Just a quick pop in, frost predicted tonight for S.Yorks, so close GH's and move stuff that is hardening off, if you don't have a GH.  

Think all should check forecast.

BFN.

Thought it was getting chilly out there! Hopefully all mine are now fully hardened but we'll see. I guess it's what we get after such a hot sunny clear day.

Morning all. Back from a lovely weekend away now laying in bed trying not to disturb my partner as he needs all the rest he can get for today's to do lists before work tomorrow!

Well one can dream!

Hope you've all been behaving yourselves.

Disappearing bulbs

I fear they might be in my garden! I've found about ten bulbs this week alone that have been dug up by some thing scattered on the path to the green house.

Oh Mike! This is not good at all. I hope the doctors have many options available to you and that we will soon have you back happy and healthier than ever. Keep safe and know we'll be thinking of you!!

Morning all!  I had to set my alarm to wake my partner up with his cup of tea early...

Only for him to stay in bed til I normally get up anyway!

Not sure where the logic of my having to wake him up comes from - but even if he tried to be quiet he ends up walking into the bed or turning all the lights on so I guesd I'd be forced awake early anyway. 

 

I've been putting all my plant photos on http://instagram.com/ladyclarington but unfortunately there doesn't seem to be an easy way to share them on here so you are shared my random pictures and not crisp enough close ups!

 

Have a good day everyone!

Lawnmower grumbles...

My thoughts are that if I was the landlord I'd think it was in my interest to provide a cheap lawnmower.  

Trouble for a Landlord is unlike supplying things like fridge (aka plug in, turn on, if it tips over on you that's because you were most likely doing something dodgy) is if a person injured themselves using a lawn mower provided to them where does the Landlord stand in terms of not being sued that it was unsafe / they weren't risk assessed / trained to use it and all other sorts of daft things that stand in the way of common sense? The law is often so wishy washy and people are scared of getting sued over the silliest of things that its often easier not to bother.

Clarington its a strange year and i have seen far to many (natural lady bugs out so soon up north. this year). Let mother Dove do her work. 

Morning Edd! How was Peppa Pig? Yes I've seen many lady birds here (S. Yorkshire)  so I'm hoping they find quite the feast that awaits them as I always get nervous of using washes on plants ( even if they are just for decoration). Shows me I mustn't get complacent just because the flower beds aren't ready - the pots still need attention! 

Look forward to your pallet creations!
