HELLO FORKERS April 2016 Edition

Morning all. Well his lordship has decided that I need a "new" van for my birthday this year. Phew!! I was getting worried that I'd have to start coming up with ideas. He's already found one he likes the look of so fingers crossed. It's even fire engine red so very appropriate!
My current little van is brilliant at what I need to do my job; but it was never brought with a long term plan in plan.

I can't decide if the weather is going to break through enough to risk dresses and summer clothing or whether (unheated victorian building) I ought play it safe and keep the thermals handy.

I use fairy liquid diluted in a squirty bottle that does the trick. Not organic but certainly cheap!

2016 really does seem to be having a bit of a purge doesn't it

Neighbours are enjoying the weather and burning *everything* so my evening to potter in the garden was curtailed somewhat. I wouldn't mind but I've no end that could be burnt that instead I'm hacking up to put in the recycling bin rather than risk disturbing others. How terribly British.

Afternoon all. Glad to hear Marion is okay.

The lawn has been cut (much needed) but I've had to come inside as the neighbour has sparked up a bonfire (still had my washing out; agh!!) and the oder of burnt rather ruins the chances to absorb some vitamin D.

Did someone mention cake?

Morning all!
Woke up to glorious sunshine and chirping birds. what a change from yesterday! Bright yellow daffodils always look better with the sum on them.

I'm trying very hard to stick to my not planting this year so we can focus on the house renovations. I even drove past the garden centre twice yesterday and managed to battle the steering wheel in a straight line. It's AWFUL!! All those empty pots, that naked greenhouse, the untouched compost ... *twitches*

Afternoon all. It's been a grey funny day; it feels as though the moment you turn your back it'll rain. Such a shame that I wasn't in yesterday to make the most of the glorious sunshine I am fed up of drying clothes on the radiators all the while!

When did you plant them? Have they been fed and their soil topped up? Could they be "blind" (Starved) ?
