HELLO FORKERS!

Is it me, or why on earth would half a million people sign a petition asking for the reinstatement of the objectionable, egotistical, yob....Jeremy Clarkson?

Not sure if this is a gardening trend, I visited Bridgemere Garden World today and spotted these animals for sale. Didn't look at all the prices, but for an example the sheep were something over £200.

Have we moved beyond gnomes and I didn't notice?

Hello again David, for various reasons I havnt done a lot of photography for a while and any pictures I post on the forum are just quickies taken with the phone or iPad I need to motivate my self 

 

Nice to see you anyway.  I think I need to motivate myself too....perhaps when the weather improves.

Although I still have my Fuji Finepix HS50 camera and wouldn't be without that powerful 24mm x 1000mm zoom lens and other useful features....I have recently bought a Pentax K50 DSLR camera.

PS,. If you still live in the same area, it's sacrilege not to be out there snapping.

is it too early to plant early potatoes?  When is everyone planting theirs.  I am in Suffolk.

 

Good advice already given, but I would invest in a (very cheap) a garden thermometer.

Potatoes will rot in the ground if the soil is too cold...they need it to be 40f (about 5 I think, in celsius).

David wow! I'm growing begonias this year doubt they will be that good or that size. 

You're welcome, KEF...although I've posted the same shot before, I did it with you in mind and of course, repeating oneself is one of the 'privileges' of being my age.

What an amazing sky Lizzie.  Nature can give us some glorious moments.

David they are massive, and so perfect they don't look real.

 

The size of footballs, Lesley
