So misty out there I can't see the greenhouse.  

Happy Saint George Day!

Morning all. His lordship left at 04:00 today and the dog and I have been unable to settle since: I think it'll be an early night all round! Knee is too bad to take advantage of these extra hours so we're making quite the wish list.

Came upstairs to find my orange tree has dropped its leaves


chilli peppers

 My chillies so far. I had real difficulties with germination owing to a certain Lordship who kept turning the propagator off (then add flu and suddenly its almost May!) so I only have Scotch Bonnet and Jalapenos.

Evening all. 

Verdun - I have the stocks they can be brought back into commission so very very easily.

Morning all. I'm in the not allowed to sing camp I'm afraid. Even the vicar suggested I just mouth the words. Would whistling (which is endangered I believe) still release the good stuff?

Knee cap duct taped back into place as I'm determined to get my classroom cleaned and organised today. Stop laughing I've read all about this organised lark - it sounds like it has potential! 

Frog Spawn count

I've just been given this link to record your frog spawn sightings. Though ours has all hatched and areas of the pond are now a black mass its still worth doing!

Well my knee cap is no longer where it should be - old injury that flares up. Just in time for a long week including a 10:30 (Saturday) til 18:00 (Sunday) sat at the museum (hope its not cold!)

Rest, apply the brace, drink cider (apples are good for you!) and hope Reggie doesn't realise he's not had a walk this evening. At least all my pots got a good watering on Saturday. 

Sweet dreams all!
