Morning all! Just nipping in quickly to let you know I am still here. We had an amazing holiday which was well needed I'm now sat down sorting end of year accounts...

... as you can see its going well


You might get a giggle in that last year I dug two foot down and removed every bulb I could get from an area that is to be left to go to grass so I could plant them in a more appropriate area...

Returned home to see a beautiful display of crocus in the area that is meant to be just for grass while the intended area looks very bare and disappointing. You can't win sometimes!

Growing garlic

Go for it; there's still plenty of frosts due (frosts help divide the cloves I believe).

Exciting news Edd! As for sea sickness; adrenaline and getting acclimatised will help. I'm afraid I've always had a fine pair of sea legs, it's land that causes me all the trouble.

Other half is full of sniffles and wanted puppy to sleep on the bed with him last night. I couldn't tell if that meant he wanted me to sleep downstairs but "puppy" is definitely getting big now. Talk about a squeeze to get everyone in.

Back to work today full of enthusiasm and thermals. Have fun everyone!

Digging out Daffodils

Like Nutcutlet says; yes. If you keep hacking the leafs off you'll basically starve the plant and thus snuffs it.

I'm sure I'm meant to be doing the washing ... by the very nature of being on here I think you can tell how well it's going!

Steve take photographs of the bomb site! Nothing makes you feel better when looking at photographs than thinking "well at least it doesn't look like *that* anymore".
