Morning all.  Hope the ark is nearly ready Hosta .....we are bracing ourselves for similar here today.  I also saw Fidget's news piece about the big freeze.  Don't fancy another winter like 2009/10 - I couldn't (or maybe wouldn't) drive the car for weeks

few pages back now, but loving Fidget's flowers in copper pots .....THE big day is getting closer

Morning all.  Not keen on these dark mornings ....roll on March.  I have raspberries still out there to pick, but I'm not going out there with a torch, so raisins in my porridge will have to do

Pat - feel your pain on the frenzied media speculation....we are enduring similar.  Hope the doc sorts you out.

On the lupins ......not sure you can make more plants that way, but they are easy to grow from seed, so maybe try that next spring if you want loads more plants

what does your garden mean to you

To me it means fresh air (even if its not a nice day), lots of excitement when new things grow, and a place to forget everything else ........including (and especially) h******k
