Hello Forkers - April edition

My favourite tipple 

Busy day - got nearly all my seed trays pricked out - just Cosmos and tomatoes to go.  Then came in and took Dad for a whizz round Wisley - we took it easy, but he said it is the furthest he has walked since his hospital stay over Christmas - so that is a good thing.

Now looking forward to Gardeners' World.

Can I have every Friday off please

Gorgeous GD. Bet you'll spend many hours watching it, and its inhabitants, over the next few years.  Seriously green with envy here

Here goes - Beaus Mum inspired me with the purple stripeys last year, and I am rather pleased with the partners I picked - 2 pots are the same bulbs, but one slightly further on than the other

Love the tale of robins Liri ❀️

The roses are Natasha R - although in our garden they will be called Chicklet's rose πŸ˜‰

On a train back to Slough for the second leg of my day.  Walked from Paddington to my meeting using google maps - a bit like in a car, it takes you weird and wonderful routes.  Been down tiny avenues of mews cottages, and grand terraces of Belgravia type mansions.  Love looking at tbw front gardens - all seriously "designed".....lots of grey slate, euphorbia and white tulips !!

and ceonothus is blooming here already 😡
