Just about to pop to the GH to uncover my seedling babies - but maybe another cuppa first.  and after that, the saltmines call

Yvie - your garden is completely stunning  if thats the result when you keep moving things, then I should get my spade out more often
