Well its safe to say puppy and I had better learn to decorate if we want to get this house sorted.

Puppy has already proven himself a liability in the garden as I haven't a daffodil left!

Morning all. 77 school children visiting today: at least I'm hoping so the school seem a little lacking in responding so I'm half expecting them not to turn up. 

Sunflower - meet Reggie! 9 months old bundle of bark and tail wagging. This photo was after yesterdays very muddy walk where I had to put him in my old hoodie to dry him off / spare the furniture.

There's also an issue with Poldark regarding their hens. I'm reliably informed they look like Warrens which weren't around (like oil tankers) in the time frame they're trying to portray.

Reggie and I went for a long walk this afternoon. He got very muddy. I got very muddy. He's now fast asleep on the sofa - I wonder if he'll realise its almost d.i.n.n.e.r. time!?

Where in the country are you Flowerlover? It will help people answer your question if they can roughly know where in the world you are so that they can factor in frost risk.

Dove - your seed sorting makes perfect sense to me. I have a slight habit of picking up seed packets throughout the year which makes for an interesting time trying to work out why I ever thought I would grow so much ... wait we don't even eat cucumber.
