Can do the crosslegged thing - years of pilates paying off - but can only touch the ground with my knuckles ....bit like a gorilla

Watching the golf .....want the bloke called Smylie Something to win, just because it is the best name ever.

You'll be up earlier than me Hosta, so wishing you all the best now.  Will be thinking of you tomorrow.

I shall be pricking out and pricking out and potting on today too (although sowing cleomes is on my list -I'm a bit behind you Fidget) .....tomatoes, cosmos, cucumbers, rudbeckias, echinaceas, cephalaria and several sorts of snapdragon .....its all very exciting

But first, littlest Chicklet needs a lift to work ....the good people of Farnham are waiting for their posh coffee

Been to Hyde Hall in October and the autumn colours were stunning.  They have lots of rose beds, so I would imagine June would be good .....put a reminder on Bernard

Nice to have you back Lesley - hope you are now fighting fit

Just in from the garden.  Did a bit of weeding and then sorted out ALL my plastic plant pots ......graded into sizes and colours have no idea how satisfying that job was.  Seems we will be getting warmer after the frost tonight, so I am now ready to prick out seedlings tomorrow.  I am too stingy to write a label for every pot, so i try to plant things in matching pots so I can tell the difference black square, round orange, black with writing on the side ..... Its quite a system. Feel like the gardeing year is really motoring now

And Mr C is back driving again we are returning to normal once more.
