Morning all - good to see PMs working properly again.  Tech team have been pretty swift recently

Today i plan to cut back my penstemmon, and mulch as much as i can with the mountain of FYM.  My clematis from Taylors arrived yesterday - beautiful plants at great prices.  I will never buy a full price clematis from a GC again ( the little ones are ok for growing on a bit).  One of the plants was not what i ordered - quick phone call, profuse apologies, new one arriving on tuesday, and i can keep the mistake.  So now have a Marjorie montana, to plant up a tree somewhere

Morning all - hope you enjoy the day with your son Dove, and that those that work have a good day.  I have one more day to do, then a lovely break for a week.  Weather looks to be good so lots of gardening opportunities

Clueless's blog was still going last time i looked

Morning all - we escaped the forecast frost - and looks like a lovely day out there.  Think i will treat myself to a GC visit in my lunch break - need more MPC and bird seed.  My pots of tulips are tantalisingly close to flowering ......

They'll just say things like 'can I have a party?' and 'can you get me that top - it's only  £89' and 'can you give me a lift to Birmingham next Saturday'. 


And then can you pick me up too ... at 11.30pm ??
