HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 22/02/2015 at 08:56

Deep frost here, so my big gardening day will have to wait til it thaws a bit.  Rain forecast this afternoon, so might not fit much in after all.  My borders are in desperate need of a cut down and tidy up (yes, I know I am very late with this) and I am beginning to feel I'm playing catcth up already.....and its only February.  Will prioritise my Group 3 clematis, and then take it from there.

Hope poorly, bunged up, coughy peeps are soon on the mend

Morning

sun is shining (no snow in this part of surrey) and have already been out to see whats growing.  Signs of my new daffs, the new hellebores that I thought had died might actually have shoots (if not flowers) after all, my snowdrops are lovely and the whole place smells of daphne.  Came back in cold but grinning.

lesley - sprouting seeds are lupins and foxgloves - 5more trays yet to show signs of life, but it has only been 6 days.

It's my birthday

Harlequin ladybirds

We have so many here (mostly in the window frames) that destroying them would be futile - and they eat the aphids just as well as the natives, so they are tolerated, if not warmly welcomed.  Its a bit like the grey squirrels - I'd rather see reds, but that is now a pipe dream here, so would rather have grey than none at all.  Would be awful if nothing was bounding round the trees, or playing acrobatics with the bird feeders!
