Hello Forkers - February 2017 Edition

Mark, Flowers - it was Welford Park just outside Newbury ......(home of bake-off🍰🍰🍰) .....very impressed that you can spot a Berkshire snowdrop when you see it Mark .  Haven't seen the Hen&Chicken snowdrops Hosta, but I know that area - might pop up next weekend for a nosey.


Had my first weekend gardening of the year - first one that wasn't either Frosty or waterlogged.  Felt good to be out there. And just sowed my first propagator seeds too.


Pdoc -FiL moved in to a place like that last summer - its made the world of difference to him - he is positively cheerful .  Says he wished he had done it years ago. Still independent, but lots of neighbours on hand for a chat, to watch telly or do jigsaws with in their communal lounge.

❀️❀️❀️❀️ True love indeed ....hats off to you Mr Beau !  (Or should it be Beaus Dad )


Not round much at the moment - works a bit manic - but watching you all from afar . If someone could start my seeds off on th windowsills, prune my apple trees and raspberry canes, and maybe make a bit of a start on the weeding I'd be very grateful

Was delighted to read about the found dress too πŸ‘°πŸΌπŸ‘°πŸΌ  But thought it weird that the insolvency company had now seized it

I'm on the sofa too  But no knitting here, just piles of gardening magazines 


Snowdrops were a bit of a whiteout - and those that you could see were tightly shut so you couldn't see their markings.  Popped in to our local independent GC on the way home for birdfood and left with two mahonias - Charity and Winter Sun.


A couple of hours relaxing is on the cards, then must go and get my glad rags on .....Italian restaurant in London tonight for the final celebration of littlest Chicklet's birthday with uncles, aunts, cousins and Grandad

What lovely bottle gardens Sandra


Loving Tutu and freckles too. And the cyclamen pot is soooooo dainty

Early, mid and late blueberries?

I have a couple of earliblue that crop heavily, early and are tasty .....but I'm in Surrey.  Looking to add two "Chandler" to extend the season.  Nothing better than going out and picking your own blueberries and raspberries every morning to liven up breakfast

Snow here too Beau  Not quite a blanket, but definitely a covering.


Going snowdrop visiting this morning - the local galanthophile opens his garden every other year - he has a beautiful collection.  His garden is woodland, so don't expect he will have had enough snow to cover them completely.


But first I need a cuppa - the house is filled with yoofs who stayed over after littlest Chicklet had a mini birthday party last night  Not sure how many I will need to step over before I find the kettle
