Paul Scherer is another nice dark tulip (in my opinion anyway; I have many in the garden) she might be interested in!

Potted up the first of my sea holly chunks of root; most of them have off shoots so I'm feeling positive.
I've also convinced myself that these definately don't break the no-new-plants-til-the-vegetable-garden-is-finished as they were SAVED from certain death in a SUPERMARKET reduced BIN. So it's hardly like I searched them out in the garden centre. Definately not. Also I paid cash so you can't even produce evidence that I brought them

Yeah that rule remains safe!

Morning all. I had completely let it pass it by that May was so close! I am not ready for May!

I did however just pick up some Sea Holly bulbs? from Tesco reduced to 45p for 5 (??3 full price) as they say "plant by 30th April". I don't think they'll notice an extra day!

Oh; all the police yesterday? "searching for a wanted man"
sometimes it's best not to ask.

I gave his lordship a lift into the city (to the street next to where I work; I was in the same traffic jam on both sides of the road! There must be a law against that) for a meal out with work mates...
... this means I need to stay awake til late so I can pick him and a chum up.

Why did I agree to this the night before another scout camp (normally can't get them to go to bed before midnight at best) ???

Hosta fan a friend had their knee done latest year. It will get worse before it gets better because our bodies are complete arses. But call your doctor if you're concerned. Are you having physio? Are you following their instructions inch by inch?
Because there will be hell to pay it you're not!!!

Oh Dove and Wonky. As sad as I am for you, I am so happy for your (grand)mother that she was able to go peacefully. I hope that you treasure your memories and have plenty of giggles at them.
