Received your PM thank you KEF. I am now sat amongst seed packets and "what the hell did I save this bit of paper for" bits and pieces from my "gardening bag" sorting you some chilli willies out! No traumatising your neighbours too much will you. I mean I'm all for beautiful plants on the windowsill but are you sure they'll get the joke?;)

(Other contents of said bag include toilet roll inner tubes, two tubes of peak polish, three marker pens, a knife, spare hair band, and three mini clothes pegs...)


Oooh I'm all excited about the new season now! Must sit on my hands and show no temptation to get the propagators out (especially since my partner needs to help me dismantle this greenhouse and make some foundations so that I can have two greenhouses this summer)...

Very windy this morning. Unfortunately our front garden is full of rubbish as several neighbours put their overly full bins out with the lids thrown open and last nights gusts have unsurprisingly been hard at work. I wouldn't mind so much were it not so easy to just put a brick on yor lid to keep things contained. (Bins aren't going to be emptied until Tuesday).

Still maybe it'll inspire me to start clearing the front flowerbed. We're having the driveway widened so I wont be doing any plantig for a while

Sunflower are you wanting to do chillies this year? I'll dig out my stash of seeds and let you know what I've got spare if you like? Wont be long (in my head) til planting time!

The snow is making a tactical retreat here: 8'C outside right now that's insane!

There's still 6 inches of snow outside, my flower count wont take me long either KEF! 

Having a bit of a lazy day today. It's 09:00 and I'm struggling to find motivation to climb out of bed.
