Morning all.  Slightly later start for me this morning - working at home, as I have to get something written, and it will be easier without the distractions of an open plan office.

Meant to say yesterday (few pages back now) - hello to Orchid/Sunflower Lady  Hope all is going well with the business, and that your lttle men are on good form

Here in Surrey it is sometimes April, but has also been late May. So I never risk things til after the last May bank holiday - which coincides with the schools half term holiday.

Hayloft supplied half my flower borders . When I was first getting going I used to go for all their special offers......7 years on numerous phlox, shasta daisies, asters and a good little collection of hellebores are all flourishing 

I was particularly impressed last year, when I had forgotten the name of one of the asters.  They looked up my order from 6 years before.......and I now know she is called Marie Ballard.

Dreadful news  I often work in London, used to walk over Westminster Bridge twice a day.  First I heard of today was Chicklet texting me to check I wasn't there the tables do sometimes turn.

Thinking of all those with loved ones involved, and so grateful for our police and medics
