Good morning all Yes the site was slow last night wasn't it - I went to bed early.
Figrat - thanks for the reminder - I did remember to go to the GC and get a garden thermometer - I've just been out to check and it got down to +1C last night (well, it's still there) but that's a definate improvement on recent nights I'm sure.
I also got a new pot for my lollipop bay which is in urgent need of repotting, some Blood,Fish & Bone, a big plastic saucer to use as a birdbath at work, some bird food and some wild-type foxglove seeds. I've got a plan - you may remember that I'm retiring later this year? What! You didn't know? I've mentioned it often enough I'm sure .......................... Anyway, where I work has Fox in it's name and is in the middle of some mature slightly unkempt gardens which I've sort of kept an eye on rather than leave it to the random strimming of the chaps who mow the lawns. I'm going to scatter foxglove seeds in sheltered spots under the apple and cherry trees, in the bed by my window and some other little corners - no one will notice anything this year (they're not "gardeners") but next summer, when I'm not there, there will be foxgloves flowering all over the place - and they'll be there for ever - I'll have left an indelible mark
