Morning Dove

Good luck Hosta Saw something yesterday that will gladden your heart ...a report on the latest version of the EU reform document:

A revised draft was leaked earlier this week. The most significant change being to the economic governance section, which now clarifies that there will still be a single rulebook for banks. Most of the other changes were minor, but pedants were glad to see a split infinitive fixed."

Brrrrrr.  Morning all. Freezy white out there .....but the good news is that its light enough to see how white it is.  And it was light when I left the office last night too. And the birds are tweeting madly out there (someone has to compensate for Stephen Fry's silence) .......call me Sherlock, but I think Spring might be on its way 

Snowdrops

Thanks Bob - looks like slugs are the culprits.  That would explain why it is more of a problem this winter, when there were few early frosts to stop them in their tracks

Morning Wish I was on half term, but sadly, work beckons  At least the roads will be quiet.

Sympathies to those having sleeping troubles - it rarely happens to me (for which I am very thankful) but when it does its pants

Feeling a bit creaky this morning .....weeding obviously uses muscles that don't normally get used

I had a moment of weaknesss at the garden centre...

Had a wonderful day gardening. Felt good to be out there at last. Lots of things emerging which made weeding a quite exciting experience (I don't get out much).

seeds sown too .....they have been going about 3 hours now, but when I checked 5 minutes ago there was no sign of germination yet. Thanks for the cephalaria warning Hosta, I will treat them with caution.  Saw them at a yellow book garden last summer and fell in love  - like scabious on speed
