Morning all

Why do weekends fly by

Got a midweek talk by Cleve West to look forward to this week - so i'll get some garden time in that way.

Enjoy yourselves, whatever you are up to

Spent hours weeding, but only cleared a very small patch.  I hate sheeps sorrel with a passion.  Reckon its going to take me every weekend til Chr*******as.

Got out on a bike ride before it got dark - 20 miles burnt a few calories.

looking forward to a bit of Downton here too

I like to keep gardening in the winter (apart from December, when other things take over).  I work indoors all week, so like being outdoors as much as i can at weekends, and the garden gives me a reason to be out there.

got so much weeding to do for the next few weekends, can't think about letting up yet. At least yesterdays rain will have softened the ground to make it a slightly easier task.

Oh Stacey - like Verd, i was so excited to see you posting, then so sorry to read your news.  Keep fighting girl.  And we'll all be gunning for you too.  Lovely that you can see all your favourite plants from your chair - they'll all be waiting for you in the spring.  ((Hugs)) galore.

Great to see KEF back - we've missed you - hope you had a fab time.  And you and fidget must have crossed in mid-air - one jetting in, one jetting out.  Fidget - hope there are many wonderful dives on your remote island (v impressed that there is internet by your pool!)
