Morning all. Monday (unless I have a school visit) is my day off. So can someone please explain why I'm the one that has to get up, turn off the alarm, and get out of bed to make a certain person a cup of tea, as he's going into the office early? 

4'C outside so at least all those workers wont be having to defrost their cars! I'll have to check the weather man and see how North Doves storms are hitting.

Good luck with the electrician.

Oh wow. I never would have thought of people doing that. Surely there is a food safe alternative out there to keep ponds flowing and everyone happy. (Aside from the asshats who will insist on ruining things just to spite others).

Just watched the big allotment challenge. Aside from the lack of gardening.... what an odd bunch of people (and i meet some really odd people!)

I'll stick to just gardening for fun!

Beautifully sunny here today. The ground is very crispy and unfortunately there's very little I can do outside so I've topped up the birds with enough food they'll burst, nearly broken a toe kicking some leaves that had frozen into a lump, and put some washing outside to air as I've just cleaned all the windows and left them all open to blow through the house and I'll be blowed if I'm having them steam up straight away with all this washing!

Now sat having a cup of tea (and a thick coat on) working out my "projects list" for the year. One of my resolutions was to not start a new project until I complete one. I'm up to 13 projects so far (excluding the decorating) that need my attention what with my half finished quilts, chicken coops to build, herb planters being ignored... so for goodness sake no one inspire me with amazing ideas for the next few months!!

Oh my!


Morning all.  Late night with friends so I'm tucked up in bed while his lordship snores away. I wish I could sleep in but once brain hits 07:30 it refuses to settle. Haven't opened the curtains yet to see what's going on but it was -1.5'C when we got in so I'm not expecting the tropics!

Morning KEF - yes it's definitely Saturday as it's my first day back at work and I need to go in early to get the heaters going as an old Victorian, not at all insulated building is going to be FREEZING! I wish the website made it clearer to visitors that we genuinely have no central heating!

Wish list for seed and plant swap

Does anyone want any "patriotic" red white and blue firework cornflowers? (Centaurea cyanus). They came with my NFU newsletter but don't really fit in with any plans at the moment (I'm afraid unless I can eat it plants don't get much interest in this garden).

Sow: April - May

Hardy Annual

Excellent for beds, borders, and containers,

Prefers ordinary well drained soil in full sun

Flowers throughout summer

Grows up 75 cm / 30 inches
