Morning Winter  Not poked my nose out yet, but OH says theres a frost.

need to find time in the evenings this week to sow some more seeds - time to get my Cosmos and tomatoes going.  I was pleased to see yesterday that my sweetpeas are all germinating nicely.  

And Poldark has been recorded for tonight...was it any good ??

Annabelles my favourite hydrangea, and Orion gets top spot for geraniums.  My kiwi fullmonty is a lovely hosta, and jaqueline postil beats all the other daphnes in my book.  And my constance spry rose is pretty special too

Morning all - even later with my first cuppa than gardeners boy.  But thats what weekends are for.  Chuckling at the mental picture of Beau in her dressing gown - mine is pink and fluffy and is often seen on early morning garden forays ...the neighbours are now used to it

Got the outlaws popping in at some unspecifed time  this pm - will garden til they arrive and then come in and make myself respectable.

Hosta - OH did the same with our old Landrover a couple of years ago.  I had to go and sweet talk a local farmer, with a VERY big wheeled tractor, to rescue It

Anyone done any gardening today?

Not a lot of planning goes on here - mostly finding things to fill gaps.  I am rubbish at visualising what something will look like til its grown.  OHs much better at it.  But, over the years I am beginning to get it looking how I want it ....just need to be brave at moving my mistakes
