It's not superfluous if you pronounce it as it's suppose to be pronounced

Primroses/Primulas in borders

Posted: 04/01/2015 at 10:01

Are the ones in the churchyard in a sunnier spot?

Or maybe your primroses have been in situ for several years and are a little congested?  If this could be the case I'd split them in the late spring/early summer - primulas really respond well to division

OH has defrosted the bird bath for me  as I nearly went 'top over btm' on the terrace just now replenishing the food I'd put out for the blackbirds - they'd finished it all in 3 hours.  I suppose I should have had sensible shoes on

Bacon butties all eaten - lovely coffee thanks Lily !!!

Verdun, OH has healthy muesli with nuts, seeds and fruit too - and the occasional bacon buttie - moderation in all things

Garden programme on Sky 1

Don't get me wrong BL, we watch Four in a Bed too, but some of the competitors are rather mean-spirited and while that's sort of ok in a commercial enterprise sort of competition, people's gardens are so personal that I think you'd have to be very thick-skinned not to feel upset at unkind remarks about your garden. 

So much tv is very formulaic nowadays

Yes BL - I have your email - shall reply after breakfast!  Bacon butties all round folks?  It's some rather nice black molasses Suffolk-cured bacon which we were given free, gratis and for nothing since it was 24 hours past it's Best Before Date and there's plenty to go around

Does anyone want grilled tomatoes in their sarnies?  We've got a load of free tomatoes too
